Toddler Activity: Bathtub Paint

It's really no secret that I have a little boy who loves to be outside.
And we all know that it's fall, and its getting cold out.
And we live in Utah.
And its already snowed, TWICE.
And that means, we're inside a lot more.
And honestly, little dude does NOT like it.

So we've been working hard to find some fun activities for our little dude to try!
Like this Bathtub paint!

How to do it:
Mix shaving cream and food coloring in a muffin tin. Stir with your finger or a spoon, then paint!

Some secrets to success:
Keep it off the grout. It WILL dye the grout, but not the tiles or the inside of the tub.
As long as its stirred well, it will NOT dye the baby. If they do get it in their hair (like Little Dude did!) use Dawn dish soap and warm water, it will come right out!

I'd share more photos, but they weren't really "blog friendly," if you know what I mean. He had a blast painting the tub, and himself! After it was done, we drained the tub and used the shower head to rinse him and the tub down. He's actually asked to do it again since then, so we know we have a fun activity for winter now! 

Have you ever tried this before? Did it work for you?
