I had such an awesome time making these glow in the dark bath bombs, but the kiddo? Called them “wicked cool” and insisted that share them immediately!
Glow in the Dark Bath Bombs
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we have a great time making fun projects with the kiddo. And when she asked to make something glow-in-the-dark, well, of course bath bombs that glow in the dark came to mind! We make bath bombs together all the time (it’s part of how I keep bath time and thus bed time smooth as buttah at our house). And making these was just a foregone conclusion!
I mean, I was obsessed with glow in the dark things when I was a little kid, so it totally makes sens that she’d want something–anything–that glows. It’s almost magic. And making it go a little fizzy…wow. If you’re ready to blow your kid’s mind, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Kid-safe Glow-in-the-dark Bath Bombs
- My basic bath fizzy rule of thumb is that when your glow in the dark bath bombs are hard to the touch, you are ready to take them to the tub! If you’re not going to rush them all to fizz, be sure to store in an airtight container–you don’t want them to lose their fizzy before you’re ready.
- Never ever use food coloring in any of your bath bombs, for the love of everything. You’ll certainly have colorful bath bombs, but it could stain your tub and your skin and your hair…
- Mold this recipe in any flat-backed design so they will be safe for use as coffee shower fizzies, too. I love using the extra mix for this.
- If your bombs have a tendency to crumble, check out my tips on trouble-shooting bath bombs and shower fizzies.
- Let these GITD bath bombs dry for at least 24 hours to get the most fizz–or 48 hours if you live somewhere humid or chilly. Plus, if there’s a little mix-up in your mix and it is wetter than needed, drying bath bombs overnight will usually work that out.
- To activate the glow of your bath bombs, just hold one under a light (natural light is best) for about 30 seconds then get into a dark room. The bath bomb will glow brightly after a few seconds. If you want the bath bombs to glow even brighter, hold them under a black light after exposing them to regular light.
