homemade bathtub paint

Bath time is always fun, why not make it even more fun by introducing paint to your baby. “Safe paint” made by you at home. Great idea when it’s inconvenient to go out and play.

Sensory play are very important to your babies and toddlers, they can experience stimulation of their senses. In other words your kids discover and understand life through their senses.

I spotted this recipe while surfing on the net. Very Easy and simple, only 4 ingredients:


  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup baby shampoo
  • 4-5 drops of food coloring
  • 2-3 tbsp water

Use a tear free shampoo, so when it gets into the eyes, it’s not the end of the fun.

I put the colors in separate disposable containers, no need to wash later, just throw them.



Now set up is ready… steady, gooooo

It was also fun for me, i was using my photography skills!

Can’t be more fun!


If you’re worried about cleaning, it did wipe away very easy with only water. No food coloring stains.

We loved the game… happy bath time!
