DS loves to play with his cars and a square cup that has a hole in the bottom letting water out, he calls it a "wee'er"!!

A squirty fish and set of cups. She is always amazed that the cup is empty when it gets tipped out. I love the look she gets on her face. Pure astonishment!

DS and DD are 14 months apart so bath times are always fun! they each have a ducky, one is blue and one is pink, plenty of blocks and plastic toys in with them....makes me wonder how i actually fit them in the bath!! original.gif

Wy two kids love to have baths together they fill it up to the top with bubbles and get tupperware containers and splash we other until the bath is empty and the floor is flooded, that is everynight unless I remember to go and turn off the taps.

Measuring cups from the kitchen! Bath toys were the one thing I never bought and measuring cups seemed to do the trick so why mess with it!

My 2 babies love to practice their swimming lessons word for word  (complete with songs )in the bath, so we normally end up with a flodded bathroom from splashing, kicking, paddling, and back floating... I feel like wearing MY swimmers just to bath them.

Ever since starting swimming lessons, DD has not been very interested in playing with toys in the bath.  She would rather splash water everywhere!  And she has a good laugh when she gets her mummy wet!!   rolleyes.gif

The water. Rhiann loves bathtime, and she'll go from screaming the house down, to cooing happily within moments of touching water.  wub.gif

My daughter loves to play with glow sticks in the bath.

We turn the lights off and she has a 'glow' bath - similar to when mummy has a bath with candles.

The lighting is dim and she is always so relaxed and ready for bed after a glow bath.

They play a game of who can get the wettest first and love playing with bubbles.

The plug hole in the bath. She finds it hilarious when I take the plug out of the hole then sits on the hole and slowly lets the water out. Or she will get the facecloth and plug the hole up or anything that is in stop the water from going out of the bath so she doesn't have to get out of her bath.

Empty bottles or anything she can drink out of!

I get in the bath too, we sing nursery rhymes, he gurgles and grins as he looks after me. One of our favourite things to do together.

Her Dora bath doll. Its her routine now, I wash her hair, her body then brush her teeth and she does this same routine with her Dora.. Very cute!

I have given my 5 kids everything from expensive bath toys to rubber duckies and I have found that their most favourite toys are empty baby shampoo bottles and some cups. My toddler has so much fun just filling and squirting the water from bottle to cup over and over original.gif A good lesson in action and reaction happening there also!

Paintbrushes - they can paint as long as they want and make as much mess as they like.

Plastic containers (yoghurt pots, plastic bottles) - they love filling, pouring and making cups of tea.  Best of all when the container is looking dirty I can just put it in the recycle bin.

A couple of jugs of different sizes to pour water out of and empty squirt bottles, paint brushes, plastic animals, cars, dolls and aeoroplanes are the bath time play toys of choice here at the moment. We store them in a mesh bag to drain.
