Parents should enhance bath-time learning with a homemade rainmaker. A baby will delight in the sparkling water crystals as they magically fall from this simple rainmaker. She will team about texture by feeling the water as it sprinkles over her hands and about observing as she watches the streams closely. Using a large sewing needle, create an interesting pattern of holes around the bottom of the empty plastic milk container. The more creative the arrangement is, the prettier the water streams will be.
