Bath Bomb Recipe for Kids
Make bath bombs for your kid's next tub time. (bath image by Mat Hayward from

Many parents face a difficult battle almost every night of the week: getting their dirty, sticky kid into the bathtub. One way to make bath time more enjoyable is to drop a bath bomb into the tub. These are small balls that begin to spin and fizz when they come in contact with water. They can be made at home with a few simple ingredients.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • Citric acid
  • Cornflour
  • Baking soda
  • Medium bowls
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp fragrance oil
  • 4 drops food colouring
  • Small bowls
  • Spoon
  • Waxed paper
  • Paper baking cups
  • Airtight containers

  1. 1

    Place the citric acid, cornflour and baking soda into a bowl. Mix the ingredients together well.

  2. 2

    Pour the coconut oil, fragrance oil and food colouring into a separate glass bowl.

  3. 3

    Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring the mixture as you pour.

  4. 4

    Spoon out the mixture and form it into approximately 1-in.-round balls. Place them onto a sheet of waxed paper and allow them to dry for three hours.

  5. 5

    Place each ball into a separate paper baking cup. Allow the bath bombs to dry completely for 24 hours.

Tips and warnings

  • Store bombs in an airtight container.
  • Drop one to three bombs into a warm bath.
  • Use grapeseed or almond oil in place of coconut oil for a variation on the recipe.
