By now, many of you are familiar with our wild and wonderful themed sensory baths. I really love creating these for Rosie and Jewel. With another holiday comes the opportunity to create yet another fun bath!
Rainbow Bath Treasure Hunt
The first thing I did to create this bath was fill the bottom of the tub with treasure. I used gold and green coins, necklaces, and shamrock gems, all of which I purchased at The Dollar Tree. Then I filled the tub with as many bubbles as I could. I find that most bubble brands work equally well, so I actually use the cheaper stuff, and just use A LOT of it! Then I spray painted a rainbow on the bubbles.
Isn't it beautiful?
To do this, I used Colorations liquid watercolors. I purchased mine from Discount School Supply, and I find them to be well worth the initial investment. Rosie has used them in so many ways, and uses them to spray paint the bubbles during her bath often! However, if you don't have liquid watercolors on hand, and want to recreate this, you can make your own liquid water colors. Our homemade water color recipe is simple and fast. The colors just won't be quite as vibrant.
I also decorated the bathroom wall with foam shamrock cut-outs. These and all foam shapes "magically" stick to the bath walls when wet . They basically act as bath stickers that can be used over and over!
Rosie was enthralled with this bath! She was so excited to see a rainbow in her bath! When first getting in, she was fixated on the rainbow itself. We talked about all the colors as she pointed to each one.
Then it was time to dig for the treasure!
Rosie had so much fun digging for the treasure at the bottom/end of the rainbow!
She was especially excited to discover the necklaces!
She would excitedly put each one on as she found it!
This was such a fun St. Patrick's Day themed activity!
Rosie absolutely LOVED this bath, so much so that I have created it for her twice so far. I have a feeling she will be asking for a rainbow in her bath often! I don't mind though. This bath was so fun and easy to create, and everything washes right down the drain after.
Note- The water colors did not stain the bath or Rosie's skin. They are washable. However, if you ever have any residual coloring from any of our bath activities fill a spray bottle with bleach, grab a sponge, and that should do the trick. This has always worked for us!
Rainbow Bubble Bath= SO MUCH FUN!
