Use your child’s time in the tub to talk about the weather. Sprinkle water on his/her arms and talk about rain. Let him/her take a turn sprinkling rain on your arms. When you’re draining the tub, show him/her how the water looks like a tornado. Take turns opening and closing the drain to let the water swirl around.
Having conversations helps to build children’s brains—your child is learning new words, and learning about cause and effect when he/she sees the water go down the drain.
