The Best and Cheapest Bath Toys are all around you!

The "Bath" toys I am referring to are "EMPTY BOTTLES!" I am so serious, my son has all kinds of wonderful little bath toys, that he will play with for a day or so and then never look at again. Why? Because he is so obsessed with empty plastic bottles. Now your beautiful Bath and Body Works Bottles don't have to be tossed out! My son is two years old and as any mother knows, this age (as I am assuming other ages as well) loves to pour water. Well, don't need anything special for that. Think about it, they get to work on their pouring skills, hand eye coordination, sink/float, bubbles created by submerging the bottle. The Bath and Body Works ones are very clear and your child can see the water going into the bottle, and much much more that their little imaginations come up with.

Hey, they also make great bottles to "rinse" the shampoo out of your child's hair.

Notes: I of course, make sure the bottles are Super Clean! Also, I do NOT NOT NOT NOT, leave the caps with the bottles, just the empty bottle, no caps. Obvious reason but I'll say it: So your child won't put the cap in his/her mouth and become a choking hazard.

Just thought I would share this idea for anyone who may not already do so. I know, before my son, I hated throwing out (even to recycle) those pretty bottles. I guess it is the Art in me that I see them as pretty, but I am sure I am not the only one!

Happy Bath Time!

My son too uses empty bottle, mostly the old bath wash bottles from his head to toe body wash.
