My kids are not the type to jump at the chance to take a bath. Luckily these tips for helping kids enjoy bathtime keep bath time happy in our house:
- Let them pick a small toy or two to bring in the tub with their bath toys. Small plastic figurines are popular in our house, although I don’t allow Lego people or other pieces that have openings water can get into.
- Use craft foam to make bath murals – I got this trick from Filth Wizardry. Hooray for awesomely creative bloggers! I’ve substituted foam stickers in a pinch.
- We have found this Kids Shampoo Rinse Cup to be a worthwhile investment – although I’m pretty sure we didn’t pay the Amazon price for it. And, as at least one reviewer there noted, your kid has to tilt their head back for it to work (we tell our kids to look at the ceiling).
- Temporarily turn up the thermostat a degree or two in the winter. Especially if you keep your house in the upper 60s, like we do.
