By Today's Parent

Need to kill some time on a rainy day? Try this fun activity. All you’ll need is shaving cream, washable paint, a mixing bowl and a muffin tray—oh, and a bathtub!

1. Dispense shaving cream into a mixing bowl and add some washable paint.

2. Mix the shaving cream and paint together until the cream is evenly coloured.

3. Pour or scoop the cream into a few of the muffin tray cups.

4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 to make as many colours as you want.

5. Give your kids a bath and let them use the bathroom tiles as a canvas!

When they’re done, it will wash right off with the tub water.
