Measure out all of the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
Combine the oils and the food coloring in a separate bowl and mix well. Slowly add this mixture to the dry ingredient bowl.
The texture of the mixture should clump and feel like wet sand. Add the teaspoons of water until you get this texture. Only add the amount of water necessary until the mixture clumps ( you may not use all 2 teaspoons).
Put some oil on the inside of the bath bomb molds and pack the mixture firmly into the moulds.
Let dry for 24 hours (waiting is always the hard part!
If you want to make a bath bomb with your own creature inside, hide a toy in the mixture while it is still wet. When the bomb dissolves, the kids will have a fun surprise, just like Beaker Creatures! Don’t forget to check out all the cool sets we have to get the Beaker Creatures out of their pods!
Science behind it:
When baking soda and citric acid are mixed together and then put in the bath, they start a chemical reaction! The reaction makes a lot of bubbles which are made out of carbon dioxide gas. It is totally safe and makes for lots of fizzles and fun!
You will need:
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid
1/2 cup corn-starch
1/4 cup Epsom salt
2 tbsp olive oil
