Seriously Fun Bath Time Kids Activities
Let me tell you one of my parenting secret weapons… the BATH TUB. My kids rarely pass up a soak in the tub. A warm and soothing soapy bath is my go-to indoor kids activity to distract a cranky toddler or entertain a bored kiddo. My kids have a basket full of bath toys that they love to play with, but I decided to gather up a collection of fun kids activities to make bath time even more fun. Let’s check ’em out…

Make Bath Time Easier with Sterling Prevail Shower Doors!
Just think of how much time we spend leaning into the bathtub, washing baby faces and rinsing kids’ hair. Even with one child it feels like you’re giving baths all the time, but if you have more than once child (I have three!) it feels like it’s never ending. And if you have shower doors with that darn metal track right where your elbows rest it can be pretty uncomfortable, even painful, right? Well there’s finally a solution!
Sterling shower doors with ComforTrack technology make the kids’ bath time easier and more comfortable for you. The flexible ComforTrack that the door slides through bends under pressure making it comfortable on your elbows and knees while reaching in to bathe the kids. No more painful red marks on your elbows while you reach in to rinse your little one’s hair. And imagine how comfortable to prop your feet up on during your nice bubble bath, too! Sterling Prevail shower doors with the ComforTrack technology are available for both bath doors and shower doors. So no more hurt feet walking into the shower, either. Kinds of brilliant, right? (Why didn’t someone think of this of this sooner?)
