Kids: Fun Bath Colors
I am a firm believer in divvying up roles in a marriage, and I am happy to report that I am married to a veritable 'fun' parent. This takes so much pressure off of me so I can stay focused on the glamorous job of being the health insurance, paperwork, house picker-upper parent. Noah has our kids convinced that fruit can talk, made pillow fighting part of their bedtime routine, and can make up the funniest bedtime stories on ANY subject, completely off the cuff. It's uncanny.
About a year ago, Noah found this bathtub color dye and bought it for the kids. It was a smashing success, and now step 1 of every bath is for each boy to pick one color and toss it in the water. They love watching the colors mix and swirl, and it makes playing in the water even more fun.
Couple of cautions:
1. It can leave a... colorful residue.
2. When the kids both happen to pick yellow, it's a bit alarming... visually.
You can buy these on Amazon (you get 60 tablets for $7) and they make great gifts.
