  • Fizzy Bath Bombs

    Fizzy bath bombsI just made these with some kids in my craft class and it was a big hit.

    Ingredients and materials needed:

    • Baking soda
    • Citric Acid (available on-line)
    • Corn starch
    • Soap molds (available at craft stores)
    • Soap scents (available at craft store)
    • Soap dyes or food coloring (available at craft stores)
    • Spray spritzer bottle
    • Water
    • 2 glass bowls, one large, one small
    • Metal spoon


    Mix 1 cup of baking soda, 1/2 cup of citric acid and 1/4 cup of cornstarch in a large bowl. Knead with your hands to get out all the lumps. Remove about 1/4 cup from the large bowl and place into the small bowl. In the small bowl, add about 10 drops of scent and 5 drops of color. Mix thoroughly with the metal spoon. Then add to large bowl and mix again. While you keep kneading with your hands have someone spritz the mixture with some water from the spray bottle. Do a little at a time until the mixture is damp enough to mold into your hands like a snowball. Don’t over mist because you don’t want the mixture to fizz up. Working quickly, pack the mixture into molds and let set until they are dry. About 30-60 minutes. Molds do not need to be pretreated. Once they are dry, turn the molds over and gently tap to remove. Let sit for another 30 minutes or so until they are completely dry.
    For best results choose molds that aren’t too intricate or large. Any excess that doesn’t fit in the molds can still be used as fizzy bath powder. Recipe can be doubled.
