Fun Find - Make Your Own Rainbow Bath Paint

I have ideas swirling around in mind but unfortunately have not had the time to start any big projects lately. Outside of attending Creative Estates, I haven't really done too much aside from routine wife and mommy duties. Yesterday I saw Design Dazzle had a fun post about making your own bath paint with food coloring and shaving cream. You can see the original post here. When my daughter fell and cried over her non existent ouchie, I decided it would be a perfect time for us to take a break from cleaning and make some bath paint.

Unfortunately we only had shaving gel and not white fluffy cream. The gel worked fine except that we started with a blue base color instead of white.

Be sure to keep in mind unless you want your kid, shower walls, and tub the color of your paint, only use a tiny amount of food coloring! We ended up with bright colors and I was sure my daughter would end up permanently blue or red by the end of our fun.

My daughter had so much fun painting in the bath!!

I'm happy to report my daughter was not blue when she came out of the bath. I was also surprised by how easily all the color wiped right off the shower walls when we were done.
