Beautiful Baths Activity for Kids

Mother's Day activities and crafts are fun for kids to create, and mom can use this craft gift over and over. Mom will love to relax in a beautiful bath after a busy day. Use her favorite flavorings and colors in the bath salts, and personalize the envelopes with drawings of mom's favorite things.

What You'll Need:

4 tablespoons baking soda

Bowl

Food flavorings (almond, mint, orange, or vanilla)

Food coloring

Spoon

Markers

Envelopes

Your Mom will thank you again and again for these wonderful homemade bath salts.

Put the baking soda in a bowl, and mix in a few drops of flavoring and a few drops of food coloring. Mix them together with a spoon until all the ingredients are well-blended.

Choose colors that go well with the flavors, such as green food coloring with mint flavoring, and orange food coloring with orange flavoring.

Name the different bath salts you create (Sweet Vanilla Dream or Minty Refresher), and write the names on the envelopes.

Decorate the envelopes with pictures of mom's favorite things and other pretty pictures. Fill the envelopes with the bath salts.
