Sara’s back with bath hacks!
Inspired by this really neat set of photos I ran across on flickr, I got my daughter some of the Crayola Bath Tub Tints — just drop a pellet into your bath and you get neat colored water to take your bath in. My husband, however, came up with the hack: Diffuse the pellets in a glass of water, and let your child pour them into the bath. Not hack-ish enough for you? How about putting a light colored pellet in the bath and pouring a darker color into the bath from the cup. My daughter — who isn’t even two yet — get that yellow and blue make green, and is working on purple and orange, too. I can’t think of a more fun way to teach color theory.
(Being the slacker mom that I am, I can also reassure you that washing hair with the colored water does not pose any problem, at least in my daughter’s dark blonde hair.)
