FlannelAfter a Bath
After a bath, I try, try, try,
To wipe myself ’till I’m dry, dry, dry.
Hands to wipe, and fingers and toes,
And two wet legs and a shiny nose.
Just think, how much less I’d take,
If I were a dog, and could shake, shake, shake!

Action RhymeBubble Bath
Bubbly, bubbly bubble bath (wiggle all ten fingers)
Filled to the top, (raise fingers overhead)
Listen to the bubbly bubbles, (cup hand to ear)
Pop! Pop! Pop! (clap three times)

Sorting Activity“Would we use this in the tub?”
Have two boxes, clearly labeled YES and NO. In an opaque bag, have 6-8 items that we would and would not use in the tub (for ex: boot, soap, washcloth, bath sponge, Elmer’s glue, hammer, spatula, rubber duckie).
Group chants “Rub a dub, DUB dub, Rub a dub DUB.” 
Leader asks “Would we use THIS in the tub?”
If the answer is no, ask what the item is and what we would use it for.
