DIY Bath Fizzies for Kids and Science Experiment Tutorial
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup corn starch
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- food coloring/color gels
- silicone cupcake molds
This mix makes about 10 bath fizzies.
5. Add another spoon of the mixture to the top and press down using your finger tips or the back of a spoon.
1. Add essential oils to your bath fizzies.
2. See how the individual ingredients react to water (before mixing them together) and then continue to mix and see how they react together.
3. Plan your colors when you mix them in the bath tub to create new colors! Red + Yellow = Orange. Orange + Blue = Brown, etc.
Fizzing of the bath fizzies shows a chemical reaction taking place between the ingredients. The baking soda reacts with the cornstarch and citric acid when you expose them to water. The result is a bubbly fizz that eventually all dissolves in the water.
