Learn how to make a Pokemon bath bomb with this easy step by step tutorial. By putting a Pokémon toy in them, they make great bath bombs for kids. They will look like they’re actually releasing a Pokemon! It makes for a great gift or simply a fun Pokemon craft!


1 Cup Baking Soda

½ Cup Corn Starch

½ Cup Citric Acid

Essential Oil

Body safe dyes in red and black

Water Putting it in a spray bottle makes the process easier

Small Pokemon figurines (optional)

Plastic fillable ornament or bath bomb mold

Latex gloves



Combine baking soda, citric acid, corn starch, and a few drops of essential oils until you've achieved your desired level of scent.

Divide the mixture into 3 separate bowls, with one bowl containing a little bit less of the mixture than the other two.

In one of the larger bowls, add a few drops of red dye (This is when you can put on the latex gloves and mix it with your hands)

Then gradually add small amounts of water and mix it in until the consistency feels like wet sand.

In the smaller bowl, mix in the black dye and water until it's the same wet sand consistency.

Leave the rest white, but add in the water to make it the wet sand consistency.

Fill in almost half of each of the plastic ornaments - one with red and the other with white. Leave a small and even gap towards the top of the molds.

Then use a spoon and/or your finger to remove a half-circle of the mixture along the edge of each bath bomb mold.

Layer in a stripe of the black bath bomb mixture to each half of the molds and again, make another curve on top of the first ones.

Fill in the curved out area of each half with the white mixture as this is the button of the Pokeball. (If you want to add in a plastic Pokemon, this would be the time to place it in). Press the bath bomb molds together and wipe away any excess mixture.

Carefully remove the molds and leave the the bath bombs to dry for 24 hours.

    Hi, love your idea! Thank you so much for sharing. Don't the colours dye the kids? My grandkids love having a bath when they come to visit (they only have showers at home) but I can't send them home coloured!
