Children have a natural attraction to water and love to splash around in it. All it would take is just a little time and creativity from your side to make bath time a great fun activity for your little one. This is also important given that bath time signals the end of the day and at this time, your child may still have the energy to play.. Are you ready to make the big splash to make bath time a good, clean, and fun activity for your little one?
Children are inclined to get bored with old toys over time, so you need to experiment with your toy selection to make bath time fun for them. For example, you can turn household items like funnels, spatulas, spray bottles etc. into toys. Introduce artwork to the bathtub with colorful bath drops, tile crayons, and paint. These are easy to find in your local store or you may surf the net for better ideas.
Choose from an assortment of tear-free baby soaps and shampoos with a fruity smell that also won’t cause irritation to your child’s skin. You can conveniently locate these in your local drugstore. Get innovative by creating a soap cloud, and your child, in turn, can make many shapes out of it. Try this, it’s worth the trouble! To make sure that taking a bath is not a one-time fun activity for your child, stuff your bath cabinet with things such as shaving cream and glow sticks.
