Washing Babies

A beautiful warm sunny winters day in Brisbane, so I decided a bit of water play was in order. Finn has enjoyed this activity from a young age, and Evie loves playing with dolls.

I set up a tub with some warm water with a few drops of bubble bath solution. I gave them a selection of plastic 'babies' to wash, some sponges, towels to dry and a change of dolls clothes. 
It entertained the two of them washing, playing and chatting side by side. 

This activity helps promote gentleness, how to care for something, mirror adult activities, and help with fine motor skills (when dressing & undressing their dolls). Playing with water is also very soothing for children.
