We Play - Shampoo Paint

Don't forget to stop by Childhood 101 We Play where you can find lots of other great play ideas....

We     Play

Today we are sharing some Messy Fun so pull out the play clothes or use this idea in the bath/shower. Shampoo paint smells great and has a fun slippery foamy feel!

Shampoo Paint
6 Tablespoons of Shampoo
2 Tablespoons of Water
Food Colouring

Put the shampoo and water into a container and mix with an electric beater until it is foamy (kind of like shaving cream) then add a few drops of food colouring and mix

recipe was found here

It is fun to explore straight from the container

Lots of fun to paint on windows

Look how high I can reach Mum

Smudge it around a bit

and draw a few happy faces

Neevah had so much fun playing with this paint on our big window but I would recommend putting a towel down on the ground to catch the drips and to stop the ground from getting to slippery. Clean up was easy I just wiped the window down with a damp cloth however Neevah ran off to play outside before I washed her hands and her fingers now have a slight pink tinge.
Bring on Summer so we can try this outside :)

Lovely messy play there!!! I am never brave enough to do much of this type of play, but it looks like so much fun I might try it with Emma, and join in too!!!

Tina - you could always try it in the bath or shower that would contain the mess factor and be super easy to clean up :)

Dadda and Princess loved making pictures on the side of the bath in shaving foam when she was younger. Since moving, and us having our own bathroom, it doesn't happen anymore. Oh, and since I do all te bathing, because, as everyone knows, some games are just more fun with Dadda!

Such a fun messy play idea and I imagine it would be much easier to clean up after than shaving cream which can become rather sticky and unpleasant.

Philippa, Neevah and Liam said...

Thank you for all the comments :)
Marita - yes clean up was so easy it didn't go sticky or anything :)

It's fun to play with shampoo by finding another use for it.
