Gus hates taking baths, but loves to paint. Put the two together and you have a winning combination. Bribe bath time with painting time.
This particular concoction is liquid soap of your choice + cornstarch + food coloring. [My mom just sent me this great video on making your own natural food coloring.]
Ah, I do see a slide in the middle of those squiggly lines.
A couple of days after we first did bathtub paint, I let Lena and Gus take a bath together. Well, actually, I started off with just Lena taking a bath, but Gus pretty much demanded to join her since it meant painting. They played nicely(and quietly!!!) together for about an hour, covering the bathtub walls in this soapy “paint”.
Super easy. Super fun.
