Get ready for a super fun DIY Project which is Easter Egg Bath Bombs! You know, those fun little balls you throw into the tub that start to fizz and make your water smell heavenly. Yes, you can make them yourself.
Step 1: In a large bowl, combine the Epsom salt, cornstarch, baking soda and citric acid. Stir the ingredients together using a whisk. In a separate small bowl, mix together your wet ingredients: water, fragrance/essential oil,and food coloring. Notice I used Galactic Grape. It smells AWESOME.
Step 2: Pour your wet ingredients into the bowl with your dry ingredients and whisk together. The mixture will start to clump a little. Use your fingers to ball up a bit of the mixture to see if it is starting to stick together a bit. If not, you can add a little more water, but be careful. ONLY add a very little at a time or you will ruin the entire mixture. Take one of your eggs and put a little of the confetti sprinkles in one side or both. Then start tightly packing the bath bomb powder into both sides of the egg. Make sure there aren’t any air pockets – just a small hole is enough to make your bath bomb crumble so really pack the mixture in tightly. This is also the step where you could place a very small toy inside the egg if you would like.
Step 3: Then push the sides together and let the egg sit on a towel covered with waxed paper for at least 15 minutes.
Step 4: After 15 minutes carefully pry open the egg to see if the mixture has formed to the mold. If it has, it will look like this. The eggs need to dry completely overnight before you try and use them or package them up as gifts.
These would be great gifts for friends and family and would be so much fun to put in the kids’ Easter baskets.
