I love cheap, easy,and fun. This bath activity is just that. I love finding ways to add a little extra fun to bath time over here at my house. Since baby brother joined the family, bath time has been a bit crazy over here. Bathing 3 kids under 5 yr by yourself can be a challenge. Now that the kids are another year older our bath routine is becoming a bit easier. Due to the fact that bath time is more enjoyable I have started setting them up simple, yet fun, bath activities again. This sponge bath was perfect. It doesn’t require a lot of effort on my part and it’s a lot of fun for the kids all at different ages 1 yr, 2 yr and 5 yr.
What I used:
sponges from dollar store, color tabs for the bath, and scented bubble bath
What I did:
I filled the tub with water and added blue color fizzing tablets (found at walmart or online). I added a little bubble bath for scent and last added the shaped sponges.
Bath time is a great sensory play activity. Exploring the water alone is so much fun. the added color and scent just add to the experience for the kids.
Bath time is also a fun time to add a little extra learning fun in for t he older kids. Going over the colors and shapes of the sponges, you could even add a little counting. It was also a fun science experiment to see if the sponges would sink or float.
A sponge bath: easy, cheap, fun, and even educational. This is a keeper at my house. All 3 of my kids approve too. Hope you and your kids can enjoy this too.
