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.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
