FabLab Bath Bomb Kit : Review

FabLab Bath Bombs is a fantastic little set for creative kids. If you children love making potions and crafts, the FabLab Bath Bomb kit will certainly be a big hit.

In this set, you get just enough ingredients to make up to 8 small bath bombs. They are relatively simple to make by following the activity guide and you can try and get creative by mixing the colours together to make duel coloured bath bombs.

What’s included

  • 1 Pot of Sodium Bicarbonate (Blue)
  • 1 Pot of Sodium Bicarbonate (Pink)
  • 1 Pot of Citric Acid
  • 2 Bath Bomb Moulds
  • 1 Pipette
  • 1 Plastic Spoon
  • 1 Measuring Beaker
  • 1 Pair of PVC Lab Gloves
  • 5 Sheets of Pink Tissue Paper
  • 5 Lengths of Red Ribbon
  • 5 Gift Tags
  • 12 Page Instruction Booklet

How it works

In the instruction booklet it will guide you as to how many spoons of sodium bicarbonate and citric acid you will need in order to create your bath bombs. You are to mix together the recommended value of ingredients before squishing the contents inside the little blue bath bomb mould and compacting it all down with the little stick.

Once you have compacted your ingredients down, you should be able to remove the mould and place your cute bath bombs to one side. We found that we couldn’t quite get the consistency of the mixture right first time but played around with the quantities until the mix wasn’t too crumbly.

Once we got the right consistency, the bath bombs worked a treat and the children were very excited to see them finished. It would have been nice if the bath bombs were a little bigger – the children were a little surprised that they would be quite small but they soon forgot about the size once they got making them.

Extra Touch

We loved the idea that you could wrap some of the bath bombs up and give them to family or friends as a little gift. The pack comes with some tissue paper to wrap them up, ribbon to tie them up and little gift tags too.

Overall this is a nice little set that you can sit down and enjoy creating with your children. I would suggest that it’s an activity to do with an adult as it was a little tricky to get the consistency right. However, we all spent a lovely afternoon making the bath bombs ready to use over the subsequent nights.

You can buy FabLab Bath Bombs from all good toy retailers including Argos, John Lewis and Amazon.
