Whale in the Bath

Time

  • 15 to 20 minutes

Materials

  • Empty plastic milk-gallon carton or juice jug
  • Scissors
  • Permanent marker

Directions

  1. This creature of the deep can make bath time more appealing and fun. Turn the jug on its side so that the handle is on top and draw a mouth shape on the base of the jug, extending partway up the sides.
  2. Cut along the line. Using the marker, outline the edge of the mouth and add eyes and a blowhole. The whale scoop is ready for swimming, scooping and sinking into the deepest parts of the bathtub.

Extensions

  • Add some small plastic fish for the whale to gobble up.
  • Let the whale clean up the bath toys when it is time to get out.
