Tightwad Tuesday

Canadagirl's tightwad post about colored baths made me think of my tightwad tip for this week. Foam bath stickies. All you need is craft foam. You know, the cheap stuff from Walmart. I cut out all sorts of shapes and even traced animal outlines. The little girls stick them to the sides of the tub and have great fun. We do baths almost as much for diversion as for hygiene in this house. (You know, if you've got a crab, stick it in water.) The only limit is your imagination.

This was a GREAT addition to having a colour bath ! I wish I knew about this when my boys where younger. [0= I remember buying some bathtub stickies and it most likely cost more than this great TWT tip.

I hope you visit often at TWT.

Blessings in Him<><

I used your idea of bathing as entertainment with great success the other day. As it happened, my 5yo had had a poop accident which he attempted to clean up himself, leaving a big mess in the bathroom. The bathing gave me an opportunity to sterilize the bathroom while the children were safely occupied.
