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.

We found many recipes online, but this method was the most common. The ingredients are simple:

  • 1 bar of white soap
  • Food coloring
  • Water
  • Candy molds or cookie cutters

Have fun!
