A bath bomb kit for kids is a unique way to introduce chemistry in a routine activity such as taking a bath. Bath bombs added to a relaxing warm tub of water will guarantee kids will have a blast during bath time. Baths are a tried and tested way to improve a person’s overall mood. Does your child love a hot bath? Or is he hard to convince that he needs a bath? Either way, adding an invigorating bath bomb to this cleansing routine will elevate this ordinary experience to a whole new level.
With this hands-on bath bomb for kids kit, children can make their own fizzy bath bombs and learn about the amazing chemical reactions that make it possible. Bath bombs also make wonderful handmade gifts. Each kit will make about 2 bath bombs using the mold in the kit. An instruction sheet also comes with a fail-proof recipe to make more.
Kit includes bath bomb mixes, dried lavender flowers, bath bomb molds, and a spray bottle.
But how do bath bombs work? What makes them fizzle?
The answer is simple chemistry. There are many different ingredients when making a bath bomb, including fragrances like dried flower petals, colors, and even essential oils. But all bath bombs have baking soda and citric acid. These ingredients react when they touch the water, producing that exciting chemical reaction that creates a lot of bubbles. These bubbles, by the way, are filled with carbon dioxide gas.
Kids will mix the ingredients in the kit, put them in the mold, and let them dry. Once they’re dry, they’re ready for a test run. Fill the tub with warm water and drop the bomb right in. Watch it fizzle and be fascinated with the chemical reaction taking place just by mixing the correct ingredients together and putting the mixture into the water.
Once kids have succeeded in conducting this experiment, they can test different quantities of the ingredients to see which combination produces the most fizz. Talk about hours and hours of fun and learning connected to science! They can also try different colors, scents, and shapes to enhance their creativity and imagination.
Alternatively, they can test their bath bombs in tubs with different water temperatures. A nice, long, hot bath sure is relaxing. But on a hot summer day, nothing beats a cold bath. So why not test how a bath bomb reacts to cold water in a tub? There are definitely several ways to expand this experiment and maximize the use of this kit while improving your child’s scientific knowledge and skills.
With a variety of possible ways to get creative with this experiment, your family will surely have an array of bath bombs that you can use for personal consumption or give away to family and friends as gifts.
