Making Bath Time Fun: Extending Playtime
For the second part of our bath time post, we wanted to give you tips on how to make bath time an extension of playtime. Find fun things to go into the bath so your little one will associate bathing as a fun activity, a time when they can play games while getting clean.
1. Instead of having your little one be afraid of getting into the water, show them all the fun they can have in it! Oxo's Whale Pail is a great tool for the bath—the fun holes in the side let your little one see the showers of water raining down while you scoop up the bath toys using its convenient wide mouth. The Whale Pail also has useful little sunction cups on its underbelly so you can store your bath toys inside it, then stick the pail onto the wall until the next bath.
2. Underwater toys introduce clever ways to teach your kid the first concepts about the bottom of the ocean. The Submarine by Green Toys is a great, submersible toy that encourages your child to explore the terrain at the bottom of the tub! The Submarine is made from 100% recycled milk containers that save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, making the little vessel both earth-friendly and kid-friendly!
3. What better way to play in the water than having a toy that both floats AND scoops up water! The adorable Tugboat from Green Toys is a brightly colored super-floater, complete with a comfortable handle for those mini kid hands and a round spout in the front to get perfect streams of water to shoot out during bath time.
