Homemade Bathtub Paint

Is it bath time or just play time in the bathtub? Make bath time a little more fun with a batch of homemade bathtub paint. I absolutely love messy play for the kids with super easy clean up for this tired mom!

Homemade Bathtub Paint

All you’ll need is:

  • paint or food coloring
  • shaving cream
  • dish soap (optional)
  • paintbrushes- or just use your hands to paint!


Squirt some shaving cream into a muffin tin and add a little bit of paint or food coloring to each cup. Add a little bit of dish soap to each cup to help with clean up and prevent staining. Mix and you’re ready to have some fun!


 This is always a big hit with the kids. They painted in the bathtub for quite some time!
