10 Super Fun Bath Activities for Kids

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sterling for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Bath time has always been a favorite for my children. If the water didn't eventually turn cold, I’m pretty sure they could take up permanent residence in the bathtub. I really can’t blame them because I love taking baths too! Not only can bath time be soothing for kids (and adults) but there are also so many incredible ways to create the ultimate playtime experience for your kids using the bathtub. My daughter’s recent favorite way to play in the bath is with her plastic tea set. She enjoys filling up all of the teacups with her little kettle and setting them up on the ledge one at a time. Then she giggles as she pushes the teacups back into the bathtub and watches water splash everywhere. Since we are all about getting the most out of our bath experience at my house, I’m excited to introduce you to the new Sterling shower doors with ComforTrack technology and share 10 of my favorite Bath Activities for Kids that you can enjoy with your children.

I got out our patriotic paper straws the other day and we made this simple Flag Craft for Kids. It's a perfect little craft to keep kids occupied while you are preparing a holiday meal or attending a party.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Kids Craft

It's time for another monthly craft challenge from the Kids Craft Stars. This months challenge was to create a craft based on a popular preschool children's book. If you are regular around here you already know that making crafts based on children's books is one of my absolute favorite things! I have so many favorites that it was difficult to choose which book to use but we decided to create a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Kids Craft. The craft is not only bright and colorful, but it's a great way for preschoolers to review their alphabet. We also used one of our favorite crafting materials to make it, cupcake liners.
