Easy Clean-up Finger Painting

Want a mess-free way to let your kids finger-paint?

Put kids in the bath, mix some color with shaving cream in muffin tins, and, presto! Instant, easy-to-cleanup fun!


  • Washable kids paint (I use a 10 pack of Crayola Washable Kids Paints. About $5)
  • Shaving Cream
  • Muffin Tins


  • Fill each hole with shaving cream
  • Add 1 Tablespoon of paint to each blob of shaving cream
  • Mix each color separately
  • Hand kids the palate (or hold it if your kids are little) and enjoy!

Tip: I usually wash my kids first- that way, once all the painting is done, I’m not washing them in multi-colored water.
