It’s rainy. It’s cold. Outside is not an option right now. Unfortunately we are at the end of winter, so the kids have been cooped up for an eternity. I have squeezed out every last ounce of interest the kids have in our regular activities. We needed something new.
Enter the bath crayons.
We have a bathroom that has only a shower unit in it. It is horrible. It actually has gold glitter flecks in it. Okay, back on track, sorry.
My original intention was to make a learning game out of it for Cole, but he wasn’t keen on matching upper and lower case letters (at all).
So I just let them have at it.
They scribbled away.
How else could you get a 2 yr old, 3 yr old, and a 4 yr old in an area less than 6 sq.ft. without any fighting? This lasted 20 minutes with all three! The younger two played in there another 10 minutes together.
So there you have an idea for emergency fun. The best part is that they are essentially soap, so clean up is a breeze. Works for one child or more. You can do it in a regular bath as well, just be sure it is dry.
