Bath Bottles (Christmas Gifts)
We use Epsom Salt a lot during play time. It's a great addition to a sensory bin/table. You can keep it plain white for some fun "Christmas Snow". It has a nice sparkle to it so it's great for this time of year. We made a few colored batches this morning to stock up for Christmas crafts.
It is also wonderful on the light box. See HERE
All you need is a bag of Epsom Salt and some food coloring. We purchased our epsom salt at Walmart.
Pour the salt into a container. You can also use a plastic bag if you don't want to get your hands dirty.
Add food coloring
Mix together. That's it!
All ready for some craft time fun! We placed these buckets in our art corner. I have quite a few "projects" lined up for them. Stay tuned. :-)
Here is the first one we did.
Layering salt into bottles.
They loved watching this fall down! My oldest is obsessed with sand timers so she was loving this.
We also added some peppermint essential oils. You only need 1 drop of oil per 1 cup of epsom salt. If you want you can add more. You will be able to smell how strong you want it! We just need some ribbon and a tag and it is all set to go!
