OK, OK, I know.... nobody needs a bubble bath reminder... but is fun to have one long, relaxing bath tub right? even if is not with bubbles it still is a good experience that we want to repeat ... but.... a busy lifestyle... other important people in our lives takes priorities over our already tight schedule... and maybe, just maybe... we need a silent reminder of a good old bubble bath .

Step 1: Materials

medium size glass jar with an big opening, (I used a salsa jar) blue and gold paint, tap water, rubbing alcohol, liquid hand soap (not showing) small rubber duck.

Step 2: Materials

napkin holder, candle, lighter, stickers, piece of ribbon.

Step 3: Paint

the outside of the jar lid in gold.

Step 4: Blue

paint will go on the inside of the jar lid.

Step 5: Fill

Fill the jar with tap water. Tip: at this time is good to check that the duck is going to float straight; close the lid and turn it upside down, If it does not float evenly squeeze any water that went inside the rubber duck and glue a penny at the bottom of it preventing water to go inside.

Step 6: Add

a little of rubbing alcohol, to preserve the water.

Step 7: Add

a drop or two of liquid hand soap to make the bubbles.

Step 8: Drop

the small rubber duck.

Step 9: Hold

the jar on the napkin holder by side; light up the candle, and drop some wax around the lid of the jar to avoid any water leakage.

Step 10: Turn

the jar upside down in a rapid movement to hold the duck straight, shake a little to make the bubbles appear.

Step 11: Tie

a ribbon to cover the wax and put some stickers for the finishing touches. Now, put it where you can see it once in a while. Enjoy!
<p>Great!!!! Loved the canddle wax idea! Congrats :)</p>
This is so cute! And perfect for 'just because' gifts! :D Thank you
My 4y old sister's birthday is soon, so I think I'll make it for her. thanks for the idea. I think using hot glue instead of wax is a better idea. It's more resistant.
Yes, I think your little sister will love it, and yes, I think you are right about the hot glue, I didn't think of it. I can say you are smart and generous.
thanks ;)
You are welcome.
My gf and I love doing things then giving small reminders of them afterwards to preserve the memory. I hadn't thought of something like this for an event as simple as a bath. Great idea!
Thank you for your comments. Take care of you both. Care if the one thing every relationship needs. Right?
Silvia You are the best. I LOVE YOU!!!! Fatima
This is the best!! I love making things that have meaning and take little time. Thank you.
I am glad you like it. Thank you for your comment. Have fun1
That looks really cute, I love it!
Thank you ChrysN, I am glad you like it.
I love this. And it never occurred to me that alcohol would preserve the water. I definitely need a bubble bath reminder! What a great gift idea.
Yes, I used it when I made a snow glow for the my daughter when she was a little girl. The only difference with the bubble bath reminder is to glue a mall toy inside the jar lid, fill the jar with water and add some glitter.
What do you mean by preserve the water? The hand sanitizer does contain alcohol..
you are right.!!!!!! Thanks
