These colorful Easter Egg Bath Bombs for kids are the perfect DIY craft to celebrate the upcoming Easter holiday! My 6 year old son loves bath bombs in his bath. These are so fun to make too!
Make these with your little one or add them to their Easter basket to give them something a little different (but still fun) to get excited about. Don’t worry… I’m sure your child will share their bath bombs with you (if you ask nicely).

Colorful Easter Egg Bath Bombs
Ingredients to make homemade bath bombs:
- 4 oz Epsom salt
- 8 oz baking soda
- 8 oz corn starch
- 4 oz citric acid
- 2 tbsp coconut oil (liquified)
- 1 tbsp water
- 2 drops Kiwi Soap Colorant
- 2 drops Forget Me Not Soap Colorant
- 2 drops Lemon Soap Colorant
- 2 drops Peach Soap Colorant
- (Optional essential oil)
- Large bowl
- 4 small bowls
- 12-16 small plastic Easter eggs
- Small jar with lid (or 4 so you don’t have to keep washing it between colors)
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
Directions to make Easter Egg Bath Bombs:
- Mix the dry ingredients first (Epsom salt, baking soda, corns, arch and citric acid), using the whisk. Mix well to ensure there are no clumps.
- Distribute evenly into 4 small bowls
- If your coconut oil is not in liquid form, melt in microwave for about 30 seconds.
- Mix the wet ingredients in a jar, one color at a time. The measurements would be 1 ½ teaspoons coconut oil and ¾ teaspoon water, plus 2 drops of soap colorant. Secure with lid, shake well.
- Very slowly add each color of liquid mixture to each bowl of dry mixture, about a few drops at time, while whisking the entire time. If you’re not pouring slowly enough, the mixture will start to fizz and you don’t want that to happen, because then you will need to start over again with all new ingredients.
- Once all of the liquid has been poured into the dry mixture, mix very well until the color is consistent.
- Fill the molds with the mixture (see process photos for examples). In one half of the egg, use one color to fill halfway, then add another color, stuffing it firmly to fill that half of egg. Repeat this process with the other two colors, filling the other half of the egg.
- Secure both parts of the plastic egg together and let set. I always give it about a day, just to be on the safe side.
- Carefully release bath bombs from eggs and put into an airtight container, or individual cello bags. The eggs can be tricky to open, so you can carefully and slowly use a butter knife to help open the gap between the two halves of the egg.
Now your Easter bath bombs are ready to use or give. Have fun!
