Bath Tub Crafts- DIY Monsters

With all the splishing and splashing during the hot days of summer, be it the town pool for swimming lessons, the slip and slide in the backyard, or running through the sprinkler, my children seem to be “watered out” by evening.

Which is a problem because they DO need a bath and my daughter’s blond hair needs a good shampoo with Ultraswim to keep the green away.

Here’s an easy craft you can make on the fly that will give them some thing creative to do in the tub while you scrub ‘em down. I made them in the bathroom while the tub was filling up! (the night before Sydney was born!)

All you need are some foam sheets (mine are from the Dollar Tree, where else???) and a pair of scissors!

Just cut random shapes- circles, squares, triangles, zig zags- whatever you want! Don’t worry about it being perfect, this is real life, not a pinterest photo shoot! ***I did the cutting of shapes , not the kids***

When wet, the foam sheets will stick to your shower/ tub walls. Perfect for making monsters!

“Here’s some eyes for your pink pizza monster, sis!”

Ahhh… a bath battle won. Wooo!
