This mom has come up with an ingenious way to get her kids to enjoy bath time: glow sticks to make a disco bath. The photo of said bath has gone viral on social media, and many other parents are praising her for coming up with such a unique and creative idea. The best part is that it’s affordable, so anyone can do it.
Getting your kids to enjoy bath time is a challenge. While there are those who look forward to it, kids generally don’t enjoy sitting still and being cleaned. From rubber ducks to bath time games, parents are willing to do almost anything to get their kid to get in the tub. Loving bath time is key to developing hygienic habits for the future.
This particular mom took the disco to the bathroom. She shared photos in the Facebook group “Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK” to show what can be done with 59p glow sticks. In the bubble bath, she added the orange and green glow sticks to give the illusion that the water is radiating colourful light. They are safe to use, as she made sure that they are non-toxic and non-flammable.
The post inspired other moms to try their own version of the disco bath. There were those who filled the tub with a yellow, ethereal glow, and others opted for more colours to make it appear as if they’re bathing in a rainbow. Even the bubbles seem like they’re glowing when they’re floating around. If this doesn’t get kids to get excited about bath time, then nothing will!
Many of the 2,000 users who liked the post even added how they wanted to do this for their own bath. Taking a bath becomes more than just a chore to get yourself clean; it is a relaxing ritual. In the bath, you can have time for yourself and escape from the world for a little bit. Adding glow sticks to the water will make it seem like you’ve entered another dimension: one of cleanliness, relaxation, and free from the stress of bathing your kids.
