Today's tip: Do not use too much food coloring when you create your own bathtub paint.
I created this yesterday in an effort to be a cool mommy:
Its shaving cream and food coloring mixed together and separated in a formula dispenser. I put her in the bath with the paints and let her go to town. I then freaked out at the thought of her little body and "unmentionable areas" being stained with an array of color, after examining my own hands and seeing pink and green stains all over them. SO I pulled her out of the tub and set her up at the sink with her fun paints. The mess was worth it, she had fun, and the "unmentionable areas" were all covered:
Look at that sweet face!
My little artist!
So, if any of you brave mothers out there try this, which I highly recommend, go easy on the food coloring! As appealing as the vibrant colors may be, your kids will have fun with it regardless of how dark the colors appear!
