Bubble Bath Jelly
Packet unflavored Gelatin
3/4 Cup water
1/2 Cup clear liquid soap or bubble bath
Food Coloring (optional)
Plastic jar with lid (e.g. peanut butter jar)
Small plastic bath toy
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!
