There’s a new favorite bath toy around here, and it’s as simple as this: leftover foam sheets from the craft store!
I happened to have circular ones, which were the perfect material for the tub. They are slightly smaller and thus easier to manipulate than standard rectangular sheets you can purchase. If you have big rectangular ones, consider cutting into smaller shapes in a variety of squares, circles, and triangles.
Veronika was soon squishing them in her hands in the water with glee.
I showed her how to stick them up to the wall as soon as they were wet, and she proceeded to pull them down and stick them back on all bath.
Rather obviously, the game was great for talking about colors, too! Could she put her hand on the blue one? Could she hand me a green one?
As a bonus, leave them in the tub for older siblings; big brother Travis turned these into “lily pads” for toy animals!
