Dinosaur Bath Bombs
Bath time is never really a relaxing time when it involves kids is it? We all know more water ends up outside of the tub than inside. 🙂 These dinosaur bath bombs are such a fun activity for the kids to make and then watch fizz while they get all cleaned up. These bath bombs are colored with skin safe food coloring and can have a touch of essential oils for scent, lavender is a great scent! These work great in just a large bowl of warm water on your counter or outside for a fun activity as well.
You only need a few simple ingredients to make these bath bombs and most everything can be found at your local grocery store. Each batch of bath bomb mixture makes about 6 bath bombs depending on the size mold you use.
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 3 TBSP Epsom salt
- 3 teaspoons coconut oil, melted state
- water, in spray bottle
- drops of essential oil, optional
- food coloring
- bath bomb molds
How to make Dinosaur Bath Bombs & VIDEO
- Whisk together baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch and epsom salt.
- Pour in coconut oil and essential oils, if using. Mix until combined.
- Carefully spray water into mixture until damp. You don’t want the mixture to be overly wet, but like sand. If you squeeze it in your hand it will still hold it’s shape.
- At this point separate mixture into 2 -3 bowls and add desired coloring, mix until combined.
- Overfill one of your bath molds. Partially fill your second bath bomb mold and place a dinosaur inside. Cover dinosaur with more bath bomb mixture until overfilled.
- Carefully press both bath bomb molds together and let sit for a few minutes.
- Carefully remove mold and place your bath bomb on a parchment covered baking sheet and allow to dry a few hours until dry.
