Homemade Bath Crayons

Here is a simple and easy recipe for making some easy clean-up bath crayons for your little one to help keep him entertained in the tub.

  1. Buy some glycerin soap at a craft store.
  2. Melt it in the microwave, add food coloring, and our into a mold, such as an ice cube tray.
  3. You can also add essential oils if you want them to be scented, though most people find that unnecessary for bath crayons.
  4. They will take about an hour to cool completely, then you can pop them out of the mold.
And voilĂ ... you have bath crayons!


  1. what kind of food coloring - i always worry about using food coloring i am scared it is going to stain

    1. Good point about the staining...I'd be concerned, too. My daughter has some store-bought bath crayons that come off of tile very easily, but I don't know about fiberglass or acrylic tubs & showers. If you are interested, www.indiatree.com (and many other online retailers)‎ have natural food colors; they are also available from Amazon.com and at Whole Food grocery stores. I have not used these yet, but would prefer using a natural ingredient for edibles.
