Make bath time for the kids extra fun by making them this super easy bath paint; it’ll only take you two minutes!

Bath paint

Pinterest bath paint


  • shaving cream
  • food colouring


  1. Use a muffin tin or bowls and fill with shaving cream.
  2. Add a couple of drops of food colouring to each bowl and mix to make the coloured paint.
  3. Give the kids brushes and they can get busy painting. (The paint will easily just wash off afterwards.)

This is a great relaxing activity for the kids when they’ve had enough of playing the same games and will easily fill in the dreaded ‘whitching’ hour at the end of the day when the kids are always grumpy.

Would your kids like to use this paint in the bath?

  • Anything like this is so much fun.


  • I bought my grandson some bath points and he had a ball with it. Thrilled to find some make your own. I have shaving cream and food colouring


  • My boys did this at kindy, a great idea :)


  • yeah this is too easy and a lot of fun. cleans up fine


  • This sounds great and I love the simplicity of it!


  • Love the idea on the tiles or bath but just wondering how well it will come off of the wall or window sill.


  • Brilliant idea. I love it. And so simple…!


  • Lovely idea ! Will make some for my smaller ones. Only danger with my youngest would be that she would try to eat it and I wouldn’t be happy with that (too much chemicals and poisonous colours).


  • What a great idea. There is also another recipe where you use cornflour


  • Wish comments like this were around many years ago. It might have stopped my neighbours child from painting everything in sight with an oil paint [vivid green] that she and I had to remove before her husband got home. It wasn’t an easy job and we still talk about it 40 years later.


  • Great outdoor activity on the cement or pavers outside, if you haven’t got pets that are a bit too curious.


  • All messy craft ideas most welcome! :)


  • My daughter would have probably liked it when she was younger. :-)


  • Alot of messy fun for the little ones!
