Baby Bath Games – What you need to know?

Baby bath games are an amazing way to strengthen the all-important bond between parent and child. The quality time that you can get in the privacy of your bathroom is rarely matched, and the cuddles and snuggles that bath time offers can play a big part in a loving relationship.

Baby bath games can help to engage and relax kids in the tub. They can also make what is sometimes felt as an arduous time be that little bit more enjoyable! The beauty of baby bath games are that they are so simple, so easy to play, and so wonderfully enjoyable. There is no excuse not to make up your own games and do whatever it is that makes your little ones tick!

Physical Contact In Baby Bath Games

Babies (and moms and dads) love to be cuddled. Bathtime is a great time to soothe your baby, cuddle him and tell him you love him. The ‘Hairdresser’ game – trying out different styles of hairstyle on baby or parent – is a great one. Try and see if you can figure out which is the funniest style.

I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles

It goes without saying that bubbles are an integral part of bath time. They can also be an integral part of your baby bath games. Blowing the bubbles around. Covering bodies with them (and hiding in them) can all be lots of fun.

Simple Things…

Remember when you were a kid? Did you do something over and over again that would give you endless pleasure and enjoyment? That something was most likely something that you parents thought you were a bit mad for doing. Play with a carboard box is a favorite. How about just singing the same song over and over again? It might sound silly now, but at that time in your life – and that time in your child’s life – entertainment really doesn’t have to be Xboxes and PS3s. Sometimes the most simple games are the best.

And so it is with baby bath games. Not least because your Xbox will be a bit soggy if it goes in the tub with you…

 

Bath Games for Babies

Babies either love or hate bath time. Whatever attitude they take towards it, we’re sure that mom and dad are going to make sure they have one anyway!

Sometimes bath games enhance the fun had by children and their parents in the tub. Other times they can help to engage children and to help them relax more easily. Sometimes they may be the only way to get stubborn kids into the water! Whatever the motive, one thing is sure: they are a great idea in most situations.

Types of Bath Games

The types of bath games for babies is limited only by your imagination. Bath games for babies do not require expensive equipment or toys, and do not require you to learn complex rules! Just have fun! Here are some ideas.

Wind up bath toys

Wind up bath toys are one of the most exciting bath games for babies and children of many ages. Whatever their favorite cartoon or TV character, there is bound to be a wind up bath toy for sale somewhere. This toy alone can keep a baby’s attention for a whole bath session. Combine some role play and silliness from parents and you get a whole array of different games and entertaining situations.

Bath Sharing

As simple as it sounds, sharing a bath with your child (or children!) can be a whole game in itself. Give it a go! Singing, dancing, playing with bubbles, and much more can really be great bonding time for parents and kids.

Swimming

Swimming doesn’t have to start in a pool. Let your little one thrash around a little and give them some confidence in the water. Studies have shown that this kind of early introduction to self-propelled power in the water can lead to children who are much stronger swimmers in the future!

 

Tidy Bath Toys

Why The Bath Toy Tidy?

It’s great to have games and toys in the bath, but when bathtime is over it’s important that all the toys and games are put away neatly and tidily. From Mom and Dad’s perspective it’s nice to just have a tidy bathroom. From the kids’ perspective it’s essential that there is nothing to trip over or hurt themselves on. Baths are a place of great fun but they can be dangerous too.

This is where a bath toy tidy will become very useful indeed. From a simple rack on which all the toys are placed, to a bag or net into which the toys are bundled. Whatever form the bath toy tidy takes, it can be a lifesaver. Literally.

Bath Toy Tidy Fun!

A bath toy tidy doesn’t have to be dull and utilitarian either. Bath tidyies with the latest cartoon characters on it are great fun for the kids, and clearing up their mess can become a game in itself! If cartoon characters don’t appeal, then there is a huge range of brightly colored fish, whales, dolphins, turtles and other creatures (whether traditionally sea-bound or not!) to choose from. Whatever your little one’s current first love, there will be a bath toy tidy to match.

Choosing a Bath Toy Tidy

If you apply just a few commonsense rules to the purchase of your bath toy tidy then you will likely not regret your purchase.

As noted above, the bath toy tidy can come in a variety of shapes and sizes and this will influence your purchase. Do you like the colors and shape? Will your kids like them? Perhaps most importantly, will the bath toy tidy you’re looking at fit your bath? Buying an incompatible bath toy tidy is an easy mistake to make, bot one which you needn’t suffer.

Bath Toys For Babies

Bath toys for babies are a cheap and long lasting way to keep your children entertained in the bath. There are many different types of bathtime toy, some expensive and complex, others as simple as bubbles, hands and bodies.

Wind Up Toys

Wind up bath toys are a traditional toy that have proved themselves over centuries of use. Our grandparents played with them, and they’re still popular with our young ones today. From their favorite cartoon characters to more traditional animals and ducks: there is an impressive choice from a wide variety of shops and stores. Bathtime toys for babies don’t come more traditional than this.

Household Waste…

As strange as it may sound, it is entirely plausible to effectively recycle your household waste and turn it into fascinating bathtime toys for babies! Maybe ‘Waste’ is the wrong word, but it’s more catchy than “things from around the house that you might find on a day to day basis”.

Struggling for inspiration? Think things that will float quickly (bottles) and things that will sink quickly (marbles or broken toy cars). Playing submarines means you can turn anything into bathtime toys for kids! Let your imagination run riot!

Just YOU!

Babies and children love cuddles and contact with parents, so why not just use yourself to play with your kids? Bubbles and water make great playthings, and kids love them. Cuddle, dance, sing, swim. Get active in your bath. A great way to tire them out before bedtime, too!

Simple Solutions

Remember that it is quite often the simplest things that will keep your kids entertained for hours. Let them think up a game themselves: you’ll be surprised at how strange some of them are, certainly, but you’ll have great fun trying them out.

Wind up Bath Toys

Kids love wind up bath toys. Maybe it’s the magical unaided motion they achieve; maybe it’s the fact that they move in a fun and appealing way. Whatever the reason, it’s clear that for our little ones, wind up toys provide a great deal of entertainment and pleasure.

Here are some of the reasons why bath toys of the wind up variety are so popular.

Colorful Diversions

Most wind up toys – whether they are wind up bath toys or land-based variants – are very colorful indeed. With their flapping arms, nodding heads and wagging tails the toy’s colors are exaggerated and enhanced. This cacophony of color is understandably attractive to the young eye.

Interesting Shapes

Those flapping arms, wagging tails and nodding heads also make for interesting shapes to touch and to watch. Better bath toys are made so that they are very safe to sensitive skin, and of course they get thrown around and put in mouths… this is voyage of discovery for our kids, and bath toys should be made to facilitate this voyage!

Favorite Characters

Quite often wind up bath toys will be made in the image of a popular cartoon character, playful animals and sometimes automotive vehicles of some kind (particularly popular with slightly older children). Wind up bath toys fit well with things that would move in real live, as their mechanical motion can mirror that which is seen around us. This is a great learning experience for the kids, and it enables them to relate this moving thing in the bath to something they have seen today, or will see tomorrow.

The Wind Up…

The long and short of it is that wind up bath toys are a great way to have fun at bath times. They’re cheap, cheerful and tough. What a great choice for your kids.
