BATHTIME BUBBLE JELLY
1 envelope unflavored gelatine
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup clear liquid soap or bubble bath
Food coloring (optional)
Plastic jar with lid (such as a peanut butter jar)
Small plastic bath toy
Assorted items to make jar label
Empty the envelope of gelatine into a mixing bowl. Set aside.
With adult supervision, warm water until it begins to boil. Immediately remove water from heat source. Carefully pour the hot water into mixing bowl and gently mix with gelatine powder. Allow gelatine to completely dissolve. This may take a few minutes.
Slowly and gently stir the liquid soap into the gelatine mixture. Add a drop of food coloring and 5 to 8 drops of fragrance oil. Be careful not to stir the mixture too hard or the bath jelly will become foamy.
Pour bath jelly into a clean, clear container. Place a small toy inside the jar as a treat.
Refrigerate bubble jelly until set - about 4 hours.
Using scrap of heavy paper and ribbon, make a fun label for the jar. Attach label to bath jelly jar by punching a hole in one corner of the label. Thread ribbon through the hole on the label, and tie it around the jar.
To use, scoop a small amount of jelly into your hand and hold under warm running water for a bathtime treat.
