For each color bath finger paints you will need:
1/3 cup mild liquid soap
1 to 2 tablespoons cornstarch
Squirt bottles or small plastic tubs from dollar store
Put 1/3 cup liquid soap into a squirt bottle or small plastic jar and add 1-2 tablespoons cornstarch and several drops of food coloring. Close slid tightly, then shake well until food coloring and cornstarch is completely mixed – this is a great job to give the kids, just be sure the lid is on tightly first!
If you are having trouble thoroughly mixing the giner paints, place the bottle or jar into warm water for a few minutes, as colder liquid soap tends to be harder to mix. Use this recipe to make as many colors as you’d like, or let each child in the family choose their own color to make.
Because the base is soap, it will wash off, and wash the kids at the same time. When their bath is done, give them a quick rinse in the shower, especially if they have used a lot of finger paints!
