Gentle sensory water shower for baby

– a fun bath time activity! And it’s cheap, quick and simple to set up as well.

Basically, get a small plastic milk carton/bottle. Carefully make some holes in the lid (I used a small skewer), and cut a hole towards the bottom of the bottle, like in the pictures below. The holes in the lid are obviously so that the water can sprinkle out, and the hole in the body of the bottle is so that you can fill it with water easily by dunking it in the bath water.

I used a nail file to smooth any rough edges. He probably chewed on it a bit as well so, again, safety first and make sure the lid is on tightly. Always supervise this project and be especially cautious around water

Then, carefully introduce the sprinkled water to baby. We did this in the bath, but I suppose you could use it elsewhere if you don’t mind the water splashing about the place. Maybe in the garden on a hot day?

 

Here’s the Little Lovely enjoying the showery water sensation:

What’s this?

 

 

He was quite curious about the bottle and enjoyed the sensation of the water showering on his hands, tummy and hair.

You can’t tell very well, but LL is actually lying on a special baby seat in the picture below, and enjoying the water being sprinkled on his tummy and chest.
