How’s Summer going? As a mom of 6, I know, it’s so important to keep finding fun ideas to keep your kids occupied. For my kids, if you find something fun to make and then add water, you have struck gold! Playdough can be messy but this bubble bath playdough can be used in the bathtub! The mess is in the tub and your kids can get clean while playing!
When Lisa was little she would take baths every day and make experiments in the process! This lets them create and have so much fun for hours! Yes, they will have wrinkly fingers when they are done!
- 1/4 cup Bubble Bath
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- food coloring
- 1/2 - 3/4 cup cornstarch
- In a small bowl combine bubble bath, coconut oil and food coloring. Stir together until mixed well.
- Add 1/2 cup cornstarch and work together. Knead with your hands and slowly add in more cornstarch until it reaches the desired consistency. If you add too much cornstarch and it becomes dry, simply add a little more bubble bath to reach the right consistency.
- Store near the sink to use as soap or give your child a little bit to play with like play dough in the bath tub. The soap dough will disintegrate and become bubbly when mixed with water.
Don’t give them too much bath play dough in the tub! It will dissolve in the water but too much might cause problems for your drain. It smells amazing and they’ll get clean while they play!
