When children engage with their environment and use natural resources in their play, they are building their sense of understanding of the world around them, their understanding of their own abilities and influence on their surroundings. Water play is both fun and educational and has a range of benefits for your child’s social and emotional development, as well as developing their physical abilities and early literacy and numeracy skills!
To create your very own DIY bath paints you will need:
(for each colour bath paint that you want to make)
-1 tablespoon corn flour
-1 tablespoon bath soap or bubble bath
-1-2 drops of food colouring
-1/2 teaspoon of water
Add all the ingredients to a container – we like using a paint palette for this but you could use a small bowl or container. Combine with a spoon or a paintbrush. Start painting!
You can adjust the consistency of the paint by adding more or less cornflour, water or soap
