DIY Easter Egg Bath Bombs

1 Mar

Easter is around the corner and I thought this year it would be really fun to include some homemade Easter egg bath bombs in my kids Easter baskets.  If you have a tween or teen girl, you know how much they love bath bombs.  I recently learned how easy (and somewhat inexpensive) they are to make at home.  Besides Easter, you could make these for any occasion.  Birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers, etc.  I think these would make great bridal shower favors.  You could use our personalized favor tags & bags to make it an adorable take home favor!

My daughter Emily and I made these over the weekend and we had a lot of fun doing this together.  It was messy, so keep a vacuum nearby!  Here is the recipe we used from diyprojectsforteens.com:

Ingredients and Supplies:

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 2 tsp. essential oil
  • 3 tsp. oil (olive oil)
  • food coloring (any color you want)
  • bowl
  • whisk
  • jar
  • bath bomb mold

Step One

Place the dry ingredients in a bowl and then mix them all evenly with the whisk.

Step Two

In a separate container, mix the liquid ingredients together. Note that in this step, the essential oils, fragrances and colors are added. This is an important step! Make sure to pick out lots of fragrance oils to try out here, as you can make many fabulous combinations for bath time.

Step Three

Slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mix, one small spoon at a time.

Step Four

When well mixed, you simply pack this mixture into a bath bomb mold and pack tightly, then let it dry. Work quickly so as not to let the bath bomb mixture dry out.

We packed plastic Easter Eggs and clear ornament molds I found at a craft store.

My daughter Emily proud of her Bath Bomb creation!  You can combine different colors and scents if you’d like to make more colorful combinations. 

Enjoy!

Perfect for Your Favorite Prince or Princess

30 Apr

april-royal-robe One of the most traditional gifts for children is something incredibly simple and has been a mainstay gift for generations.  Yes, it’s a little monogrammed bathrobe.  There’s nothing cuter than a child in a robe, is there? Robes can easily become a child’s favorite clothing item as they are perfect on a cold night when snuggling on the couch, fun to wear on Christmas morning, great for stepping out of a bath or out of a pool and cozy just to hang out in.

The bathrobe for kids has certainly made a resurgence – in a huge way – this week!  Perhaps you’ve seen the press?  The adorable Prince George was photographed in his little robe when he met visiting U.S. President Barack Obama. It was reported that the prince was able to stay up 15 minutes past his bedtime in order to meet the President.  Wearing pajamas, slippers and his little white monogrammed bathrobe, it was the robe that was the hit of the night!

The robe featured blue piping and the embroidered name George and it really instantly became a sensation.  Prince George is a little fashion trendsetter! The robe sold out right away and it’s no wonder as the prince stole the show that night at Kensington Palace.

At The Stationery Studio, we have been selling wonderful velour hooded bathrobes for children for over 20 years.  The robes look very similar to the one Prince George was photographed wearing.  Our robes are white with your choice of trim, thread, size and a script or block embroidered personalization.  They are an adorable robe to make bath time or beach time a special time.   Made in the U.S.A. from the finest 100% Turkish cotton terry velour, our fabric is more durable and softer than any other cotton terry and the kids love it.

A great gift for new babies and kids of all ages, this little bathrobe is indeed fit for your favorite prince or princess!

Best wishes,

Renee
