DIY - Easter egg bath fizzies

I'm going to share with you how I made the Easter egg bath fizzies for the Easter basket swap at work.



To make the bath fizzies you'll need:

• 1 cup baking soda
• 1/2 cup citric acid
• 1/2 cup corn starch
• 1/2 cup Epsom salt

The reaction between the baking soda and citric acid is what makes the fizzies fizz.



And you'll need an egg shaped pan. I got this Wilton petite egg pan from Walmart.



You want to sift you dry ingredients together. Then in a separate bowl mix together:

• 3/4 tablespoons of water
• 2 1/2 tablespoons of nut oil (I use grape seed)
• 2 teaspoons of your fragrence



Slowly pour and mix into the dry mix.

At this point you'd add your color into the wet mix BEFORE you pour it into your dry mix. But I want to separate the  mix so I can make three colors. So I held back a little on the water also.

This is what your mix should look like. It sticks together a little.



I put a few drops of McCormick food coloring into a little plastic bowl with a couple drops of water and mixed them into the three separate batches.



I have a little spray bottle of witch hazel and water to spray onto the mixture if it's too dry. You mixture should hold together like this.



Now press the mixture into the egg pan. I did some color combos.



It was difficult to keep the backside smooth and neat.



The trick to getting the eggs out is to push / slide them out with your thumb. I found it easier to do three at a time. If you do too many and they sit too long they'll be harder to get out of the pan.



Put them on a cookie rack lined with parchment paper to dry for at least one day.

And here they are!



I decided to package them in a cellophane bag. I cut up some brown grocery bags for the background and used my stamps for the lettering. Adding the Easter grass gives the egg fizzies a little nest!



Happy Easter!
