Super Easy Bath Fizzies
Impressive Results Without An Impressive Mess
The Results Were Spa-tacular.
The girls were so excited to make their own bath fizzies. We were excited, too. This activity gives you a great opportunity totally to kids about how science can be fun and easy. It also gives you a chance to teach how important it is to follow directions. As you will see in the recipe, if you pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients too quickly, you can cause a chemical reaction. The kids had a blast—and they were really proud of their work. We hope you enjoy this activity as much as we did!
We’d love to see your finished products—here’s what we used to make ours:
Things you’ll need:
- 1 cup of baking soda
- 1/2 cup of corstarch
- 1/2 cup of citric acid
- 1/2 cup of Epsom salts
- 3/4 tsp. water
- 2 1/2 melted coconut oil
- 10 drops of essential oil—(we loved sweet orange)
- bath bomb molds (we used ones from The Bath Company that we ordered on Amazon)
- you can use food coloring, but we opted to skip it and keep them a gorgeous ivory color that works well with all bath color scheme.
Are you ready? Let's do this!
- In a medium bowl, mix together wet ingredients using a whisk and set aside.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients.
- Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients very slowly. If you pour it too fast it will cause a reaction with the citric acid.
- Slowly stir—it should feel like wet sand.
- Fill each 1/2 mold until it overflows—don’t be shy.
- Press each half together and let it sit in the mold for 2 minutes.
- Lightly tap the mold and pull apart.
- Let your fizzies air dry for 24 hours—and they will be ready to go!
