How to Make Bathtub Finger Paints

This is a craft recipe to make bathtub finger paints. Bathtub finger paints are paint that your kids can use while taking a bath! They can paint pictures on the inside of the bathtub or if two kids are bathing together they can play tic tac toe or hangman or any game that requires drawing. They can also paint each other's face! When bath time is over, just wash the artwork away! You can also use this finger paint on wax paper or butcher paper too.

Step 1:  Gather the following supplies to make bathtub finger paints: 1 cup of clear and mild liquid dish detergent, 3 tablespoons of cornstarch, food coloring in different colors.

Step 2:  Mix the liquid dish detergent and the cornstarch in a small bowl until it is well blended.

Step 3:  Separate the mixture into separate plastic containers (do not use glass!).

Step 4:  Add a drop of food color to each container and stir with a small spoon or a craft stick. You can also mix the food colors to make different colors.

Step 5:  Put the kids in the tub and let them paint away!
