Use Tattoos as A Fun Bathtime Activity

The tattoos will stick to the tub, the walls, and of course your child! This is a great idea if you have fussy kids who hate tubby time. Tell them that if they get in the bath they can tattoo themselves and the tub! This special treat is sure to get your child in the tub to scrub-a-dub-dub in no time!
