I’d been looking for new bath toys for my son and had a hard time finding things that I liked. I was about to buy some big fizzing balls as a last resort when I spotted this Elmo bottle of tablets that color the bath water. I bought it to try it out.
I like the results.
Color The Water
There are 100 tablets in the container, that’s enough for 100 baths, which works for me. I like things that last. You can combine colors to make new colors (yellow+blue=green water) which can be turned into a lesson about how colors work together. You can also talk about how things dissolve as you watch the little tablet slowly dissolve into the bath, puffs of pink smoke-like color slowly penetrating the water.
I’ve added a photo of what the water looks like once the tablet dissolves. I have to admit that I used yellow the first day and waited to take a new photo because of what the yellow water looked like. I wanted to spare you those thoughts. Here’s the red (looks pinkish) with some added bubble bath.
Definitely makes the bath a little more fun.
I bought these at Babies R Us.
