How to do: Bathing Play

Discover new ways to make bathtime even more fun.

Babies 0-6 months

1. Sing simple songs to baby as you bath them - like "this is the way to wash your face."

2. Turn empty bottles into submarines, boats and even rocket ships. Wheeee!

3. Take a bath with baby. Babies love it when one of you shres the bath with them.

4. Play Eskimo bubbles. Dab a few bubbles on baby’s nose – and gently pop them with your own!

Babies 6-15 months

1. Use wooden spoons, plastic containers, etc for a fun music-making session.

2. Blow bubbles - simply drop a little JOHNSON’S® Baby Shampoo on your hands and then form a ring with thumbs and forefingers - and blow giant bubbles!

3. Swimming lessons. With one hand underneath them, gently swish baby up and down the bath - let's see those legs kicking!

4. Bubble beard - give yourself a beard made out of bubbles, and see the chuckles you'll get.

Baby 15 months+

1. Naming of parts - put bubbles on different parts of baby's body, and encourage him to say their names - nose, arm, hand - you can repeat as you dry them afterwards too.

2. Bubble spelling - spell out letters in bubbles on baby's tummy - they'll love it, and they'll start learning too.

3. Spike up their hair with shampoo, and show them the results in the mirror - what a hoot!

4. Kick start - pop a little ball in the bath with them, and encourage baby to kick it around.
