June 14 is International Bath Day and is the perfect time to focus on the importance bath play has on a child’s social, emotional and cognitive development during the ages of birth to three. Parents are their child’s first and best teachers and every interaction a parent has with their baby is a new learning opportunity especially in the bath.

 The bathtub serves as a classroom for your baby because they’re observing and exploring why bubbles pop when they touch them or how water splashes up when they move around. International Bath Day is the perfect day to celebrate these amazing “Aha!” discoveries of your little explorer. The following bath toys help with those discoveries and further build your child’s development with you by their side! #InternationalBathDay
