My kids are absolutely enthralled with the kind of bath bombs that have toys in them and it’s 100% my fault. When you have three kids that each wants one, that gets expensive, real quick, even if it’s just for once a week. So today we’re making our own and I was lucky enough to be able to have my girls help me on video! We are mixing up a few simple supplies all from Brambleberry.com to create fabulous rainbow toy surprise bath bombs, that are sure to make bath time a little more fun in our house and yours.
Fun Experience 2x
Not only will your kids get the actual bath bomb experience, but you both get the experience of making them too. Even though we have plenty in the bathroom for bath time, Hadley is now regularly asking me to make them, which of course I can’t say no to.

How To Make Toy Surprise Bath Bombs:
Submerge & See
After the bath bomb is submerged for around 2-3 minutes, it will reveal it’s special toy. I feel like any toys that are small enough to fit well inside the disk molds will work…
I picked up a few packs of the Safari LTD Good Luck Minis at my local Michaels as they were the perfect size for being hidden in these bath bombs. I used the safari, ocean, baby animals, and fantasy themed packs. They are also available on Amazon.
