Here are some fun learning games to do with your toddler in the bath tub.
SINK OR FLOAT – Collect several objects that sink, such as a washcloth, a full bottle of shampoo. Next find objects that float, such as a sponge, a rubber duck and a bar of soap. Ask your child, one by one which of the items he thinks will float and which items will sink.
MEASUREING CUP FUN – Measuring cups are a great bathtub toy. Encourage your child to pour water from the smaller cups into the larger cup. Ask her questions; such as, “How many half cups does it take to fill one cup? Let your child play with the cups, experimenting on her own.
SELF-AWARENESS – Learning body parts is a natural in the bathtub. Play a game with your child and ask him to name simple body parts as you soap them up.
SHAVING CREAM DRAWING – Spray unscented shaving cream on the inside of the bathtub. Encourage your child to draw simple shapes and letters in the foam with her finger.
