What Is the Finest Method to Make Bath Bombs for Kids?

This will not only offer a long-lasting, robust package for your bath bombs, but it will also give them a very professional appearanc

Are you looking for a fun activity to take your kids away from their devices and encourage them to be more creative? You may do it with your kids, which will keep them occupied for a few hours and allow you to treat yourself with a nice bath utilizing your creations at the end of the day!

We’ve come up with some entertaining and straightforward bath bomb recipes for you to test. From the most basic bath bomb to a geode bath bomb, if you’re feeling crafty, there’s something for everyone.

Making a Standard Bath Bomb

To prepare these effervescent treats, you’ll only need a few essential ingredients: Baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, Epsom salt, food/soap coloring (if desired), essential oils (if desired), fragrance (if desired), and water.

Putting the Dry Ingredients Together 

Add the baking soda, cornstarch, citric acid, and Epsom salt to a large mixing basin, stirring well after each addition. Remember that the baking soda is used in a 2:1 ratio with the rest of the dry ingredients for straightforward calculations. 

Twelve cups of Epsom salt, cornstarch, and citric acid are required for every cup of baking soda. To allow the chemicals to react correctly in the bath, grind your mixture thoroughly to ensure no lumps and that all of the ingredients are evenly finely dispersed.

Incorporating the Wet Ingredients 

Next, combine the water, mineral oil, food coloring, and fragrance in a separate cup. You’ll need roughly a tablespoon of water, a tablespoon of mineral oil, a teaspoon of incense, and food coloring if necessary to make one cup of baking soda. The amount of water used will vary depending on the temperature, humidity, and other factors. 

Be very cautious when counting the wet elements to the dry mix because doing so all at once can cause a reaction between the baking soda and citric acid, causing your bath bomb mixture to fizz before it has a chance to develop!

To avoid this, whisk a little piece of the mixture vigorously. Repeat until you get a wet-sand-like material that sticks together when you clump it together in your hands.

Molding the Bath bomb

This stage necessitates considerable upper-body strength and is the ideal excuse for a quick workout. You’ll need spherical bath bomb molds, but you can use empty Easter eggs or old Christmas ornaments instead if you don’t have any on hand. 

Feel free to use some of the various fun-shaped baking molds. Just be careful not to use anything with a lot of extra detail since this could result in a cracked bath bomb. 

Scoop up as much mixture as you can with the two pieces of your mold in each hand. Then push them together quickly, letting the surplus mixture flow out while firmly squeezing the rest.

Make sure to press down firmly, and if it doesn’t seem compact, remove one side of the mold, add additional mixture, and crush it into the existing ball.

Let it dry!

Method 1

Remove the mold from your bath bomb and lay it on the tray to dry for 48 hours. We recommend lining an empty container or tray with plastic wrap, silicone mat, or wax paper for this (this will catch any fallout and make it easier to discard). If you’re low on molds, this method is beneficial.

Method 2

If you have different molds, take one half, lay it on the tray (most molds stand up on their own), and let the bath bomb dry on that side for an hour. After that, replace half of the mold and repeat the process on the other side. After that, take a plastic wrap or a clear plastic bag, place the bath bomb inside, and melt the plastic into the surface with a heat gun (a hairdryer works just as well). This will not only offer a long-lasting, robust package for your bath bombs, but it will also give them a very professional appearance.
