This bath was so simple to set up and was ULTIMATE bath time FUN!
To create a color splash bubble bath all you need is powdered tempera paint and a tub full of bubbles. If you don't have powdered paint you can also use sidewalk chalk. Just place the chalk in a zip-lock bag and crush it up using a hammer or similar object. Note- there are a ton of ways to use powdered tempera paint in play so it is worth the investment if you love creating lots of fun activities for kids. We have these powdered tempera paints.
After I filled the tub with heaps of bubbles I sprinkled our powdered paints on the bubbles surface. This was instantly beautiful and only got more beautiful as the girl played.
Color Mixing Art and Sensory Fun
Rosie LOVED this!
Red + Blue= Purple
Blue+ Yellow= Green
This bath time was full of sensory and art exploration! Rosie and Jewel had so much fun and I even think Rosie understood a little of the color theory we talked about as she played.... though the biggest thing she saw was all the magic happening right before her eyes!
Note- all mess washed right down the drain. If you ever have any residual coloring fill a spray bottle with bleach and it will take it right out! Visit our tips and tricks page for more cleaning tips.
