DIY Bathtub crayons that works and doesnt stain!!!
This has been on our to do list for a very long time...every recipe i saw used food coloring ...but i was pretty skeptical to use the food color becoz of 2 reasons...one it stains the skin,bath tub and second reason stuff gets thrown around the bathtub when Ri is taking a bath.. so after much thought i used the non toxic safe on skin water color instead of the food color...so far it has been good and both my girls are using jus to draw only on the walls and the tub and not on themselves...
Any white soap ..we got a 3 pack jergens soap from dollar tree since they were out of ivory tree
Non toxic skin safe watercolor or food color ..I got this HERE
A little cute helper
How we did it:
1.Dee grated the soaps.
2. Then we added water and mixed it
3.Then we separated into 6 balls and added 6 colors to it and kneaded it well..
4. Placed it in silicone molds and kept it in the freezer for 10 minutes,... It was still wet and so air dried it overnight.
5. Morning it was ready to use and we tested on the bath tub and walls and the darker colors was very visible.. Pink was cute too ...Most importantly cleanup was a breeze
I was even able to scribble in the mirror with them...
Now fingers crossed that atleast i get one comment for this post!!!!
