It is time for more messy play in the bath & sink!
For those of you visiting Growing A Jeweled Rose for the first time, the purpose of this series is to encourage messy play by illustrating how easy it can be to contain and clean any mess. Each week, The Golden Gleam will share a messy play activity in the sink, and I will share a fun playtime in the bath.
This week's messy bath play post is full of Halloween fun!
I had a lot of fun setting up this spooky bath time surprise! I used black food coloring to dye the bath water. The dye did not stain the bath or skin. Then I made ghosts coming out of the water using shaving cream.
I cut round shapes out of craft foam to use for the eyes and mouth.
Aren't these just too cute?
I also made large ghosts out of craft foam so that the girls could decorate ghost faces in the bath.
Rosie loved this!
Both girls had lots of fun exploring the ghostly textures
As the girls played the ghosts began to"melt"
The "melting" shaving cream ghosts only gave Rosie and Jewel lots more to discover and explore!
Both girls had lots of Halloween fun with this Boo bath!
The best part- all the mess was contained and easy to clean!
The "melting" shaving cream ghosts inspired another fun bath time too! Melting snowmen! Stay tuned....
Note- close supervision is needed so that shaving cream does not get into the eyes. Children learn so much through the handling of sensory materials like this but please only do what you are comfortable with for your own children.
Don't forget to pop over to The Golden Gleam to see the fun she had with ghosts in the sink!
