With this great weekly find I found a great recipe for bathtub crayons from Young Living. I know that with summer winding down making days get shorter and our time spent indoors longer this would be a great thing to make so that the bath time struggles are gone leaving just the fun.
These wash off walls and leaves the kids clean. ( I would do a pre test area on the wall to make sure but they should wash off leaving no mess)
DYI bathtub crayon materials:
Essential oil* (We love SleepyIze™, Lavender, Citrus Fresh™, and German Chamomile.)
Cut the glycerin soap into 1-ounce pieces.
Using a small bowl, melt a 1-ounce piece in the microwave for 15 seconds. Continue heating for 3-second increments until the soap is fully melted.
Add 1–2 drops of essential oil.
Pour the glycerin mixture into the mold until it’s almost full. Avoid filling the mold to the brim, so the soap doesn’t spill over.
Add about 10 drops of dye to each individual mold—or as many drops as needed for your desired color—and gently stir to blend in the dye.
Repeat for as many colors as you want.
Let your crayons dry in the molds for 24 hours.
YL TIP: Do you use bath time as another way to help your little one unwind before bed? Pick the perfect essential oils to create a relaxing atmosphere! Be sure to add SleepyIze or Lavender for a calming aroma that will prep junior for bedtime.
