Bubblegum Bath Bomb for Kids

bubblegum bath bomb for kids

One of the most creative bath bomb sets I have seen are these awesome bubblegum bath bombs we will discussing today. They are super simple to make and the kids are going to go absolutely bonkers over them. Talk about wanting to take a bath, finally!
One of the things about making bath bombs for kids is that you really don't need to add all the fancy ingredients, like softeners or clay's for your skin, extra carrier oils, special butters and whatnot, because kids want one thing from there bath bombs and that's the fizz...and maybe a few spins.

In this blog we will be discussing how to make an assortment of bubblegum scented bath bombs that actually can fit right inside a bubble gum dispenser. These make for a great gift or just something to spruce up your child's bath time.

The recipe we will be discussing is simple, using mostly ingredients that you probably own already, minus the bubblegum fragrance, and can also be applied to making larger bubblegum bath bombs if you'd prefer.

We really like these smaller bath bombs because you can use and spread them over multiple baths. As always, be conscious that these are small round balls and children that use them should always be supervised by a responsible adult.

First off, you will need to purchase a small bubblegum machine. These can literally be bought for a dollar at a local dollar tree or for just a few dollars on Amazon + Free Shipping, we have even seen them at Walmart.

Keep in mind, the bath bombs we are making are very small, however will not actually dispense from most of these dispensers, but the lid is removable for you child to reach in and grab there fizzy.

Let's discuss some of the supplies we will need for these bubblegum bath bombs...

Supply List

  • 4 Total Bowls (1 for mixing, other 3 are for the colors to be separated in)
  • Measuring Cups
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Gloves
  • Eye-wear
  • Face Mask
  • BubbleGum Molds (we prefer the mold from CadaSoapery). Find it by clicking on the link!
  • Bubblegum Dispenser

Ingredient List

  • 2 Cup Baking Soda
  • 1 Cup Citric Acid
  • 1/2 Cup Corn Starch
  • 1 tsp Sweet almond Oil or grape-seed oil. These are very lightweight oils, easy to work with and safe!
  • Spray bottle of water
  • Food coloring - we like to do 3 colors to represent different colored gum balls (a little goes a long way & too much can stain the tub, yikes!)
  • Bubblegum skin safe fragrance (Make sure to purchase skin safe fragrance oil. If it is a concentrated blend you only need a few drops)

Recipe - Bubblegum Bath Bombs for Kids


Make sure you have a good amount of work space to spread your bowls out.

Mix your dry ingredients in one bowl. It's helpful to buy these supplies in fine grain so you don't have to work to many clumps out. Pour your baking soda, citric acid and corn starch into your large mixing bowl.


Next, pour your bubblegum fragrance into the dry mixture and mix thoroughly.


After your have the ingredients mixed together with no clumps, separate your mixture evenly into the 3 separate bowls.


Add a few drops of each color into your three bowl. For instance, a few drops of blue in one bowl, red in another and green in the third bowl and mix.


Take your spray bottle and add a few spritzes of water to one bowl at a time.

Tip: You will know it's the right consistency when you grab a handful and squeeze the mixture and it stays together in your hand


Now it's time to form our bath bombs. Obviously here you'll want to do one color at a time in the mold. To get a feel for how to use the Cada Soapery's bubblegum bath bomb mold, watch this short video.


Once you have these formed, place on something soft like egg carton foam for 24-hours. After dry, place the bath bombs into your bubblegum dispenser and wrap as a cool fun gift idea.

That's It!
