Unicorn Dreams - Kids Fizzy Bath Soak Workshop

This morning activity is just what you need to "spring" out of this cold weather!

Our popular Fizzy Bath Soak Workshop is back! Our theme this time was inspired by berry aromas and unicorn dreams!

Fizzy Bath Soak - a deconstructed bath bomb but WAAAAYYY better. Unlike a traditional bath bomb, you can add as much or as little to your bath, getting more than one use! As always, your child will be able to express their creativity with a little teamwork to create an 8oz product worthy of any bath time experience!

Adults are welcome to participate!

Parents with children 2nd grade and up, drop them off and grab breakfast and a coffee next door at Dough and Joe!

Space is limited to 10 participants! A minimum of 6 participants are needed to hold this class. In the event that there are not enough to hold the class, a full refund will be given. If the class is held, all sales are final. No refunds on cancellations as supplies are purchased.
