Summer Fun with the Kids: Making Bath Bombs!
|Summertime. What a fun time to hang out with friends and family at the pool, beach, park or backyard! I really enjoy the sunshine and fun family activities that come with the summer season. BBQ parties, hiking, swimming, fishing, or even just sitting on the porch; it is nice to be able to get out and enjoy ourselves.
This summer I want to show you how you can expand your summer amusement with some fun, simple and easy to do projects with your friends and kids. Today I am going to show you how to create some Bath Bombs that the kids will surely enjoy the next time they take a bath. We all know how dirty they can get, so anything that we can to do to get them in the bathtub and clean is best for all. At the end of the day, we get some great bonding time as well as some clean kids! What could be better?!
Collect Needed Materials:
Recipe: (Makes 6 pounds, fills 20-22 Multi-Cube Clamshells)
Weigh dry materials into a bag and mix well. If using the Multi-Cube Clamshell, weigh 4.4 ounces into a small bag. Add up to 1/2 mL fragrance oil and mix well, making sure all the clumps have been broken up. Spritz plain water and colored water over the dry powder once or twice and then mix thoroughly. Alternate spritzes of colored water and plain water until the mixture is the texture of coarse corn meal. Be careful to not over spray or your bombs may start fizzing, so spray once or twice and mix thoroughly, then repeat if necessary. Compress finished product into Multi-Cube Clamshell or Mold of your choice and let dry thoroughly about 6-12 hours.
Now your kids will love it when you send them off to take a bath. Since we used the Multi-Cube Clamshell, simply break off a cube or two into your next bath and let the fizzing begin!
