Bubbles, Anyone?

I don't know about at your house, but my kids LOVE bubble baths! Every time we say its time for a bath they beg for bubbles. With Easter coming up I have trying to think of fun, inexpensive things to fill their little Easter baskets with...and what would be better than their own, individual homemade bubble bath??



Here's what you need:



1/2 C clear or light colored shampoo

3/4 C water

1/4 teaspoon salt

food coloring

essential oils (optional)




You simply mix the shampoo, water, and salt. Once it is completely combined and has started to thicken add a TEENSY amount of food coloring. Seriously, a little bit goes a long ways :) Then if you want you can add a few drops of essential oil (I did lavender, maybe it will help calm the crazies down before bed ;)




I put the finished product in empty body wash containers that I have been saving...you never know when they may come in handy! Then I printed off these little labels that I made for each of my kids. I just picked something they were into right now and this is what I came up with :)

Britton's Monster Bubbles


Kendall's Ballerina Bubbles


Skylar's Princess Bubbles


This was a fun, easy, and REALLY inexpensive homemade gift for my kids that I think they will get lots of enjoyment out of. What fun things are you putting in your kids Easter baskets??

LOVE this! Did you just print the labels on sticker paper? This just solved my dilemma of what to get my nieces and nephews for their birthdays this year without breaking the bank.
