Let's make Bubble Playdough

It’s TGI-DIY!!! Let’s make Bubble Playdough!

It’s always fun to find a DIY project to do with the boys when we’re together.

Today we made Bubble Playdough. I found several different recipes, but what we ended up adapting was the simplest of the bunch. Both of the boys got to pick out their oils. Ben chose Island Mint and Wes used Balance. 

Wes is currently in the tub playing with his and lasting a surprisingly long period of time. 


  • 1/4 cup natural Bubble Bath
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 5-6 drops of doTERRA essential oils
  • Soap colorant (optional)

In a small bowl combine bubble bath & coconut oil. Add 1/2 cup cornstarch and essential oils & soap colorant if using; work together. Knead with your hands and add in more cornstarch until it reaches the desired consistency. We had to add in a little more cornstarch to get it to a play-dough consistency. 

We didn’t have any colorant, so we just skipped it. If I was making this for a gift, it would be fun to make a couple different colors. Store in jar or other airtight container. 

To use, give child the desired amount of bubble playdough to play with in the tub. It gets bubbly when it gets wet and disintegrates.   Kiddos can form shapes with it, wash with it — whatever they’d like

Choosing calming oils like Balance or lavender are perfect for nighttime baths – calming and relaxing before bedtime!

Need oils for this project? I’d recommend the Aromatouch Diffused Set – 8 oils (including several perfect for this project), a diffuser, fractionated coconut oil, plus some extraordinary perks: a 25% discount for an entire year, a fab welcome gift from me, access to our exclusive private education groups, and a lot more! I love helping people learn about the hundreds of uses for this set!
