Grayson loves to be outdoors. When he wakes up in the morning and from his nap, he always points to his curtains and yells for me to let the sun in. If you put socks on him, or even mention going “bye bye”, he stops dead in his tracks and runs for the door. With the temperature heating up, I want to be able to take him outside while also keeping him cool. We picked a water table up for him last Summer, and he wasn’t really into it. So, I decided to add things that he enjoys to it: his favorite bath toys. I don’t know why I never thought of this before!
This post was made in collaboration with Nuby. In exchange for product I provide my honest review. All opinions and statements are personally my own.
The bath toys that we chose were: Nuby 5 pcs Splish Splash Stacking Bath Cups (available at: Amazon, Babies R’ Us, and Walmart), Nuby 2pk Tub Tugs Floating Bath Boats (available at Amazon), and Nuby Splash N Catch Bath Net– The set includes 1 net and 4 connecting animals. (available online at Babies R’ Us and Amazon).
Grayson loves the Splish Splash Stacking Bath Cups because they have holes in the bottom which provide a “water fall” effect. I love them because they help with coordination and concentration (he’s a pro at stacking them correctly now). The Tub Tugs Floating Bath Boats are fun because they squirt water, and they’re great for pretend play. You can move them through the water, and make them “talk” with each other. The Splash N Catch Bath Net is another great one for coordination! Show your kids how to use the net to pick up the connecting animals (and whatever else they end up putting in there).
He had so much fun playing with his favorite bath toys outdoors. (And I was excited that he finally enjoyed his water table!) This is something that you could do with a kiddie pool, or even just with the hose/sprinkler, too! We ended up spraying him with the hose, and while we weren’t sure if he was going to like it, he was shouting “WEEEE” and running all over the yard.
Be sure to check out my Instagram, because I’m giving away one Splash N Catch Bath Net with the help of Nuby.
