International Bath Day on June 14th is just another occasion to celebrate with great discoveries in the bathtub. I'm a HUGE fan of battery operated bath toys that that are educational and promote learning and discovering in the tub. On International Bath Day I am always thrilled that kids all over the world enjoy a good bath, great bath toys and the ability to discover really cool things…!

International Bath Day

International Bath Day occurring this month is a great time to celebrate bath time with cool educational bath toys.
I always write about the best baby bath toys out there with no special international day needed but International Bath Day takes place every year on June 14th is a great reminder that the bath is the IDEAL place for little scientists to learn, explore and discover.The day's roots originate from a homage to Archimedes who was an Ancient Greek mathematician, physicist & inventor. He discovered, while taking a bath, that an object’s volume could be accurately measured by being submerged in water! Unable to contain his excitement, Archimedes leapt out of the bathtub and yelling "Eureka, Eureka!" as he ran through the streets of Syracuse (Ancient Greece).
Obviously Archimedes' exact date of birth is unknown because we are talking about more than 2050 years ago, but the day chosen to commemorate International Bath Day is the day that is believed he leapt out of the bath tub shouting, "Eureka!  Eureka!". Legend has it that it was exactly one week before summer began ( June 14th)! How cool is that?!
I plan to celebrate during this whole month with all the best bath toys that promote learning  basic physical  properties such as empty/full, float/sink, heavy/light, and cause and effect all while having pure fun in the tub!
