Color My Bath - Fabulous!

Crayola has a tub of fizzing bathtub tints. I think it was $5 for a tub of 30 tablets - not a bad deal for some priceless bath time fun.
I bought them on a whim one day at Wal-Mart, thinking it might be fun to have a colored bath. I was a little weary of the warning on the label that said I might need to wash him off again once the colored water was drained, so I waited about 2 weeks before I tried it. This weekend, I decided the wait was over and soldiered ahead...we went with purple - one red tablet and one blue tablet. This, my friends, was a waste of 2 tablets. The purple was more blue than anything, so I won't be doing that combo again.

It was a success, and my little man wasn't blue when he got out of the tub - no extra scrubbing required! He loved it. Tonight, it's green bath night. One blue table and one yellow tablet - much better combo - it's a lovely shade of green.

That's cheap compared to similar products. I will have to check that out. Thanks.

So they didn't leave colored ring around the tub afterwards? I one had this fizz thing that stained my tub pink!! Took me forever to get it off!

That's a good idea! Peaches hates her baths. Maybe she'd at least like the colors.

Oh, The Joys said...

Cool! I'll have to check them out.

No ring around the tub. The bath crayons he got for Christmas left a ring around the tub, but this stuff was okay. Maybe after a few baths it will add up - I'll just keep my Scrubbing Bubbles at the ready!

I've seen this product before and have almost bought it on several occasions ~ I think I might have to give it a shot! My kids would have an absolute blast ~ it sure looks fun :-)

PS - I agree with you about the bath crayons ~ I was scrubbin' for days!

Thanks for the kind compliment regarding Bridget's shirt :-)
