You can make crayons out of soap and food coloring (see recipe below) to create a semi-messy bath time activity. This can be a fun way to introduce messy play to children who become distressed by finger paint or other activities that create a mess. Your child can use these homemade bath crayons to write on the tub and even on himself while bathing, all while getting clean in the process.
- 1 bar of white soap
- Food coloring
- Candy molds or cookie cutters
