Pinterest Projects: Colored Bath Ice and Shaving Cream Paint

It is a struggle to get Ava in the bath some nights, and with a newborn at home now, I have less time to deal with her lovely stall tactics. Bath toys don’t entice her like they once did, so I scoured Pinterest for some fun bath activity ideas. These two were both huge hits!

First, we made colored ice cubes, which were so easy. You just have to put one or two drops of food coloring in each cube of water before freezing. I made a bunch and put the extras in a Ziploc bag in the freezer for future use.
Ava loved chasing them around in the bathtub and watching them melt. They also made the bath water change color, which she thought was super cool. So simple and so fun! Ice Cubes

As much as she loved the ice cubes, Ava enjoyed the shaving cream paint even more. And this activity was just as easy to prepare.

I simply mixed the shaving cream and food coloring in silicone ice cube trays

And Ava used a paint brush we had on hand (the foam kind might work better)…

She did a little hand painting as well :).

Shaving Cream 6 Ava was a very happy (and clean) little girl. DSC_0966   We will definitely be repeating both of these fun activities!

  1. what if you used washable paints with shaving cream? food coloring can stain? NO? YES?

  2. how about washable color-paint with shaving cream? food coloring might stain? YES? NO?

  3. Joyce – We didn’t have any problems with staining, but I think washable color paint would work well too! We also recently starting using natural food coloring made by India Tree (found on Amazon), which is great!

  4. Sole – Gracias! Mi hija no tuve mala reacción, pero es posible que hay riesgo de alergias. Podría usar colorante natural tal como India Tree (lo puede comprar en Amazon).
