So, in the spirit of the sweepstakes, I am going to share one of our recipes for fun! Josiah loves science and arts & crafts, so this one is a bit of both. Recently I shared a post about making bath salts with my son. He had such a great time and it was super easy. All you need is some Epsom Salt, Baking Soda, food color (optional) and an essential/fragrance oil. We used 2 cups at a time of Epsom salt, 2 Tablespoons of baking soda, a few drops of food color and a few drops of essential lavender oil. Just mix them together in a mixing bowl and spoon into containers. We bought some cheap, pretty glass containers and did made two different colors of bath salts to make it look pretty. Then I found some spare ribbon and wrapped it around the lid for decoration, too. These made perfect Valentine's Day gifts for Josiah's teachers, but also made great gifts for pretty much any occasion. There really is no wrong way to make bath salts and you can change things up each time you make them to try something different! This is what made it so much fun. Plus, clean up was easy.
