As moms, dads and grandparents we are always looking for ways to save money but yet keep our kids occupied and when it comes to bathtime fun...I prefer to go the frugal way for our little one. We make homemade bath crayons here at our home and our wee one loves playing with them while in the tub. Here is the recipe we use when we make them.
Tub-Time Bath Crayons
You will Need:
1 cup grated Ivory Soap
1/4 cup warm water
Plastic Cookie cutters
How to: Mix water, soap & food coloring together in med. size bowl. Stir the crayon mixture until it begins to stiffen. Remove the mixture from the bowl and knead until it is the consistency of a very thick dough. Spoon Crayon Mixture into plastic cookie cutters or other plastic molds (playdough molds work great too!). Press down firmly. Place the plastic cookie cutters in your freezer for 10 mins or in your refrigerator for 30 mins. When firm, Pop the bath crayons out of the cookie cutters (or other molds) and allow them to air dry overnight or until hard.
