Crafting with Kids: Bath Time Blues

Meet Stephanie! She’s a 24 year old stay at home Mom, who couldn’t ask for a better blessing than to be home with her daughter!! Their favorite things to do together is working on art projects and they enjoy sharing them with people at Crafting with Bug!! In her free time she enjoys reading and scrapbooking!!

My daughter has never been a fan of bath time! Weird….right? Well, anyways…We have struggled for the last 2 years to try to make bath time fun (or at least enjoyable). We have tried everything from bath toys to using the fizzy bath colors (which helped a little bit).

I can’t say that I am the quickest to put two and two together most the time but, eventually it does happen. While shopping for a ‘puddle jumper’ for my daughter to go swimming, I saw a floating puzzle in the pool section. Then it dawned on me….POOL TOYS WOULD MAKE AWESOME BATH TUB TOYS!!! (Why hadn’t I thought of this before!!!)

Once bath tub rolled around the next day I closed the bathroom door…filled the tub and took the puzzle apart letting the pieces float in the water. I shut the shower curtain and went to get my daughter.
Usually, when the bath is turned on my daughter starts her melt down. This time she didn’t! We had told her that I had a surprise for her so she was super excited! Once she saw it was a puzzle her eyes lit up and she couldn’t wait to get in and put it together!!!

Adding an element of surprise or something new and different has been the key to making bath time somewhat of an enjoyable time. I try to add some different element every couple of baths just so she stays interested. There are so many other creative ideas you can find online to help your little one if you are having that problem too!!!
