Skate the pool

Little skateboarder figures with spikes in the bottom of the feet to stick in to a bar of soap.

Then try to pull of 360's and mctwists with your Soapboarder in the wet tub.

You would need the slomo cam to really capture their wild moves. Good, good stuff!

We manufactured small skateboards with Corgi Car wheels and real grip tape and cardboard and had a go in the empty tub.
This idea is much better and can be implemented while showering.

Just to make it that more difficult, make it into a surfboarding version... biologically friendly, of course!

Birthday cake figures often come with spikes - perhaps you could find a skateboarding dude on a cake decorating supply site. (Tho' I couldn't in a quick search just now.)

For gnomethang, you can buy mini-skateboards at skateboading shops (as keyrings or on their own).

Didn't find any 20 years ago! - we had to make our own entertainment in them days.

A two-piece bath pack, figurine and board, both made from decorated soap would be a snap to put together and would thrill most kids for a whole bath. + For that alone.

Apparently, the new version of Monopoly has a skateboard as one of the counters.

I did this in the tub as a kid. You can take a regular action figure and cram its feet in, cant you? +
