Easter Egg Bath Bombs

My house is overflowing with plastic Easter eggs. I’ve been using them for quite a few projects lately and now I have more eggs than I really know what to do with. An Easter egg hunt this year for the kiddos is inevitable.

Today, I’m using a pack of my larger plastic Easter eggs for a super fun project. Get ready because we’re making 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. Yep, those are the ones. And yes, you can make them yourself!

Ingredients (Will make 6 large bath bombs)

  • 8 oz. Baking soda
  • 4 oz. Epsom salt
  • 4 oz. Cornstarch
  • 4 oz. Citric acid
  • 3 teaspoons water
  • 2 teaspoons essential oil or fragrance oil for soaps, etc.
  • 2-5 drops food coloring
  • Larger plastic Easter eggs or silicone/plastic mold
  • Confetti sprinkles (optional)

 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. Did you ever chew grape Hubba Bubba gum as a kid? Yes? This fragrance oil smells just like it! 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. Keep in mind this needs to be very small and light or the egg will not pack correctly. One time I tried to hide some turtle erasers in the eggs and they fell right apart. Then push the sides together and let the egg sit on a towel covered with waxed paper for at least 15 minutes.
