One of my favorite kids in the world is a little (OK not so little anymore) kid named Noah. Noah has Autism and sometimes bathtime can be a challenge. However, he loves bath bombs so we came up with this awesome recipe to make homemade bath bombs for kids!
Bath Bomb Recipe
Here is the recipe we came up with. We did not include citric acid in the recipe as people can be can trigger allergies and irritate sensitive skin.
All the ingredients needed to make the homemade bath bombs can be purchased on Amazon.
- 1/2 Cup Cornstarch
- 1/2 Cup Epsom Salts (Allergy Warning: Some people are allergic to epsom salt. If you or someone you know is allergic just replace this ingredient with baking soda)
- 1 Cup Baking Soda
- 4 Tablespoons Cream of Tartar
- 2 1/2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
- Water to spray
- Essential Oil
- Food Coloring
- Muffin Tin or other molds to put them in.

Homemade Bath Bombs for Kids Directions
- Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
- Add the coconut oil and spray it with water creating a crumbly mixture similar to wet sand. Make sure to mix everything together while spraying the water, so you don’t activate the bath bomb.
- With everything mixed together divide the bath bomb mixture into smaller bowls. Add the different colors to the bowls to make your bath bombs colorful. If you want your bath bombs to all be the same color leave it all in the large bowl.
- Now that the mixture is colorful add the essential oils. I don’t recommend mixing 2 scents together so keep that in mind when adding the oils to the mixture. Approximately 1/2 teaspoon of essential oils should be added to each bowl.
- Add the mixture to the muffin tins or molds. Get creative and layer the colors in the muffin tins. To add a little extra fun put extra drops of food coloring or little toys in the center of the muffin tin.
- Let the bath bombs dry for at least 24 hours if not longer depending on the size. If you take them out too early they will crumble.
- The easiest way to get the bath bombs out of the muffin tin or mold is to flip them on to the cookie sheet.
- Once dry, keep the bath bombs in an airtight container.
