We love us some light play activities at home and at our early childhood center!
We have been having light baths ever since our eldest was a teeny babe. Someone had given her a small sphere shape bath light from Avon, and we have of course added glow sticks to baths.
SAFETY TIP: DO NOT CUT GLOW STICKS OPEN!
I once saw a #fail post when this became a trending pin on Pinterest thanks to the gorgeous photos from Growing a Jeweled Rose. Someone didn't read her instructions, cut open some glow sticks and poured the content's into their kids' bath. Glow sticks contain a GLASS TUBE with a separate liquid, which is why that cracking sound happens when you snap it - the two liquids combine to activate. You DO NOT want that inside your child's bath water!!
So when we had an freezing rain storm causing all school boards to shut down for the day yesterday, having a fun bath activity was added to our day's list of fun things to do. The kids chose the bath light, lavender bath bomb, and mermaid dolls for some magical play.
My daughter was missing her original bath light she received from a friend who ordered it from an Avon catalog YEARS ago. It finally died... but Santa came to the rescue when he left one under the tree this past Christmas. (He knows his stuff doesn't he? Wink, wink.)
