Shaving Cream Paint

It’s been a mild winter here, but there are still days that it’s just too cold to go outside to play. One thing Harper loves to do is play in the bath, and one day this week, it was a play inside in the bathtub kind of day.

I found a fun paint recipe on Pinterest that only requires shaving cream and food coloring, so I mixed him up a batch of paint.

He thought the paint was really cool. He grabbed his painting “instruments” and got right to work!

He painted the tub:

And he painted himself:

It was a great way to keep him busy in the bath while I cleaned the bathroom and we ended up mixing up another batch for his regular bath that evening. And, no, the food coloring didn’t stain anything in my bathroom…Harper loved using a washcloth to wipe it all away when he was finished so I didn’t even have to do any clean-up at all!

we did this last night. it was a spur of the moment thing and we only had a travel size bottle of cream. ave loved it but i was wondering if they make shaving cream that doesn't have a scent? after a while the "manly" scent was a little overwhelming to me. didn't bother him but i'd prefer a scentless activity. ;)
