When we were playing last week making pretend Love Potions at our house, my son suggested we scoop some up and put it in his bath that day – and the idea for this Love Potion Bubble Bath gift bubbled up! Although this is a kids’ activity and gift – I think the labels are nice enough to be used for even an adult gift. Don’t you?

To begin making the bubble bath, we mixed baking soda and vinegar with glitter sparkles in a fun chemistry activity! To check out how that went – click on the picture below or here.
Couldn’t resist including another picture – this was just such a FUN activity!
After we finished our pretend love potion making play (while grooving out to Love Potion #9 by the Clovers!), Onetime had fun scooping tiny amounts of the mixture (mostly just the sparkles and sequins) up into little glass vials we found at the dollar store.
Next, we topped up the vials with some clear store-bought bubble bath. We used the extra-sensitive Sesame Street bubble bath because it is dye-free, paraben-free, and tear-free. Using a baby food spoon, Onetime added a little more glitter to each bottle.
After corking and wiping, I printed off the sheet of love potion labels and directions. The printable sheet has 10 sets of labels and directions in 3 different sizes.
I cut these out and with Onetime’s help, we glued the label on using a glue stick, punched a hole in the direction sheet and tied it on with some white string.

If you wanted to avoid the whole glitter thing (I know some of you can’t stand glitter – admit it!) – you could just have fun adding some baking soda into vials, then using an eyedropper to add a few drops of vinegar and then add some red food colouring along with bubble bath.
That’s it for this week! Hope you enjoy making these adorable gifts for some lucky friends (or partners!)
