How To Make Easy Easter Egg Bath Bombs.
If you think your kids might be getting more than enough chocolate over the Easter break, giving them a bag full of Easter egg bath bombs is a great alternative. Or you could make them together for a fun long weekend activity.
They’re incredibly easy to make and you can buy those plastic Easter egg containers to make sure the shape is perfectly 'egg-shaped'!
These Easter egg bath bombs are a fun way to celebrate Easter; they also make great gifts and, let’s face it, you don’t have to be a kid to enjoy a bath bomb! This recipe is super easy and uses a mixture of household items such as bicarbonate soda and citric acid which sets off that fun ‘fizz’ in the bathtub.
Easy Easter Egg Bath Bombs Recipe:
Ingredients you will need:
- Plastic Easter egg moulds
- 2 cups bicarbonate soda
- 1 cup citric acid powder
- 1/4 cup coconut or almond oil (you can also use vegetable oil)
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 1/2 cup Epsom salts
- 1 tbsp water
- 1 tbsp of your favourite essential oils (you could use orange & lavender)
- Food colouring
- Glitter (optional)
- Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
- Mix the coconut oil and essential oils together in a separate small bowl. Tip - we found using soft coconut oil much easier to work with.
- Add the oil mixture to the dry ingredients and mix together. Note - the mixture should be a dry crumbly texture, there is no need to add more liquid.
- Divide into 4-5 bowls (depending on how many colours you are making) and cover them with cling wrap – this is essential as the mixture can get dry quickly.
- Next, add 6-10 drops of colouring and mix – you might find it’s easier to mix with your hands – plus if you have ‘little helpers’ they’d find this part fun to do with you!
- Then get your plastic egg moulds, add glitter if you want to and then use alternate layers of the coloured mixture in the mould before gently pressing the mixture in.
- Once you’ve added a final layer of your chosen colour, press the mould together and leave the mixture in there for about an hour.
- Remove the eggs from the mould and place on paper towels and leave for a couple of hours to dry.
Once dry, run a bath and watch your colourful DIY Easter egg bath bombs fizz away.
Enjoy and Happy Easter!
