COSMIC BATH TIME!

Turn bath time into an experience that’s out of this world!

Sometimes bath time can feel like a chore, but with this easy trick, you can turn it into fun for you & your kids. And with the nights starting early, this is the perfect time of year for it!

You can create a tub full of fluffy, iridescent bubbles that glow in the dark. All you need is some bath bubbles & some glow sticks. It’s so simple but the results are magical, & guaranteed to result in abundant giggles & imaginative bath time play!

The effort on your part is minimal - pick up some glow sticks the next time you’re shopping (available year round at the Dollarama stores in Fredericton), when it’s bath time froth up your favourite liquid or solid bath bubbles, then activate your glow sticks, drop them in the tub, & sit back & enjoy the sounds of laughter & excitement.

Five minute setup, no extra cleanup, & loads of fun & laughter - stellar!
