How do you wash a toddler's hair with their arm in a cast??

DD (2 next week) fell off a slide ladder yesterday (she was being "helped" by other children and we think she said "NO!" and tried to do it alone)...Result - fractured arm and a big plaster

Now I have the problem though that she needed a bath before it happened, and obviously will be in need of hair washing over the next 4 weeks... how is the best way to go about doing it?

put it in a bin bag and tape the end together with parcel tape - honestly then she can have a bath (I think you can buy a professional version of that)

will she lean over bath so you can wash her hair with a jug / shower attachment

wipe her down with a flannel and soapy water - make it a game [girn]
