Bathtub Painting

To make Bathtub Paint all you need is:
  •  1 Cup of body wash
  • 1/2 Cup of Cornstarch
  • 1/2 Cup of Water
  • Kool-Aid (food coloring will give you brighter colors)
  1. Mix the cornstarch and water in a {sauce pan} until it is dissolved – it should still be a bit pasty, but not clumpy. Then bring the cornstarch water to a boil – stir constantly to get out all the chunks
  2. Add the soap and mix, heating on medium until just boiling. The soap should have a gel-like consistency as it cools. 
  3. Add Kool-Aid. {I guess that food coloring has the best results- I just didn't want it all over hazel's body.}

 *You can store your paint in an airtight container. The paint will separate slightly when stored, so be sure to stir well before use.*
