Mother’s Day has shifted from a day where I celebrate my mom to a day where I celebrate with my mom, daughter and sister. The larger the family grows the more moms we add. It is crazy to consider someday my daughter will be a mom! That is a long way off considering she is only three years old. This year my daughter and I made gifts for my mom, myself and my sister. It was an extremely fun experience making these bath bombs with her!
We started the Mother’s Day crafting with a shopping trip to Target. Before we found all the DIY Bath Bomb ingredients, we stopped at the Target card section. It’s filled with so many awesome cards for Mother’s Day. I love the simple cards that have something that you can keep on them. The one I chose has a heart on it. My daughter helped pick it with me as I read all the cards that caught her eye. She thought this was the prettiest because it had hearts and is purple. I loved the message and that it shows my mom how special she is to both me and my daughter. A gift to my mom would not be complete without the perfect card.

My daughter and I shopped for all the DIY Bath Bomb ingredients at Target. Once we got everything home, we covered the kitchen table and started mixing in a large bowl and molded the DIY Bath Bombs into round balls using a mold that I had from last year. I love that we get to talk math and mixing while we create this awesome smelling Mother’s Day gift.

If you use Food Coloring; will it dye the ‘guests/receivers’ skin when they use it?
Yes, that is why I buy soap coloring instead.
Can I use Fresh (my own leaves from my plants) peppermint for Scrub?
Where do you get the mold? Can you use food coloring? What do you wrap them in? How long are they good for? When you make sugar scrub how long are they good for in a sealed jar?
