January 8th is a special holiday for self-care enthusiasts and fun-loving kids alike – Bubble Bath Day! This fun and unique holiday is a great way to make bath time even more special for your little one. Here are some ideas on how you can make the most out of Bubble Bath Day with your preschooler.
To begin your Bubble Bath Day celebrations, start by gathering some fun supplies. You’ll want a bubble bath that is safe for sensitive skin – no extra fragrances necessary. You may also want some bath toys, washcloths or loofahs. You can easily find these items around the house or at any store that sells home goods, making Bubble Bath Day an easy, budget-friendly celebration!
Once you’ve gathered your supplies, it’s time to start scrub-a-dub-dubbing! Here are some fun ways to jazz up your child’s basic bubble bath to celebrate the holiday.
Create a bubbly masterpiece
Let your child paint and draw in the bathtub with bath paint! You can find bath paint online, or make it yourself with food coloring and shaving cream. Allowing your child to create their own colorful, bubbly masterpiece is sure to keep them entertained during bath time.
Have a bubble competition
See who can blow the biggest bubbles by using just their breath or a bubble wand. This game is simple but lots of fun. Plus, it encourages good hygiene habits and builds important skills like taking deep breaths and blowing out slowly!
Have a photoshoot
What’s more fun than a bubble beard? Let your little one break out the snorkel, swim suit, and even goggles for a special Bubble Bath Day photoshoot. Use props like rubber duckies or beach balls for even more fun, or go old school and fashion a bubble wig on your child’s head.
Put on some upbeat music or classic nursery rhymes to sing along with as your child bathes. Better yet, create a bubble bath themed playlist! (May we suggest starting with the iconic “Splish Splash” by Bobby Darin?) Not only will some tunes liven up the Bubble Bath Day celebrations, it will also help develop early literacy skills as your child learns new words, phrases, and rhymes from the songs.
No matter how you decide to celebrate Bubble Bath Day with your preschooler, it’s sure to be an unforgettable experience that will have your child excited for their next bathtime!
