I had seen Cussons Mum & Me Little Explorers Funky Fizz Bath Crackles (affiliate link) in the supermarket and decided to give them a go in the Tuff Spot. As today’s letter, as part of our Tuff Spot A-Z Challenge, is the letter W it gave us the perfect opportunity for a W is for Water Crackles Tuff Spot.
The Funky Fizz Bath Crackles promised to “pop and bang” once they were added to water. They also “magically change the colour of the bath water as they dissolve.” We wanted to put them to the test!
I filled our blue Tuff Spot with warm water and added a variety of bath toys, scoops, plastic cups and containers. I then gave Adam the packet so he could explore it himself. The Funky Fizz Bath Crackles did start to pop and bang immediately. As our water was not very deep in the Tuff Spot I believe the Crackles sounded louder. Adam enjoyed swishing the water around to make the Crackles pop.
Adam throuoghly enjoyed attempting to get all of the Crackles out of the packet and explored different ways to make the Crackles make a noise. He discovered that putting a funnel over the Crackles made them louder. An easy sensory play activity!
It wasn’t long before Adam decided his dinosaurs wanted to stomp in the crackling water. Unfortunately the packet does not last long. The packet only turned the water a slight different colour and this may not be noticeable in a bath tub.
Note to self: Getting water out of a Tuff Spot when said Tuff Spot is inside is tricky. I have been used to playing with water in the Tuff Spot outside and it wasn’t until after the activity I realised I couldn’t tip the water out onto the grass. It was a painstaking slow process to empty the water cup by cup although Adam thought it was a fantastic activity. From now on I shall only set up water Tuff Spot activities outside!
