When the rubber duck finally gets a whiff of fresh air and amicable dolphins are sighted beside fearsome crocodiles in the swimming pool, then everything is ready: another outdoor swimming pool season has started! Every year children can hardly wait until the temperatures finally start going up and they can get into the wading pool or outdoor swimming pool for the first time. But even indoors at home in the bathroom, there is nothing better for many children than sitting in the bathtub. Splashing, spraying, and splattering are great fun ... and are part of children’s play. So grab some empty bottles and cups, bath animals, squirting characters, and other water toys and get started. It’s often so much fun that it’s not easy to get the little mermaids and bathtub pirates out of the water again.
But there are also grumpy little water people. Stepping in puddles with rubble boots is still okay, but dunking and especially having their hair washed is a horror show for them. Amusing playthings can help relieve the anxiety and provide relaxation and fun in the bathtub.
