Everyday Learning ~ 20 months

Everyday is full of many little learning adventures. These are often mundane simple things in our eye, but a new and exciting adventure for a tot. Today I let JJ choose his bath water color.


He chose yellow. I put a few drops in the bath and he loved the color. He even liked it so much that he said “YEH” a few times.  Which is an amazing thing for a non-verbal. I would like to believe that he really was saying yellow.  You can judge for yourselves

To enhance JJ’s bath time fun we also did a little experiment first. We took a bar of Ivory soap and nuked it in the microwave for 90seconds to watch it expand. In my mind I thought that the bar would be a fun puffy sensory experience. Not so much. It just felt like rubber and not very appealing. I decided to add it to JJ’s yellow bath water anyways. Soap is soap after all. JJ didn’t like it much either. He spent more time pushing it to the end of the tub so that it wouldn't touch him rather than enjoying a sensory experience.
