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
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.
