DIY Homemade Sunny Day Bath Bomb Recipe for Kids

My 4 year old just loves Sunny Day, the fun new show on Nick Jr. about a salon owner who is ready to save the day – one hairdo at a time! Amelia loves playing hair salon and we spend a good amount of time looking up new hairstyles to try on YouTube. She has definitely put my hair braiding skills to the test lately. It has been a fun mother-daughter bonding experience for us. I love that Amelia found a show that so perfectly fits her interests at the moment and I also love that the characters on the show are full of positivity and a can-do attitude. Watch Sunny Day weekdays on Nickelodeon! 

In addition to all things hair, Amelia also really loves making her own homemade bath and beauty products. She has very sensitive skin and we are able to control the ingredients going in our creations. We recently whipped up a bath of Sunny Day inspired bath bombs. We used sun shaped silicone molds, along with food coloring to match the Sunny Day crew. They are so easy and fun to make, you’ll never buy bath bombs again! Keep reading for the tutorial and have a Sunny Day!
