could someone tell me how to make these? I 'read about them on craftster  but didn't pay attention. these are for 5& 6 yr olds.
I need cheap Christmas ideas. My DD's husband is divorcing all of them and they have nothing.
I would so appreciate all help.

their white cat loves the tub!  I would also like to know if the paint color would be safe for him and would it dye his white fur?

Hi! A really easy and cheap bathtub paint is to mix bodywash or shampoo with acrylic paint. Acrylic paint is non-toxic, so it would be okay if the cat "accidentally" ate it, and because of the soap in it, it should wash out pretty well too!

Kids love doing crafts, and you can buy construction paper, scissors, crayons, glue and odd pieces at a dollar store very inexpensively. And you can toss in any misc bits and bobs from around the house (tissue boxes, paper towel rolls, scrap bits of material from old clothes, elastics, shiny bits from food wrappers).  Kids have great imaginations!

I know I would have LOVED a batch of cookies all for myself when I was that age!

If you want to give a little more info about what their interests are, I should be able to come up with a few more ideas.

Hehe I think the kids would find it pretty entertaining if the cat was green for a day.. or blue.. or pink! If its okay with their mother, maybe buy them a pack of coloured fabric markers (that are kept hidden other times) and letting them draw on some of their own plain old tshirts? They'd love being able to wear clothes they've decorated themselves, and if you use old clothes, it wouldn't be too expensive, and the markers could be used another time. In Australia, I got a pack of the markers for about $10, so other places would be even cheaper I think!

And just remember that having a grandma around who loves them and cares about them while they're going through difficult things, that will mean the world to them!
