Bath time + Valentine's Day = an awesome mess-free, water-friendly craft

I set up the fun bath for my two preschool-aged children by tracing foam hearts on the walls around the tub using bath crayons. Inside the hearts, I wrote short words and phrases, very similar to the candy hearts you can buy around Valentine's Day. On foam hearts I purchased at Michael's for 40% off, I copied all the words I had written on the bath tub wall, and floated them in the bath tub water which I dyed a bluish-purple using just a little red and blue food coloring.

The kids had fun hunting for just the right candy heart in the water. Then they used the bath crayons to trace the letters I had written.
