Crafting for kids and in particular babies really helps learning including among other things colours, numbers etc but it should be fun at the same time.
I think crafting is the best form of learning, it engages all the senses, touching a furry/slimy object, seeing brightly coloured neon gunge, hearing the rattle of beans in a jar, and the joys of smelling and tasting a bit of food fun craft (a snake made of grapes, anyone?)
So here is a fun craft bath project that can really engage the senses, i love the idea of turning the bath water a different colour using food colouring. This idea is such a cheap and easy craft but think of the hours of fun it will being. Also on the plus side it can be left for the adults to use when mum goes in the bath next!
Polka Dot Bath
This was such a simple and fun bath with an educational twist! I purchased a pack of round foam circles at Hobby Lobby to create our Polka Dot Themed Bath. With a little water splashed on the walls, craft foam sticks all by itself and can be peeled to stick and re-stick as many times as you’d like as long as the foam or the walls are a bit wet. Craft foam can be bought or cut into many different shapes and objects so it’s a really simple and cheap way to make bath time fun!
I also added neon purple food coloring to the bathwater as an added element of fun!
When it was time for my 15 mo old to get in the bath, I drained the bath a bit and moved the circles down along the inner tub walls so he could reach them safely without standing.
