How To Make A Kids Bath Scrub

kids bath scrub

 

My kids are older, so gone are the days of making cute little scrubs or making them their own tye dye shoes. I still love doing crafts and baking with them, so I am always on the search for something fun to do with them. Browsing around on Pinterest one day, yes I am slightly obsessed with Pinterest, I found a bunch of bath scrubs and they looked fairly easy to make. I decided why not, let’s make a Kids Bath Scrub that little ones, as well as big ones, will love to make.

This bath scrub is very versatile and can be made with as many colors as you like, or with as little colors as you like. My kids picked out red and blue food coloring. I have even seen some recipes that add a few drops of essential oils to the coconut oil to help kids fall asleep (lavender) or many other uses.

Kids Bath Scrub

Bring the kids along, and let’s make this bath scrub. You will only need three ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Epsom Salt
  • 1 Cup Coconut Oil
  • Red and Blue Food Colouring

The kids will surely love to help make their very own bath scrub and it is easy:

Mix the Epsom Salt with the Coconut Oil and stir well. For this next step, make sure everyone is wearing gloves. Separate the salt mix into three different bowls. Place a few drops of red food colouring into one of the bowls, until you get the desired look. Stir Well. Repeat the process with the blue food colouring. Once you are happy with your colours, layer them into a jar. 

Directions:

-Measure the Epsom salt into a large bowl.
-Measure the coconut oil and place in a microwave safe bowl.
-Heat in the microwave for 2 minutes.
-Combine the Epsom salt and the melted coconut oil and stir until mixed.
-Add an essential oil of your choice traditionally 5 or more drops. 
-Divide the Epsom salt and oil combination into 3 bowls.
-Leave the scrub in first bowl white.
– In the second bowl add several drops of red food colouring.*
-Mix the red food colouring with the Epsom salt mixture until the colour is thoroughly blended.
-In the third bowl add several drops of blue food colouring.*
-Mix  the blue food colouring with the Epsom salt mixture until the color is thoroughly blended.
-Choose a container or jar with a lid of your choice.  A Mason jar would look outstanding.
-Layer your prepared scrub with the red on the bottom, white in the middle and top it off with the blue.
– Place near the bathtub to use when you bath. This removes the dead skin cells and brightens up your skin for the warm summer months.

Soak in a bath and enjoy!

* I checked out the food colouring by using it on myself and because of the coconut oil it rinses off during your shower leaving your skin soft and smooth.

Kids will love to make their very own Kids Bath Scrub and they will love bathing with it. My kids are older, and they still had a blast making this. I hope your kids enjoyed making this as much as mine. If you make it, make sure to share with us on Facebook or Twitter!
