Everyone loves bathtime with the kids but how do you make it a little different? With glowsticks or bath crayons.
We all enjoy bathing the kids, especially toddlers, as they get such enjoyment from being in the water. We've run through every permutation of fun, from boring water, to Mr Matey to empty plastic bottles.
Glow Sticks in the Bath
However, nothing quite gets Doofy smiling as much as his glow-in-the-dark baths. We are going to do a proper one soon, where the water itself glows, but to start with we are starting simple. Before I start off, I should warn you that I am sure that these products are NOT listed as being safe for small children. But I like to live dangerously. This in no way is a recommendation to you to go forth and use the products in a way that is not considered safe by the manufacturer.
Anyway, onto the fun stuff.
Go forth and buy some glowsticks
Drape a heavy towel over your bathroom window to make the room as dark as possible
Trigger the glowsticks and drop them in the bath
For the best effect, add a small amount of Mr Matey
Obviously this doesn't work if you have too many bubbles or Oilatum in the bath!
We get our glowsticks from Tiger Stores who are a great chain expanding very fast over here. They cost £1 for a pack of 10.
I never even knew these existed until quite recently. Brilliant idea! Basically your child can scribble on the side of the bath and then wipe it off with a damp cloth. It's a great way to help with their writing and scribbling. We bought ours from the USA (made by Crayola) but Kiddicare stock a range in the UK that you can find here . I haven't tested them though.
We made a proper glow-in-the-dark bath!!! Check it out here!
So, two great ways to brighten up bathtime! Let us know if you have more!
