A Happy Little Rainbow Swamp Bath

Aias is obsessed with mixing colours. 

I was at Target in Bellingham, WA yesterday and I stumbled upon a package of these little Crayola Bath Dropz.  I checked them out on EWG and they seemed reasonably benevolent, so I figured sure, why not. My package came with 60 tablets for just $3.39, so I decided they were worth a try.

They are a very simple concept, conventional dye mixed with sodium carbonate, sodium bicarbonate, citric acid, lactose, polyethylene glycol, and mineral oil.  They mix together really nicely, and they fizz.

He really enjoyed them.  I'd probably buy them again. 

He's lined up his smiley little containers and filled them with color drops

Carefully placed red, red + yellow, yellow...

...yellow + blue, blue, blue + red

Ta-da!


I think you are really supposed to give them one or two drops total per bath, just to give the colour a hue.  However, Aias's inner scientist required like 20 drops total.  The bathtub ended up looking like a swamp, but shockingly enough, it didn't stain. Phew.
