bathtime bubble jelly

You will need:
Packet unflavored Gelatin
3/4 Cup water
1/2 Cup clear liquid soap or bubble bath
Fragrance oils
Food Coloring (optional)
Plastic jar with lid (e.g. peanut butter jar)
Small plastic bath toy
Mixing Bowl
Assorted items to make label

Empty the packet of gelatin into a mixing bowl. Set aside.
With the help of an adult, warm water until it begins to boil.
Immediately remove water from heat source. Carefully pour the hot water into mixing bowl and gently mix with gelatin powder. Allow gelatin to completely dissolve. Be patient! This may take a few minutes.

S-l-o w-l-y and gently stir in the liquid soap to the gelatin
mixture. Add a drop of food coloring and 5-8 drops of fragrance oil. (Be careful not to beat mixture, bath jelly will become foamy if you do.)

Pour your potion into a clean, clear container. Place a small toy
inside jar as a treat!

Refrigerate Bubble Jelly until set (about 4 hours). As the jelly
sets, come up with a name for your creation! Then using scraps of stiff paper and ribbon, make a fun label for the jar. Attach label to bath jelly jar by punching a hole in one corner of the label. Thread ribbon, cut long enough to tie around the jar, through hole on label. Tie around the jar!

To use, scoop a small amount of jelly into your hand and hold under warm running water for a bubbly bath-time treat!

Scented Milk Bath

Here is an easy milk bath recipe... Add 2 parts milk powder to 1 part cornstarch and then add a little essential oil until you get the scent intensity you want and you are done.

'Sweet Nothings' are to use in your bathwater

Sweet Nothings

1/4 cup powdered milk
2 tbs. powdered sugar
2 tbs. borax powder(20 Mule Team)
1/4 cup rose water or orange water
2 tsp. vitamin E
10 drops essential oil

Combine the dried milk, sugar, and borax in a bowl, stirring until well mixed. Add the water, vitamin E, and fragrance. Stir until you have a thick dough. Depending on the humidity in the air, you may need to cut the water amount back. Try adding a little at a time until you get the thick dough.
Roll dough into a ball, one teaspoon at a time with your hands. Repeat until all of the dough has been used. Place the balls on a sheet of tin foil or waxed paper and let dry for twenty four hours.
