Bubblegum Bath Bomb For Kids:

Bath bombs have evolved, not just due to companies like LUSH, but because of creative minds all around the industry. The bath bomb we’ll discuss today is just another one of those fun, and creative ideas, the bubblegum bath bomb.

Not Hard To Please With These Bath Bombs:

Additionally, bath bombs for kids don’t usually require all those extra fancy ingredients. For example, clay’s, butters, extra carrier oils for the skin. Simple put, they are usually easier to please, then us grownups, haha.

Kids want bright colors, spin, and fizz! If your bubblegum bath bomb creation does these things, they’ll be impressed.

We’ll discuss how to make an assortment of bubblegum scented bath bombs that, if done right, actually can fit right inside a bubblegum dispenser. Afterward, your kiddos can enjoy them on a bath-by-bath basis, or it can make for a cool gift idea.

Another Reasons Why You Should Try This Recipe!

Simplicity. Having kids can be busy, right? Above all else, we don’t want to add a challenging project that becomes more work, then it’s worth. The recipe is simple. Besides the bubblegum machine and fragrance, many of the ingredients you may even own already.

Places to purchase bubblegum machines include, Walmart, Amazon, and we’ve even see them at the dollar store. Also, many of these cheaper versions of bubblegum dispensers don’t actually dispense, instead the lid is removable for easy access.

Alert: As always, be conscientious that these are indeed small round balls, children should always be supervised by a responsible adult when using.

Recipe For A Bubblegum Bath Bomb:


  • 4 Total Bowls (1 for mixing, other 3 are for the colors to be separated in)
  • Measuring Cups & Spoons
  • Gloves
  • Eye-wear & Face Mask
  • Bubblegum Molds (we prefer this mold from CadaSoapery).
  • Bubblegum Dispenser

Dry Ingredients:

  • 2 Cup Baking Soda
  • 1 Cup Citric Acid
  • 1/2 Cup Corn Starch

Wet Ingredients:

  • Sweet almond Oil – 1 tsp (Alert: can make bath tub slightly slippery)
  • Spray Bottle With Water
  • Food coloring – 3 colors
  • Bubblegum skin safe fragrance: Purchase Here

To know how much fragrance oil to use, we recommend using this simple calculator. Simply choose Bath Bombs, enter in the amount of ingredients, and choose, bubblegum fragrance. Then, it will calculate a usage rate for your bubblegum bath bomb recipe.


Step 1:

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

Then, mix your dry ingredients in one bowl. For example, the baking soda, citric acid and corn starch. Additionally, while mixing, pay attention to any clumps, it helps to run the ingredients through a sifter.

Step 2:

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

Step 3:

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

Step 4:

Then, add a few drops of each color into your three bowls. For example, a few drops of blue in one, red in another, and green in the third bowl, mixing thoroughly.

Step 5:

At this point, your mixture will still be fairly dry and not ready for molding, quite yet. Now, take your spray bottle, add a few spritzes of water to the bowl, one at a time.

Once you have sprayed the mixture, be quick to start mixing, or the backing soda and citric acid could begin to fizz (or react).

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, without sticking to it.

Step 6:

Finally, it’s time to form our bath bombs. Above all, 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 mold, watch this short video below.

Step 7:

Once formed, place on something soft like egg carton foam for 24-hours. After the drying process, place the bath bombs into your bubblegum dispenser.
