This week, we are learning about different rooms inside a home. One of the rooms we learned about is…. the bathroom! We did some fun activities that revolved around things you do in the bathroom.
We talked about things you do in the bathroom. My girls love talking baths and washing their hands because they love soap. We were all very excited to see that two of the activities from Mother Goose Time were “washing your hands” and “making soap bubbles”.
First, we practiced washing our hands. We followed the steps in the given poster for how we should do it. It was a little eye opening as a mom to see how my children wash their hands. My 2 year old just puts her hands under the water for 2 seconds and says, “All done!” My 5 year old uses way too much soap and takes 5 minutes to wash her hands. It was good to take some time to teach my girls how to wash their hands properly.
Next, we made bubbles! I mixed soap, water, and corn syrup together and let my girls play with the mixture. They had a lot of fun making huge bubbles. By the end of the activity, they were covered in soap and bubbles. There were lots of smiles and giggles.
The last activity we did was make patterns with items from the bathroom. It’s a little difficult to see in the picture, but a 2 year old vs. a 5 year old making a pattern is quite different. The older one made an ABCD pattern, while the younger one just said what the item was as she put it down. I tried to help her, but she got mad at me. So, I just let her do her own thing.
We are having a lot of fun this month learning about homes. We can’t wait to do more!
