DIY Bath Paint Recipe

It was a rainy summer day.  The kids were going stir crazy.  So, I decided to mix up a batch of bath paint, fill up with tub with bubbles, and let them go to town.  They were occupied for a good amount of time…and it’s been a requested bath time activity ever since.

Here is the recipe for DIY Bath Paint:


1 tbsp Cornstarch

4-7 pumps of Baby Shampoo

1-2 tsp water

Food Coloring

Muffin Tin or Ice Tray

Paint Brushes


Mix the cornstarch, Baby Shampoo, and water in a mixing bowl.  Once thoroughly blended pour into a muffin tin or ice tray.  Place 1 drop of food coloring into each tin/tray.

* To fill an ice tray I had to duplicate this recipe 3 times.
