Fun bath time ideas

Bath times aren't always the easiest things to get through, even once you've managed to wrestle your little one and their mucky mitts into the tub.

Little people have a very sneaky skill of avoiding the bath for as long as possible. But if you made bath times just another excuse to play, then they might be a little bit more keen.

These super-mums have found inventive ways to get their gang enjoying bath times. Not only will your kids love the creative play but it's also great for their development with all the sensory play elements. Gosh, mums are such a clever bunch.
