Gingerbread Bath Paint~ baby safe

Baby brother just loved his first finger paints for the tub I made him.  I just loved watching him as he explored painting in the tub for the first time.  A simple and fun sensory activity for baby has been his bath paints.  With the Christmas holiday coming up, I wanted to add a little holiday fun to the bath.  Last year we did a Peppermint Ice Bath that was a big hit with the kids.  I need to come up with something  a little different and baby safe this year.  The idea of making Gingerbread Bath Paints that were baby safe came to mind.

What I used:

Baby cereal, ginger, water, muffin tin, spoons, and gingerbread men foam sheets.


 What to do:

Add baby cereal to each muffin tin space.  Then sprinkle with ginger.  Add water and mix.  I mixed it until it was thin but not runny.  Last I added spoons.

I took the foam gingerbread men and wet the back of them.  I then stuck them to the side of the tub.  I sat the muffin tin full of gingerbread paint inside for the kids.


Now all the kids had to do was come in and play.  This is a great sensory activity for multiple aged kids.  My 5yr, 2yr, and 1yr all got to enjoy this.  Sensory play is a great way for the kids to explore sight, taste, and touch.

I would say that this is baby approved too.  Well, really just kid approved because all my boys enjoyed the gingerbread bath paints.

We enjoy painting the tub and foam sheets before we add water. This gives them time to have fun and make a mess.  When they get bored or too sticky we simply turn on the water and start rinsing them and the tub off.  Once rinsed, we fill with water for a normal bath.  Usually with a color tablet for more fun.
I hope you and your kids can enjoy this simple yet fun bath idea too.
