Veronika is sitting so well in her tub now that it felt like time to mix things up and add a new game to our standard splashy fun.
First, I used a set of foam building blocks, normally a playroom toy, as bath toys. These were great because I could push them down under the water and show her how they instantly pop back up.
She got the idea right away! With each pop up, I made noises of surprise and delight, which soon had her doing the same.
If you want, you can also purchase foam sponge toys intended for the bath. We love the animal bath toys set from 3 Bees & Me, which comes with a handy storage bag and features everything from a tiger to a squirrel to a kangaroo. These are large enough for the littlest hands to grip, even in slippery water.
As with the blocks, I showed Veronika how to push them underwater and then watch them surface again.
Of course they found their way quickly to her mouth, too. In sum, we’re excited to play with foam in many a bath to come!
