After writing my post on helping a toddler who is afraid of the bath, I added a list of bathtime toys for toddlers to make maths more fun, but I kept on thinking about a fellow blogger I know who writes these neat posts about sensory themed baths. I wondered if she would share some creative bath ideas with us, and here she is!
Hello, my name is Crystal, and I am so excited to be guest posting here today!
I am the writer of Growing A Jeweled Rose, a play based website where I share play and learning activities for small children. One of our favorite ways to explore and play is during bath time. Given our love of bath time, and Alissa’s recent struggles with bath time fear, I thought it would be helpful to share a few bath tips.
Do you have a little one who is afraid of the bath? I hope you find these tips helpful! If not, hopefully you will still try some of these ideas just for fun!
Distract them from the intended purpose of bathtime.
Make bathtime appeal to your child’s current interests.
Let them collect and choose a variety of toys to take to the bath that are not normally part of bathtime.
Crystal is currently staying home with her two small children, Jewel and Rosie. She firmly believes in the value and importance of play, and strives to make the most of everyday. She loves coming up with fun and creative playtimes ,and sharing them on her play based website, Growing A Jeweled Rose.
