Bath time becomes even more entertaining with an easy-to-make, no-cost toy for the tub.

Forget expensive bath toys! Here’s how to make an empty plastic water bottle your baby’s toy of choice. Punch several holes in the bottle, sides and bottom. (The bottle should have no lid.) Next, plunge it into a full bath, and hand it to your child as the water begins to sprinkle out.

While this toy will afford you plenty of time to scrub your child from head to toe, it may distract her so well that you won’t be able to get her out of the tub when you’re finished!
