Witches potion - messy play!
This is a good Halloween messy play activity! We made a cauldren in the garden from plant pots - if you have an old pot or a real cauldren then that would be even better!
The "ingredients" I provided were all different textures/smells/colours. We had - paprika, purple glitter, cinnamon, pink paint, mustard seeds, rice and a few other spices!
We poured some water in to the "cauldren" and I let her add the ingredients one at a time! We discussed what they smelled, looked and felt like. Also what affect the ingredients had on the potion in terms of colour/smell.
There was much fun had with this activity! Sang the witches of Halloween song, talked about what the potion would do! "Turn you in to a frog" was the decision!
We added grass, leaves and flowers too, just to make it extra specially magic!
