With Valentine’s Day and Easter coming up, it’s time to start gathering some creative kids' craft ideas. These easy DIY bath bombs will make for a great gift from your child to someone they love.
What you will need:
- 1 cup of baking soda
- ½ cup of citric acid (available in your local pharmacy)
- ½ cup of Epsom salts (available in your local pharmacy)
- 1 teaspoon of water
- 3 teaspoons of olive oil
- A few drops of food colouring
- 2 bowls
- Shape moulds
- Essentail oils, glitter or dried flowers to decorate
What to do:
- Place all of your dry ingredients in one bowl, and mix; and do the very same in another bowl with the wet ingredients.
- Gradually pour small amounts of the wet mixture into the dry one, stirring as you go until all of the liquid has been absorbed.
- If you would like your bath bomb to be scented, add a few drops of an essential oil of your choice. Similarly, you can add dried flowers or a touch of glitter for decoration.
- Now, it’s time to add your bath bomb mixture to the moulds. All you need to do is scoop and pack the mixture into the mould using a spoon. You can either purchase ball moulds which will give you the round, spherical shape, or you can use a regular mould – this will mean, however, that your bath bomb is flat on one side.
- Once your bath bomb has been packed in, shaped and settled, gently remove it from the mould and leave to dry out for about two days.
- When you’re ready for some bath-time fun, simply drop your bomb into the water and watch as the water magically changes!
