My kids absolutely LOVE making this soap dough and playing with it! It’s a cool way to make your own Lush Fun homemade playdough that turns into bubbles. Since my kids LOVE bubble bath I always have Johnson’s Bubble bath on hand and the other ingredients in my cupboard.

To make this Lush Fun copycat playdough recipe you’ll need Johnson’s Baby Bubble Bath, corn starch, coconut oil and food coloring or liquid watercolors. I found all of these supplies at Walmart. The Johnson’s baby bubble bath was in the baby aisle near the baby bath and shampoo.

Involve your kids in making this bath playdough recipe too! It’s as much fun to make, as it is to play with. Begin by adding 1/4 cup Johnson’s baby bubble bath to a small bowl. Mix in the coconut oil and stir well.

Once combined, knead together with your hands. Slowly add in more cornstarch until desired consistency is reached. If you add too much corn starch, simply add a little bubble bath to it in order to reach the right consistency.

To use, give your child a small amount of copycat Lush Fun bath play dough to play with in the tub. It will become bubbly when it gets wet. They can form shapes with it, wash with it or whatever they like!

Don’t give them too much bath play dough in the tub though! It will disintegrate in the water but you don’t want large amounts of it in the tub. It smells amazing and they’ll get clean while they play! It’s the first time my kids have gotten cleaner, rather than messier when playing with homemade play dough!

  1. Making dough with kids is almost as much fun as playing it. I’ve never seen a recipe using bubble bath before. This looks too cool!

  2. What a fun idea. My 11-year old still loves to take baths. I bet she’d love to play with this stuff. I’ll show her this post and we’ll make it together.

  3. This is such a neat idea. I have done salt dough with my kids before but never thought to do a soap dough. I bet the bubbles make it extra fun!

  4. My kids would love this! Bath time is already a fun time for them because they love playing in the water, so this would just add to the fun.

  5. Oh this is something me and the 5 year old will do tomorrow. I shouldn’t have any problems getting her in the tub after this 😂

  6. I think playing with play dough is one of the most relaxing things. Add some soothing scent to it and it’s just perfect. This would be a great calming activity for my little guy in the evening.

  7. I need to make the Lush Fun Copycat Bubble Bath Playdough Recipe for the kids this summer! They are out of school tomorrow and they would have so much fun making their own playdough!

  8. This looks really easy to make! My grandsons would have so much fun playing with this! Great idea!

  9. Love this idea. Can you make and store in a mason jar to give as a gift with ingredients? Or do you have to use the play dough the same day it’s made?

  10. We’ve just made about a kilo of this, after the toddler was given some Lush playdough in a party bag.

    It’s great play material, but literally half a kilo (admittedly in an adult depth bath, yes made with Johnson’s), and not a bubble in sight.

  11. How long does it last do you have to keep making every other day are can you make a bunch of it and store it in an air tight container to last awhile like weeks just asking

    1. No, you don’t have to make it every day. You can definitely store it for awhile in an airtight container and just take out a little at a time.

    1. I haven’t tried any other types but let us know if you try another! I’m not sure what else would act like coconut oil for this recipe.

  12. I have never tried a bubble bath for my 2-year-old. This looks like so much fun. I should try this sometime. Thank you for linking with us @ #HomeMatters party.
