Winter time? Time to bring the water play inside!

I love bath time fun. It makes bathing enjoyable and something that we look forward to, it brings an exciting element to something that is otherwise very routine, and it is a chance to add sensory, discovery and learning activities to our day.

It also gives my eldest some ‘alone with Mommy time,’ without her hair being pulled or her toys being stolen by her baby brother!!

Bath Time fun for Kids


I was so inspired the other day by a post I read… Debbie created this fantastic bath for her grandchild! Wow wow wow, what a clever a granny!!!

I got out the paper and pen – so to speak – and collected more fun foamy ideas!

Have a Splash Around!…

Debbie made this beautiful flower bath for Evie! Lucky Girl! Is this not the prettiest bath you have ever seen! Inspiration for sure! (she even gets a butterfly sponge – going to have to make one of those for sure!)

Little Duck Bath Time Fun

Fill the bath with things!

I call this sensory overload.

Create a theme and fill it up!

Last week I found all the ducks we had, and we had a little duck bath!

It was fun, and would have been more so if it were not for the fact that the ducks kept on face planting into the water and Emma spent the majority of her bath ‘saving them!’

Dinosaur Play – and Excavation!!!

Dinosaurs with a little bath paint!!

Could Not be more simple – the KIDS LOVED IT!
