Veronika is old enough now to enjoy games of hide and seek. Tonight, I put a fun spin on the game by taking it to the water!
Toss a variety of container lids into the tub at bath time. Ideally these would all be opaque with an older toddler, but with my one-year-old I didn’t worry that some were see-through. The lids themselves are half the fun of the game, since they will make excellent bath toys.
While she was watching, I put a rubber frog under one of the lids.
“Where’s frog?” I asked. She didn’t get it at first, reaching around for other lids. But I showed her how to lift the correct lid and declared, “There’s frog!”
Now she was interested. I hid him under another lid, and this time she proudly looked around, then reached under.
Needless to say, the lids and frogs made for a great bath time.
