My boys love playing in the bathtub…dumping and filling cups of water. As I was trying to find something in our cabinets to put some leftovers in a couple days ago, an idea came to me of how to create a new bathtub toy using old takeout containers! With rain showers and thunderstorms on the horizon, I figured this would be a fun and timely activity.
Here’s what you’ll need: a nail, a plastic container that is deep enough to hold water, and a hammer (as you can see, I tried using a meat tenderizer because I was too lazy to go find our hammer). Or you can use a drill.
|Place the nail onto the plastic container and hammer until it goes through the container. I would then suggest wiggling it around to make the hole a tad bigger.|
|Prince Charming saw what I was doing and just knew there was a better way…using power tools, of course!|
|He came to my rescue and made several holes in about a minute.|
|Fill and let your child enjoy “making rain”!!!|
