I’m always looking for ways to keep the kids entertained in the bath and this bubble bath play dough is so much fun. Try it out at home today.

How to make your own bubble bath play dough

Image source: Pinterest



  • 1/4 cup of bubble bath
  • 1/2 cup-3/4 cup corn flour
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
  • essential oil (optional)
  • colouring (optional)


  1. If you are using colouring or essential oil, mix in a bowl with the bubble bath.
  2. Add the coconut oil.
  3. Add 1/2 cup of corn flour and knead until it forms a ball. You can slowly add the extra 1/4 of a cup if needed.
  4. Your playdough is ready, store it in a sealed container ready for use.
  5. Give your child one tablespoon ball of playdough and watch them be amazed at the bubbles appearing in the bath!

Please note this will make the bath slippery if you give them too much.

  • I’m fully willing to try this, but wouldn’t the cornflour make a gooey mess? Like a flour and water paste mix. Hmmm, not sure


  • Sounds like it’d be messy but I like it


  • I need to give this a go, my daughter will have fun helping me and an even better time enjoying using it


  • We love this in this house and it has made bath time fun again


  • So cool! I am concerned about the use of cornflour though. Wouldn’t that make the bath murky? I know when you mix water and cornflour the cornflour often sits on the bottom quite hard


  • What a great idea and definitely different, thanks so much!


  • What an absolutely fabulous idea. Thanks so much. I know a little munchkin who will love this in the bath. Only problem will be getting her out!


  • What a truly ingenious idea. My problem would be getting them out of the bath


  • This is a fantastic idea. I would like to know how the author came up with the recipe.


  • I’ll be able to entertain my grandchildren in the bath now!


  • Such an awesome idea can’t wait to try it out with my son.


  • What a fantastic idea! I have never heard of this before


  • what a cool idea!


  • My kids love bubbles, but often I just want them clean and out so I bath the next one!


  • This sounds like it would provide lots of fun for children.
