Oatmeal cinnamon milk bath

Standard

As part of my volunteer role with the Girl Guides this year, I have been on the lookout for simple, easy, but original ideas for the girls. When we thought of having a spa night for the girls, I searched for a few recipes that would be inexpensive, and simple. So, here is the first recipe in our spa theme that the girls will be making as a gift for Mother’s Day. As usual, Dylan or Sam gets to test out many of my new lesson or recipe ideas….before I try it with a group of 20!

As you can see, I bought everything from Bulk Barn. I love that place!

I modified the recipe in terms of quantities because I needed enough ingredients for 21 girls, but I also want each girl to measure and mix her own ingredients.
So I bought the following quantities (which is enough to make 24 baths!) 6 cups of powdered milk, 3 cups of baking soda, 1/2 cup of ground oatmeal, 6 tsp of cream of tartar, 12 tsp of corn starch, 6 tep of cinnamon.
But, if you were only making enough for one batch, you would need: 1/4 cup of powdered milk, 2 tbsp of baking soda, 2 tbsp of ground oatmeal, 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar, 1/4 tsp corn starch, 1/4 tsp cinnamon.
I started by tossing the oatmeal into the food processor, and grinding it a little finer. I also saved a few larger pieces to sprinkle on top.

The instructions are really pretty simple, we tossed everything into a container, and shake it baby, shake it all you can, shake like a milkshake, and put it in a can… or just give it a quick stir, whatever works for you… Sam, as you may have guessed chose to shake vigorously…

That’s it. The most challenging part is to package it up so it looks pretty. You could put it in a pretty bag with a drawstring, or a mason jar. For the girls, we will be storing them in plastic containers. I printed out labels for the containers, then we will put everything in a cellophane bag.
I will post the other two recipes, for Berry Good Lip Gloss, and Lemon Sugar Body Scrub.

Happy early mom’s day! -I will try to post the next recipe and instructions tomorrow.
