WITH toys and bubbles, foams and fizzers, kids love to have a whale of a time in the bath.
But the cost of an evening’s good, clean fun soon mounts up.
Here’s how to let them enjoy a soak for less . . .
BUBBLING OVER: Fizzers are a popular way to make the routine more fun. The Dirty Works Getting Fizzy With It pouch of mini bath bombs is £4 at Sainsbury’s, while at Boots the Beauty Crush trio of fizzers is £4 down from £8. At The Works, you can pick up a Make Your Own Magical Surprise Bath Bomb Kit for £6, down from £12.
FASHION YOUR OWN: You can make your own fizzers by whisking together bicarbonate of soda, cornflour, citric acid and Epsom salt. In a separate dish, mix some base oil, essential oil and food colouring.
Add the oil mixture into the dry mixture just a little at a time, whisking as you go.
Finish by adding a few drops of water and whisk again, until the mixture starts to clump. Pop it into a mould and leave to dry for a few hours. Then drop it in the bath for fizzy fun. See bbcgoodfood.com.
