This is a quick and easy DIY activity that will help teach your baby about cause and effect – and make for a great bath toy!
Use a leftover container from the grocery store that has an easily-pierceable lid: think non-dairy cream cheese or cottage cheese (if your family eats dairy).
Use a small screwdriver or metal skewer to pierce holes through the lid. It helped to twist the screwdriver a bit to make the holes wide enough.
Fill the container about half way with water and add the lid. Invert over your baby in the tub, and watch the water shower down!
Veronika looked up in wonder – and of course tried to reach for it.
I had to give the container a little squeeze for the water to come out, which was nice since I could control the speed. Drizzle the little shower of water over your little one’s tummy or hands, and then encourage him or her to take the container and continue the fun!
Once in her hands, she was more interested in the container itself than in making it “rain,” but one way or another, it made for a fun bath.
