Bath Time turns into FUN time

I am very thankful that both of my kids seem to enjoy bath time.  My daughter has always had a ton of fun playing in the tub with little squirting toys, little mermaid toys, fish toys, bathtub paint, and letters and numbers.  Today we had a different plan and it was so much fun!   We turned the lights off and we put in some glow sticks and necklaces.  At our Dollar Tree they sell them so it was very affordable.  :)  So put that on your list the next time you are out at the dollar store.  

First I drew the bath and added bubbles.  The bubbles created a layer which in turn made it a game for us to find all the glow sticks and it looked very neat.  We also worked on colors too while playing hide-n-seek with them.  "Selah, can you find me the little pink one."  We were also able to work on number by counting them.  

All in all bath time today was very enjoyable.  The only thing that would have made it more fun is if I would have jumped in with her...LOL!  

How do you make bath time fun or even educational?  

Here are a few photos... I am not a pro when it comes to taking pictures with low light!  Would love to take a photography class.  




See how the water looks so cool with the glow sticks and bubbles!!


Here are a few things you could find on amazon.com to make bath time more fun at your house or would make a great birthday present for any little boy or girl.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
