It hit 75 degrees today, which meant I got my little girl out in her bloomers for water play for the first time in her life.
Everything about this activity was novel for my six-month-old, from the soft towel we spread out on the grass, to the basin of toys I set out.
Fill a bin (or baby bath!) with lukewarm water even if it’s very hot out to avoid extremes in temperature, and add a few fun toys: I included bath toys, plastic spoons, and measuring cups.
Then I simply sat back and watched Veronika go! She loved reaching her hands in…
…and fishing out toys one at a time.
The spoons were a big hit.
You can add a little bit of bubble bath, too, for some foamy fun.
I also showed Veronika how to pour water from a cup, or splash her hands on the surface of the water to make splashy sounds.
Big siblings may want to get in on the fun, especially if it’s a perfect late spring day.
Needless to say, Veronika was soon soaked, but loving it!
She was having so much fun she didn’t mind one bit.
