Bathtub Paints!

Standard

It has been Windy and cold here…I think the Groundhog lied to us. So we need to keep busy doing things indoors. Nothing wrong with that all you need is some imagination and pinterest http://teamdischinger.blogspot.com/2012/01/bathtub-paint.html of course (oh and if you don’t like messes…you may want to skip this)

what you will need:

corn starch

food coloring

baby shampoo

water

paintbrushes

ice-cube tray

Place 1 tablespoon of the cornstarch in each compartment of the ice-cube tray for every color you want to use.

then add a good squirt of baby shampoo to each one as well. I got cheap stuff from the dollar store for this.

add about 1-2 teaspoons of water and mix them up…I used a toothpick, use whatever you have handy

Get the wee one naked and put them in the tub with the paint!

It is messy…but it is confined to the tub, so when you are done, turn the water on and have bath time 🙂

About Alaskan at heart

I'm new to blogging, I am not sure why I wanted to start, I just did. I have done a lot in my life so far, and love to learn. I try new things all of the time, and love to teach myself as well. My passion is the great outdoors, I love being with nature. I hope that this blog can be funny, insightful, and full of knowledge. I am a Pinterest addict, I love all of the ideas I get from that wonderful site. I try a lot of things from there so there will be many Pinterest updates from me. That is me in a nutshell right now.
