As Mother’s Day is approaching here in Australia (Sun 11th May) I thought I’d share a post that I wrote for Kidspot this time last year – how to make your own bath salts. It is a quick and easy Mother’s Day gift that is simple enough for the youngest of children to make for their Mum’s, Grandma’s or special women in their lives …
You will need:
1. Pour the Epsom salt into the mixing bowl. Any amount will do. My kids were fascinated by the salt that looked like snow and they couldn’t resist running their fingers through it.
2. Add a drop or two of food dye to the salt and stir with a spoon to integrate the colour. Any colour will do – we chose purple to match our lavender essential oil.
5. Why not make some more using a different colour? With my girls, pink and purple are always the colour of choice!
What is your favourite way to relax? Do you ever make time for a bath?
You might like to try making some bath bombs to go with it as it uses some of the same ingredients and is also fun and simple to make with kids.
