Christmas bath fun. Christmas hats, bath toys and big smiles. What more could you ask for? This was a favourite activity from last year and they were keen to do it again and involve their baby brother.


  • Bubbly bath
  • Christmas hats
  • Christmas bath toys
  • Red and green balls


Step 1: Collect all the green and red balls. They love separating the colours out!

Step 2: Run a bubbly bath and put all the toys in.

Step 3: Pick a festive hat. They always have fun making beards out of bubbles.

They invented a game where, “The red guys are naughty and are trying to get the green guys. The green guys want to be friends so they are going to use magic and turn them into good guys.”

DfES Early Learning Goals (2017)

Communication and language

ELG 01 – Listening and attention:

Children give their attention to what others say and respond appropriately, while engaged in another activity.

ELG 03 – Speaking:

Children use past, present and future forms accurately when talking about events that have happened or are to happen in the future. They develop their own narratives and explanations by connecting ideas or events.

Personal, social and emotional development

ELG 08 – Making relationships:

Children play co-operatively, taking turns with others. They take account of one another’s ideas about how to organise their activity. They show sensitivity to others’ needs and feelings, and form positive relationships with adults and other children.
