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
- To use, scoop a
small amount of jelly into your hand and hold under warm
running water for a bubbly bath-time treat!
