In the tub, she can strip down, not ruin her clothes, and go to town painting the tub, walls, and herself. After she gets bored, we "play" clean up - any chore is fun for a toddler when you add water! And then we have a nice warm bubble bath after.
All in all, this kills a good hour or so... which has been great for these long winter days stuck in the house with freezing temps and snowstorms.
I addition to the fun painting the tub, which we use these finger paints, Ashlynn loves bath time. We pretty much do bath every other night, unless she needs one of course, and wash her hair about once a week... again, unless yogurt or peanut butter gets in it.
She has a variety of tub toys and loves them all. The educational foam letters and numbers, bath crayons, tea set, or submarine, she plays with them all the same. She actually loves playing with the cup that we wash her hair with and empty bubble bath bottles, so in true toddler fashion, we could probably get away without any toys at all.
She also loves to empty and fill up her Boon Frog Pod that holds all the toys between baths and she loves when it's time to drain the tub and "get the fish", the Boon Ray drain cover. We used to have a slow leak and bath time was always cut short, even after replacing our tub with a new drain mechanism a few months ago. The drain cover has been a life saver in keeping the water in the tub and keeping Ashlynn warm and bubbled up. Plus, she loves getting to pull him off the drain and then play "Neno" until the water is gone. Girlfriend, loves her fish.
And her bunnies.
Does your little one love bath time? What are your go to tub time toys?
