Fun way to paint in the bath. Really good sensory play.


  • 1 Can of shaving foam
  • food dye in 4 colours
  • 1 muffin tray


  1. Spray shaving into each muffin dip till they are full
  2. Add drops of food dye into the different muffin dips of shaving foam. I made cute colours by following the colour chart on the back of the food dye packet.
  3. Mix the foam and dye with a paint brush until colour is evenly mixed. You can use this paint in the bath or on paper. If using on paper let the foam sit for about 20 mins. After its set scrape foam off to reveal a beautiful picture!


My little guy loves painting in the bath like this. Once we are done we get paper to make a print off the side of the bath so we can keep his creation forever!

  • Does it make the bath very slippery?


  • This is better bath paint then the cornflour mixture recipe I saw the other day, easier to clean up. I recently paid a fortune for bath soap from the chemist


  • I hope the dye won’t stain the bath

    • If it doesn’t it will be fun to paint what ever you want


  • Shaving cream really is the good all rounder for craft.
