I am always looking for fun activities to do with the girls on the weekends that are also budget-friendly. These Lemon Vanilla Bath Bombs are the perfect mother-daughter activity. It is really easy to do so it is great for all ages(just let an adult or older child do the grating since it is sharp). Also makes your house smell AMAZING!


You could also make Lemon Vanilla Bath Bombs for teachers gifts, a girls spa night with your friends, or a hostess gift for a party you are invited to. However, if you are looking for other mother-daughter activities, be sure to check out 60+ Mother-Daughter Date Ideas.



The perfect mother daughter activity

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1 cup citric acid
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 4 tablespoons oil (coconut or pumpkin)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 3 drops of lemon juice
  • bath bomb mold
