The kids had a great time making bath bombs with Gram and Pop Pop a few weeks ago. With some extra time on our Saturday the kids and I are again making more bath bombs. But this time the kids wanted to make Halloween ones, colored with orange, green, and black.
The ingredients aren't too difficult to pull together.
1/2 cup of Baking Soda
1/4 cup of Citric Acid
1/4 cup of Epsom Salt
1/4 cup of Corn Starch
3 Tbs of oil
1 Tbs of fragrant oil
Adding drops of food coloring to the oil, Alli suddenly yelled out, Hidden Mickey! I see it Alli!
Ian took a look and said Pluto Paw! I like how you think buddy. I see that too.
Unfortunately there was no orange food coloring. Good thing the kids know how to mix colors and get orange from the red and yellow.
The colors look great kids! Very Halloweeny.
Sweet! After mixing everything together I think it's important to let the mixture sit for a little bit. Last time everything was still expanding after they got squished together. They expanded this time too, but I kept trying to squish everything back down. Theresa had a good idea of using a muffin tin next time. Something else we can try!
Perhaps some Christmas bath bombs next time?
