Crafting a Bath Bomb with Your Child

Hi everyone!  I hope you are having a great Friday!  It is getting closer to the weekend and a long weekend at that.  However, it seems that the ‘now’ trend for everyone including our children is bath bombs, am I right??  Everyone loves a good bath bomb because it makes our skin soft and helps us relax when we need to take a breather.  Well, what if I told you that there is a bath bomb painting kit out there?  And, it’s one that you can include your child.  It’s a win-win, right?

Well, my daughter and I recently got a bath bomb kit where we got to decorate our own bath bombs.  The bath bombs were already made, but we got to paint them in our own style.  I will warn you that these will quickly be used and they will turn into your child’s instead of both you and hers.  At least, that’s how ours turned out, it quickly became hers instead of both of ours, but it was okay, I let her have them.

So, if you are wondering where I got this from, I am about to tell you.  As most of you know, I have a bath bomb dealer, PopNatural, that is totally awesome!  She is such a sweet and awesome person who knows her stuff and knows her bath bombs.  Anyways, she did a collaboration with Stardust Micas (a powder that you can use to paint bath bombs).  And, this wonderful collaboration turned into this cute little kit.  I will need to tell you that there is a warning on the box that since this kit has a mica powder and you use some rubbing alcohol that you must supervise your child at all times with painting.

So, now, let’s look at the kit.  Here is the box that it came in:

See, it’s like getting take-out, but you and your child is getting a night-in and some relaxation.  Super cute!  However, with this painting kit, there are a few things that you will need to provide (most likely you will already have these in your home) such as a paint brush, reusable cups, a plate to put the bath bombs on to dry, and rubbing alcohol.

After you get all of these goodies out, then it is finally time to go through the steps of having a fun painting party!

Here are the steps:

  1. Put the mica powder into each cup (there should be 4 different color powder) and pour them into each cup.  Then, you start pouring a few drops of alcohol (at a time) to a point that this concoction is smooth like paint.                                                                                                           

When you get done with stirring in the paint (there is an included spoon), it is time to have your own little painting partay!!  All that you will need to do is to take your paint brush and paint whichever color onto the bath bomb.  Simple, easy, and fun!                                                     

As you can see here, we did paint them differently, but in the end, my daughter wanted to paint them whole.  And that’s okay, she used her imagination and didn’t want to waste any paint.  So, here is the end product:

 

And with that, the final step is to let them dry for about an hour or overnight (we waited overnight).  I also did tell my daughter that the magical bath bomb fairies came and helped them dry overnight.  Yes, it’s silly, but it worked (almost).  The next night, she could not wait any longer and used one in her bath.  She loved it!  She loved it so much that she had to have one in her bath every time.  So, I will warn you again that while yes, you will need to be careful with the powder and alcohol, but your child will never want to take a simple bath again.  It’s a double edge sword because it’s so neat to see that since she helped out and got to paint her own bath bombs, that she actually got to see the outcome of it, but once she uses them all, she got sad because there was none left.  But, it was a cool and neat sort of science experiment!

So, finally, my thoughts on this is that this kit really did turn out cute and it was a fun night of painting and just being in the moment with my daughter.  It’s hard being a present parent when you have a million errands that you need to get done, but when you get those moments, it’s like all of those errands melt away and you get to take a deep breath that you didn’t know you needed.  This was an awesome kit and I definitely recommend you go check out my girl at PopNatural.  She knows what she is talking about and makes amazing bath bombs!

Welp, that is all for this week and I hope you enjoyed reading.  This weekend is Labor Day weekend, so yay for a long relaxing weekend!  As always, I hope you have a great weekend and I will see you in the next post!
