B is for. . . Bath time fun

Today im linking up with the lovely Jess For IBOT.
Go ahead and link up!

Sometimes I feel like I'm not playing with Ethan enough, or that we are doing the same things and playing the same games all the time.
So I decided to mix it up a little and im going to be posting some good and bad ideas that I find for playing with little people, and fun ways to interact with them.

Last night we made bath time a little more interesting.

Bath time balloon fun!
(never take your eyes of children in the bath, especially with balloons, if popped they can become a choking hazard)

This one is as simple as it sounds. I filled a normal birthday balloon, with water. Using different shapes and sizes. I then let dude play with them in the bath.

Let me tell you, he loved it!

If you had older kids you could also fill the balloons with other objects! Toys or marbles or even glitter (if your that brave) Balloons make for such an easy fun way to enhance play.

Ethan was trying to pick up and hold the smaller ballon, which is great for his developing motor skills.

Play absolutely matters! and I look forward to sharing more playtime treasures with you!


  1. What a great idea !!! He looks like he is having heaps of fun.
    Have a great week !

  2. Oh what a GREAT idea!! I was always stuck with what to do when Lior was little like this. I'm sure he'd like this game now though too!! Might be a good variety to add some air filled ones as well!

  3. Balloons are awesome cheap fun aren't they? ...and what a cutie your little Ethan is. x

  4. Great idea, I get the guilts all the time that I'm not playing enough but my youngest has two older so I kinda leave to them - which prob isn't great. Love this!

  5. How cute! He looks so happy!

  6. What a great idea, and what a super cute little dude! Thanks for sharing.
