B Week- Bubble Bath Paint

I found a recipe for bubble bath paints on Pinterest from a great blog called Meet the Dubiens. I decided to adapt the recipe a little so that it would create even more bubbles, since Trip has become quite fond of bubble baths as of late.

My adaptation requires four ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup baby bubble bath or body wash
  • 1/4 cup dish soap (I prefer an all-natural kind. I used Seventh Generation Free & Clear which makes great bubbles and is kind to Trip's skin.)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • food coloring

Simply mix the ingredients together in an airtight container and you're done. I only made one color, but if you want to make more colors, just pour the soap and cornstarch mixture into several different containers and then add the food coloring to each one. This recipe lasted us for two baths, with a little extra left for a third.

Trip had a fantastic time painting the wall of the bathtub. I held the container of paint for him so that it didn't accidentally end up getting dumped in the water. He would paint with one hand and then spread it around with the other. He also enjoyed watching the paint drizzle off of the paintbrush into the water.

I wrote a B for him and he was not too pleased that I was using his paint.

Little by little, more and more bubbles started to form in the tub.  

Toward the end of his bath, I gave Trip a sponge and let him clean the walls. He wasn't too interested in that, but it provided an easy opportunity for me to give the walls a good scrub.

  1. Such a fun and easy idea! I love that you are using the free and clear soap, even coloured bubbles can be gentle!
