Hello everyone! This is Adelle from Get Away Today, and I’m going to be sharing some crafts here each month that I think you’ll love. With the holidays fast-approaching, this DIY Mickey Bath Bomb is the perfect craft for you and the kids to make as gifts.
DIY Mickey Bath Bombs – Stocking Stuffers or Neighbor Gifts
At Get Away Today, we love sharing a little Disney magic whenever we can, and these DIY Mickey Bath Bombs are perfect for this! You make them for your kids’ stockings or for teacher/neighbor gifts and spread some Disney love for the holidays.
DIY Mickey Bath Bomb
No matter how many wishes upon a star are made, a person can’t spend EVERY day at Disneyland. But, you can bring a little bit of Disney magic with you wherever you go…even into the bathtub! Make bath time magical relaxing and fun with these adorable DIY Mickey Bath Bombs.
A typical bath bomb costs about $5-$7. Who wants to spend that kind of money on something that essentially disappears when that money could be put towards a Disney vacation instead?! Slide your extra cash into your piggy bank and learn how to make your own homemade Mickey Bath Bombs! They are oh so cute and way more economical in the long run.
DIY Mickey Bath Bomb Recipe:
- 1 Cup Baking Soda
- 1/2 Cup Citric Acid
- 1/2 Cup Corn Starch
- 3 T Epsom Salt
- Cosmetic Pigment Powder
- 3 T Coconut Oil (Melted)
- Witch Hazel for Spritzing
- 12 Drops Essential Oil
- Mickey Mold
I ordered most of my ingredients right from Amazon. I’m sure you have some ingredients around the house, or could find them at a big box or craft store.
DIY Mickey Bath Bomb – Mix it Up!
Start with a large mixing bowl. Add 1 cup of baking soda to the bowl. Make sure the baking soda is fresh.
Next, add 1/2 cup citric acid. My kids sampled a taste of the citric acid and it is crazy sour! If you want to add a little fun to your bath bomb making process try a lick! Get ready to pucker.
Place 1/2 cup cornstarch and 3 T Epsom salt into the bowl. Stir all of the ingredients together so they are mixed evenly.
DIY Mickey Bath Bomb – Choose a Color
Now, select the color you want for the Mickey bath bomb. I chose a nice rosy pink. Pink reminds me of Minnie Mouse. She is so happy and sweet. It felt like the perfect color for my bath bombs. For the holidays, maybe you’d like to do classic colors such as red or green. I ordered the cosmetic pigment powder and I totally recommend the powder if you plan to make a lot of bath bombs. It mixes in so evenly and the color is vibrant. It works better than a liquid food coloring for sure; less guesswork.
Mix the color power into the other ingredients and then set it aside for a minute. Place 3 T of coconut oil into a little dish and melt it in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
DIY Mickey Bath Bomb – Choose a Scent
Drop about 12 drops of essential oil into the melted coconut oil. You can use any scent you want. Peppermint, lavender, and lemon are kinda nice. Again if you’re making Mickey bath bombs for the holidays, you can choose something seasonal.
Pour the oils into the dry ingredients and mix them all together so there aren’t any big clumps.
DIY Mickey Bath Bomb – Test Your Mixture
Put Witch Hazel into a small spray bottle. Use the bottle to spritz the powder a few times and then stir. Spritz the powder a few more times and stir. You do not want to over wet the ingredients because the fizz will start to activate! To test if the ingredients are ready, clump a handful in your fist. If it says together without crumbling, then do not add more sprays. If it won’t stick at all, add a few more sprays of the witch hazel.
DIY Mickey Bath Bomb – Set and Shape It
Place the Disney bath bomb powder into a Mickey Mold. I got my mold from the Disney store but, as I mentioned above, you can order a lot of great stuff on Amazon. Depending on the size of your Mickey mold, this recipe will make four Mickey Bath Bombs. Press the powder firmly into the molds. You want it to be packed in very tight.
Let the Mickey Bath Bomb dry for at least 24 hours. The witch hazel evaporates and the powder will get nice and hard. When it is ready, gently press the bath bomb out of the mold.
Don’t they look cute?! They are almost too adorable to use. I hope you have fun making and giving these Mickey bath bombs!
