This Sunny Day homemade bath bomb tutorial is sponsored by Nickelodeon. All opinions are mine. #SunnyDay
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!
INGREDIENTS (makes 24 small bath bombs)
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid
1/2 cup Epsom salts
3/4 cup corn starch
1 teaspoon water
2 teaspoon essential oil
3 teaspoon olive oil
5-10 drops food coloring
silicone sun molds
Step 1: Combine the baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salts and corn starch together in a large mixing bowl.
Step 2: In a separate bowl, combine the water, essential oil (we used lavender), olive oil and food coloring together.
Step 3: Combine the wet with the dry ingredients, using a whisk or spatula. Mix until the ingredients are smooth and the food coloring is evenly distributed.
Step 4: Spoon the ingredients into the silicone mold and press down firmly, packing as much in as possible.
Step 5: Allow bath bombs to fully dry in molds overnight.
Step 6: Once the bath bombs are fully dry, flip the silicone mold upside down. Lightly tap on the bath bombs to free them from the mold.
Step 7: Place the bath bombs in mason jars. Print out the Sunny Day jar toppers to go on the lids. Give the bath bomb jars as gifts or party favors.
Step 8: Place one bath bomb in your next bath for a relaxing treat.
