As a parent, I know how difficult it can be to get some kids to take a bath. It can literally become a chore for them and for you. Even if they have the tub filled to the top with toys and bubbles, it can still be just a boring chore for them. And while there isn’t anything wrong with bubbles in the bathtub they can also be boring. How about livening up bath time with a fun bath bomb just for kids? Nature’s Garden has created some Bath Bombs for Kids that will surely make bath time a lot less boring and a lot more fun!
The ingredients used in most of the bath bombs are baking soda: a natural deodorizer that helps keep your skin soft and smooth. Citric acid: this ingredient puts the fizz in any bath bomb recipe and also helps the bath bomb produce foam. Each bath bomb has a different oil used that will help keep little one’s skin soft and hydrated after the fun is over.
Bath bombs don’t have to be all girly! This Camouflage Bath Bomb will be a big hit with little boys right off the bat! The cool camo colors of green, tan, brown and black will catch any little boy’s eye right off. We’ve chosen Deadly Weapon fragrance oil to turn this kid bomb into a big kid bomb! It has a rugged, masculine scent of spice and leather. Tucked inside the bath bomb, though, is a neat little army guy that will appear when the bath bomb has completely dissolved! How neat would these be to create these as a party favor or to just make for any little man in your life?
Muddy Pig Bath Bomb is a totally cute way for kids to jump in the tub to get themselves clean! It’s a bright pink ball with brown, muddy spots all over it, but what’s inside is what gives this bath bomb its name! A tiny, pink toy pig is hiding in the middle, waiting for bath time to be over! We’ve used baking soda, citric acid and apricot kernel oil to keep your little one’s skin soft and smooth. Butterfly Flower fragrance oil is what we chose for this bomb. A light, green floral bouquet with a touch of tang! It’s the perfect scent for any little kid wanting to get clean.
Cow Pies don’t sound like a good way to get clean! Well, of course, it’s not THAT kind of Cow Pie, but a Cow Pie Bath Bomb! Using the base mix of baking soda, citric acid and apricot kernel oil, your little cowboy or cowgirl will have soft, squeaky clean skin when it’s all said and done. And to keep them in the bath without getting bored a surprise awaits them when the bath bomb has fizzled itself out! A tiny little cow that can hang out in the bathtub with them while they bathe! We chose the fragrance oil Hayride to compliment this farm-inspired bath bomb. A sweet balsam and cedar wood scent to remind you of time spent outdoors!
Not all bath bombs have to be round in shape. You can mold them into anything or any shape you want! For our Superman Bath Fizzies, we used a mini ice cream scoop and don’t they look just like scoops of Superman Ice Cream? Make sure your kiddos aren’t tempted to take a nibble! With their bright colors of blue, red and yellow they are definitely eye catching! And as they fizzle away in the bathtub, you can smell our Strawberry Soda Pop fragrance oil, that reminds you of fizzy bubbles, strawberries and sugar! This bath fizzie will make bath time a sweet experience!
I don’t know too many little boys who are not fascinated at some point with dinosaurs. They’re amazing creatures of the past that make some of us happy that they no longer exist. So if you have a little boy or even a little girl that loves dinosaurs, this Dinosaur Egg Bath Bomb would be a perfect bath time treat for them. On the outside, it looks like a dinosaur egg, and each layer reveals a new color as it melts away in the bath water until out pops a baby dinosaur that was waiting to hatch! The fun part is not knowing what kind of dinosaur is hiding inside. Kids can have fun guessing which type of dinosaur will appear before the bath ends! To help give this bath bomb a tropical feel, we chose Bermuda Triangle fragrance oil. An excellent fruity blend of melons and citrus fruit with the sweet tang of McIntosh apples!
Here’s another fun, hidden toy bath bomb that reminds you of the sea! With it’s bright, neon blue color and candy fish sprinkles on top, this Fish Toy Bath Bomb is a perfect addition to any kid’s bath time! Scented with Mermaid Kisses fragrance oil, your bathroom will smell like a soft, floral underwater playground. When the bath bomb has fizzled out, what kind of surprise is going to pop out? What kind of fish? You’ll have to wait until bath time over to see!
I bet you didn’t think taking a bath at Christmas time could be festive. Well, it can! Not only are these cute Christmas Tree bath bombs fun to have for the kids to use but they would make adorable little stocking stuffers or even a cute addition to a soap and lotion gift basket creation. You can even decorate these bath bombs with some round candy sprinkles for ornaments. We’ve chosen our Kringleberry fragrance oil that has a Christmas-y aroma of spiced oranges, apples and evergreen.
These fun bath bombs don’t have to be just for the kids. They don’t need to know that mom used one when she was soaking off some stress in a nice hot bath! These Cotton Candy bath bombs are perfect for kids or adults! So simple to make and the Cotton Candy fragrance oil that smells of strawberry and vanilla will fill your bathroom and leave it smelling like a carnival!
Now, these peeps are for bathing and not eating! They truly look like the marshmallow treat so warn your kiddos to not take a nibble. To give these Peeps Bunny Bath Bombs an even more realistic appearance, we’ve covered them in sugar to give them the feel of the popular Easter snack! The sugar also makes a nice, natural exfoliate to help keep the skin soft and smooth. We have chosen our Honey Almond fragrance oil that is a delicate, sweet scent of almonds, vanilla and honey. This is a very nice scent for kids.
This looks almost too cute to use, but if your kid is frustrating about taking baths, bribe them with this fun bath fizzy! Snakes in the Grass Bath Fizzies do not look like your typical bath bomb, but that’s okay! You get the same reaction in your bath water just like you would with a regular bath bomb. We got creative using Hawaiian Black Salt for the dirt and little white candy ball sprinkles added in to make it look more like potting soil! Hawaiian Black Salt also makes a wonderful exfoliator that is both gentle and beneficial to the skin! Even kids’ tender skin! The fragrance oil we chose was Mr. Pepper MD which smells incredibly similar to the always popular soda pop, Dr. Pepper. When it’s bath time, scoop a spoonful of bath fizzy into the water and let the kids soak away! Toss in one of the little, plastic snakes for the kids to play with and when bath time’s over, dry off Mr. Snake and poke him back into the jar!
Here we have one of our newest recipes, our Sugar Plum Bath Bomb! A perfect way to get any little girl to have some tub time! It’s perfectly purple with a little sparkle added to it from diamond dust mica and of course the fragrance oil that inspired it, Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. A sweet and spicy blend of plums, cherries, cinnamon and clove! This recipe, however, differs slightly than the others. In addition to baking soda, citric acid and a cosmetic oil, we have incorporated Sodium Cocyl Isethionate or SCI. This ingredient is popular in bubble bars, bath bombs and in shampoos. It is a gentle foaming agent. So, not only will this bath bomb leave your skin soft and silky, it will perform a fizzing and foaming dance in your bath tub!
This is a fun recipe for young ones and tweens! With the addition of bright neon FUN Soap Colorants and the sparkle of diamond dust, your kids bath time will leave their skin soft with a touch of sparkle! While it is actually a bubble bar, we thought it was worth mentioning. We’ve used Sodium Cocyl Isethionate, or SCI, in this recipe that let’s your Galaxy Bubble Bar give off some foam for that “bubble” action. We chose Grape Happy Camper Fragrance oil for this recipe that is a sweet, juicy grape scent that will remind you a popular hard candy that you enjoyed as a child!
These Monster Bath Cookies may look like a Halloween sweet treat but try not to let the kids take a nibble! We’ve used cocoa butter in this recipe that will leave the skin soft and nourished. We’ve also used Epsom salts that is very beneficial to the skin, young or old. With some fun edible eyeballs peeking out of the green cookie, your kids will have a blast watching this cookie fizzle and bubble away at bath time! We also used our Magic Potion fragrance oil that gives this bath cookie an extra Halloween boost! It is a fruity blend of peaches, grapes and plums with a touch of rose!
How about setting out a plate of these Christmas Bath Cookies out, but not for Santa! Display these bath treats in your bathroom to use during the holiday season! They look so much like Christmas cookies that you may have to put a warning label on them to not consume! These bath cookies have a couple of extra touches added to give you more than a bath bomb! The cookie part is the bath bomb part and the frosting on the cookie is a mixture of whipped soap base and coco butter melt and pour soap! Kind of like you can have your cake and eat it to! You can have a bath bomb and get clean, soft skin also! Of course, this bath treat smells amazing since we used our Christmas Cookies fragrance oil! A true bakery scent of vanilla and buttery cookie!
