Some things are pretty mundane. Dishes, laundry, bathtime. But when you are three, EVERYTHING is exciting, and Mother Goose Time always provides fun stuff to build on that enthusiasm! I was really looking forward to this week because there were a lot of easy activities to really entertain Little Guy.
We started the week with Bath Time. First we read Harry, the Dirty Dog. Despite it being a very old book, and pretty cute, I don't think I have ever read it. Little Guy really liked it and has been looking at it a lot since we read it.
Our first game was supposed to be done with sponges, but since I don't have any sponges, we used a weird clip thing from those vacuum seal bags. First we spun the spinner, then we had to balance the "sponge" on the parts we had spun. First he had fun balancing them on his body, then he thought it was way more fun to balance them on me.
We finished up school time with a bubble bath. Honestly we don't do baths in our house. Other than babies that are to little to sit up, everyone showers here. At one point I had a 1, 2, 3, and 4 year old who all needed to be clean, and running each of them a bath was way to time consuming. So we started with showers, which take 5 minutes at most. So a bath is actually a bit of a treat at our house, and Little Guy stayed in there for at least an hour. The water was not warm anymore and he was as wrinkly as a raisin, but he still wanted to stay in there. While he was in there we worked on sorting and fine motor skills, using a spoon to scoop out the Boat Counters, and then sorting them by color.
The picture sucks, but there were only so many pictures, and I needed one with no face and no privates, so this fuzzy one is what we have.
A quick comment: I do clean my tub (not as often as I probably should, but it does happen) but the caulking around the edge has been stained since we moved it.
