As Easter is coming up we decided to make our very own Lush style bath bombs in the shape of Easter Eggs! With so many chocolate treats, the kids will also be happy playing in the bath with their homemade Easter Egg bath bombs. If you are making these bath bombs for Easter, then please allow 2 days advance for them to dry! You can also check out some other last minute Easter activities we love here.
What you will need:
– 1/2 cup of cornstarch (Maizena)
– 1/4 cup of sea salt
– 1 cup baking soda
– Food coloring (optional)
– 3/4 cup citric acid powder (We used lemon juice instead! 1 teaspoon citric acid = ¼ cup lemon juice (or 4 Tablespoons).)
– 3 tablespoons of coconut oil (for the sweet scent and also for softness)
– Glitter and/or a mini water resistant toy (optional)
– Plastic egg molds (or any cupcake type mold will do)
Mix the baking soda, cornstarch, coconut oil, and lemon juice together. Knead well with your hands. When you add the lemon juice or citric acid, the ingredients will start to fizz. This is normal. Once completely mixed, you can add food coloring, glitter, and a small toy in the middle for decoration. Spread a bit of coconut oil on the inside of each egg mold and then add your mixture to the egg molds or any other molds you may have.
Let your Easter egg soap bombs dry for 2 days to get the best effect. I decided to substitute lemon juice instead of citric acid powder. This is definitely more natural, although the citric acid seems to add a stronger fizz when dropped in the bathtub! Happy FUN Easter!
