Do tidal waves hit your bathroom too? It’s amazing that after bath-time there is always water splashed about my boys’ bathroom. Encouraging fun and water play is important over here. After all, the boys have such a fabulous time fishing for toys, pouring water and playing water instruments. That said, I am starting to need to put some limits around this spash zone.
Somewhere between bath-time exploration and the splash zone has to be a middle ground. I am waiting to find it. In search of it, I’ve implemented the following golden rules. We’ll see how long they last. I’d love to hear your ideas too!
- Bath toys stay in the tub
- Water stays in the tub
- No dumping water on siblings
- No pooping in the tub
- And, last but not least don’t drink the water (see above)
No standing up in the bathtub.
Some beloved family member also gave us bath tub water guns for Christmas which are the current favorite toy, but bend all sorts of bath tub rule lines.
No standing is a good one too. And water guns- that is a challenge (but fabulous idea)!!
