When I first heard that the Key Club was going to do bath bombs on Monday I was immensely curious as to what they were and exactly how they were going to make them.  Then came the question about giving bombs to young children, but, of course, anything that gets them into a bath is probably a good thing, explosive or not.
 
What I learned from our Pine View Key Clubbers is that a bath bomb is loaded with Epsom salts and, "explodes" with fizzy fun when thrown in a bathtub.  (I was much relieved after hearing this explanation.)  So at last Monday's Key Club meeting, they mixed the ingredients, including citric acid and baking soda to make the fizz, and then molded them into balls and put them in plastic bags.  A messy but fun process.   
 
 
Here are two photos of Bath Bomb Day at Pine View.  The bath bombs were donated to Everyday Blessings foster care in Sarasota,

Last Thursday, members of the WES K-Kids club making “tumbleweeds “ for Camp Boggy Creek, a Paul Newman ‘SeriousFun’ camp.  The goal of Camp Boggy Creek is to provide a fun escape for children with serious illnesses, and their families. Boggy Creek gives the children and families a chance to reach beyond illness, and discover joy, confidence, and a new world of opportunities. Camp Boggy Creek is free of charge for the families. 
 
The ‘tumbleweeds’ help to recognize, and reward a camper for doing a good deed, doing something nice for/to someone at camp. The hope is that by the end of the camp session the tumbleweeds will be gone, but the pieces of yarn will have been tied to someone’s lanyard to recognize the good deeds!
 
The K-Kids made 51 ‘tumbleweeds’ at Thursday’s meeting!  This beats the 40 tumble week effort made by Siesta Key Kiwanis members at a recent meeting when they tried their hand a Tumbleweed production.
