To make these homemade bath paints was super easy. We typically make ours in little Tupperware with lids so that we are able to store whatever is not used.

To make this I prefer to use kid safe soap. While you could use dish washing soap or any type of liquid soap, I opted for kid-safe soap since it is my kids that will be playing with it. I wanted something that was gentle on their skin and designed with them in mind. After all, they most likely were going to end up painting themselves with this stuff…

I like to mix the base in a large bowl before adding in the colors. It makes less of a mess and goes quicker for me when I do it this way.

When it came to adding the cornstarch I did not follow an exact amount. Instead, I added as I went. The more cornstarch that you add the less opaque the color will be. For the best results, we usually do 2:1 – kid soap to cornstarch.

Once the base is completely mixed then I portion it out and add in the colors.

Also, cornstarch clumps. It can be a bit of pain. By using a toothpick I was able to poke apart those clumps with ease.
