Toddler Cubes for Bathtime {Tuesday Tip}

The original inspiration for this idea was from Pinterest… {Link to link on Pinterest} and used regular ice cube trays.

Well, since I didn’t have any extra ice cube trays I could use for this, I used the Doggie Ice Cube containers to create these fun bath time ‘toys’.

Here they are before freezing.  I added 2~3 drops of food coloring to the container, and then added the water.  Make sure to leave room for expansion as they freeze.


Once they are frozen, and you are heading to the bath… well when the children are heading for the bath {this might not be as fun to play with in your bath, LOL}, just run hot/warm water on the bottom of the plastic and the ‘cubes’ will pop right out.  They don’t last very long in warm bathwater before the ‘dissappear’. 

Ms. E enjoyed playing with them just as much as Ms. V during bath time.  Proving that these are a fun addition to bath time for both the toddler crowd and the baby crowd.  Watching them play with these reminded me of playing with slippery soap.  The food coloring did tint the water, but neither child was ‘tinted’ once they were done with bath time and dried off.

These are a definitely a win/win, no~cost, fun addition to bath time around my house!
