Fun way to educate your toddler in the bathtub

If you have those foam letters and numbers, they easily stick to the wall near the bathtub. Grab 3-4 letters and 3-4 numbers only. For 1 week each time you bathe your toddler, hand him these same letters and numbers and constantly tell him/her the meaning of the numbers or the sounds of the letters so that he/she will know the name, sound, and amount of that particular shape. As he/she places the shapes on the wall, you can say, "S, S, for example." It is a great time to extend your quality time to educate your little one.

What a great tip.When both of my kids were young we would count the cars on the train as it went by as we could see the train from our patio door.Also we would pick out one color of car & count only cars of that color.
