ACE and RILEY DIY Bath Bombs
The fizziness of bath bombs comes from the chemical reactions that happen when the baking soda and citric acid come into contact with water.
Constructing bath bombs is a fun way to learn about chemical reactions while making bath time more enjoyable.
Fizzle My Bizzle will teach foundational skills around chemical reactions, including what happens when baking soda quickly dissolves and the positively charged sodium (Na+) breaks apart from negatively charged bicarbonate (HCO3-), while the citric acid also dissolves with a single hydrogen ion (H+) separating from the rest of the molecule.
Add essential oils and food colouring to create various scents and colours.

- Food- and skin-safe ingredients to make 3 medium-sized bath bombs
