Children love to play in the water. We all know how hard it is to drag them out of the bathtub!! Why not bring the bath toys out of the tub and into a bin on the table? Just fill up a tupperware bin with warm water. Blue or green food colouring and bubbles are a nice touch. Add some plastic ducks or frogs and watch them play.
It is a good idea to put towels down on the table first and even on the floor to collect the spill. Use raincoats, green garbage bags or paint smocks to protect clothes from getting wet.
