Magic Potion Fizzy Powder

Magic Potion Fizzy Powder

Magic potions are one of my boys' favourite nature craft activities! There is just something about mixing all the ingredients, smelling the scent of the beautiful florals, adding sparkly glitter and then seeing it all fizz up when you add water!

The cornflour in this recipe is optional, but it does help to prolong the fizz (= fun), so definitely go ahead and add some in if you have it available. Also feel free to add essential oils if you and your kids like them, e.g. a calming lavender essential oil in a blue potion with lavender and rose petals or add invigorating lemon/grapefruit essential oil to a pink potion with calendula and cornflower petals.

For this activity, I suggest you lay out all the ingredients, including measuring cups and stirring spoons and then let the kids mix together their own potions in different colours and with different florals etc. If you have a variety of bowls, so they can scoop and divide the mixtures, it's even more fun. They can then slowly add the water and watch what happens.
Their imaginations can roam free here - why not think about a spell to invite happiness, love or bravery?
