bathtime conversations

Friday, March 2, 2012

Just a little slice of life.  I recently bought that whale spout cover, and I love it.  I have been meaning to get it for awhile now, but I’m sure you know how that goes.  Things can stay on my list for weeks.  I relax so much more at bath time now, though, because I don’t have to worry about Vivi getting a scrape from the spout.  Baths are definitely one of her most beloved activities at the moment.  Do you have any favorite bath toys for your toddler?  Our collection consists of a plastic boat, a foam book, a cup, and a duck.  Vivi loves the book, but I’d like to find a couple more interesting things for the tub.  Please comment if you have ideas!

A couple of other things for the weekend:

(1) Thanks to Seed Factory for the post today.  Don’t forget about the event next weekend if you will be in town!  I would love to meet some of you, and the shop is too cute to miss if you haven’t been there yet!

(2) Check out Lay Baby Lay’s picks for adorable online boutique Darling Clementine, which is full of excellently curated baby items.  More on that later!

Happy Friday!

    Precious pictures! We have that whale too, and I feel the same way. I was always just waiting for my son to slip and catch the spout with his face :[ Sandra Boynton has a bath book called Bathtime and we love it. All her stuff is so cute!

      Oh, fun!  I love Sandra Boynton, so I’ll have to check that out!  Her books always make me (and Vivi!) laugh.

    That is too cute. You have a soap eater… I have a water drinker. Eww! My Chloe loves her stacking cups, the ones with holes in them. She pretends its a shower. And she likes her foam letters. I think I got them at HomeGoods or Toys R Us. They stick to the shower walls and now that she’s starting to learn her letters and knows her colours, we use them for all sorts of games.

    • Joni says:

      Well, Vivi is a water drinker, too!  I love those ideas – I’ll have to try some letters.  Thanks so much!

      I second the foam letters. They are $3 at target and a huge hit.

    Boon foam shapes are our favorite. I love to see the works of art my kids create, and I especially love that they are mildew resistant. The set we bought came with three plastic balls and two loofas. They are pretty much all they play with.

    Just bought Miss Vivi (and cousin Conner) a couple of  tub toys for Nana’s house.  I found them at Target.   One, the water runs through it and little wheels turn and spin, the other,  a duck checks the water temp.   I hope she has fun with them the  next time she comes to visit.

    The battery operated duckies from Pottery Barn Kids that have a crown on them are a lot of fun! Vivi is getting so big! Adorable!!

    The foam letters/numbers are great. My daughter learned all of them by 18 mos just from playing in the tub. We also have wash cloth puppets that are so fun b/c they ‘eat’ the letters & her hands etc.
    Pretty much anything that can get wet we played with in the tub…measuring cups, mini watering can, beach toys…

    Joni, I just saw an adorable recipe for DIY tub crayons on Pintrest… they are made out of soap and look so much fun. Vivi is just so precious!
