Straw For The Manager- a Christmas tradition with story and activity

Homemade Bathtub Paint

On my “Munchkin To-Do’s” board, I had pinned a recipe for homemade bathtub paint. The recipe calls for about a 1/3 a cup of shaving cream per 2-3 drops of food coloring.

What do you do when there is that certain wall your toddler just LOVES to color on? Besides the obvious- time out, “no no no”, do the crime pay the time (cleaning it up) techniques? You may not agree with this as a parenting technique, and that’s okay, I was just trying to survive the […]
