It’s Springtime! Or so the calendar led us to believe but Mother Nature has a different idea and snow continues to fall and school continues to be canceled. What is a mommy to do when the weather won’t cooperate and the little ones begin to get restless?

For bubble bath fun, OUTSIDE of the tub! HABA’s game Bubble Bath Bunny needs help finding his toys hidden in the soapy suds. Using the box as your bathtub, players roll a die hoping to match the color or symbol with tiles spread across the water. A fun way to bring bath time to the table for parents and toddlers to improve memory, matching, and fine motor skills.
I homeschool my children, which include a 4-year-old and a 10-year-old. I particularly looked forward to this for my 4-year-old. While this isn't his first game, we wanted to give him the opportunity to have a game where he could have a chance to win, but also to help with his thinking and motor skills. This game was great for that. While it is very simple, I have to admit, it is definitely a perfect "starter" game to introduce the little ones to game playing. Immediately upon opening the game, I noticed the high quality of the materials used for the game. I love that the dice is a bit larger than standard dice to make it easier to handle and hold for little hands. It's also smooth and easy for the child to match the pictures. Overall, my son really enjoyed this game and actually being able to win some games during family game night! For me, I love that he's learning and doesn't even realize it!
SoapSox Disney line allows for endless play in and out of the tub. SoapSox is a collection of unique, soft, and colorful characters that make bathing fun for kids and easier for parents. Soap is placed into the mouth of most SoapSox and rests in the character's belly. Made using a soft terrycloth exterior and an anti-microbial sponge interior, when filled with soap and water can be worked into a lather for a fun bath time experience. Simply add soap, water, and scrub! Characters: Nemo, Ariel, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Flounder, and Squirt.
I received a couple of these little guys and my 4-year-old son and my 10-year-old daughter absolutely love them! Basically, it's a plush animal that is safe for the bathtub. The mouth opens, allowing you to put a bar of soap in the mouth that you can then use to wash your child. Jace thought this was absolutely hilarious and 'silly' and enjoyed being washed by it! It's a great way to make the washing up part more fun; especially for children who may not enjoy baths as much. The Soapsox is high-quality and well made. The details are great and it's definitely safe for young children as there are no loose or small parts attached to it. Did I mention they're cute?!? The fact the mouth holds a bar of soap is just an added bonus!
