Following directions has never been more fun and festive with this Witch’s Brew Activity! When I was at the dollar store to look for some fun materials, yes I know this is dangerous, I came across some super fun and creepy Halloween creatures and I had to buy them.At the time I had a few ideas for them, but as I was looking around the Halloween section and saw a few more props, the Witch’s Brew Activity was born! There are quite a few items on this list and I got them all at Dollar Tree. If you do not have a store like this in your area I added a few links to similar products.

You might need to edit the recipe card if you cannot find all the items on the list!
First thing mix 1 cup of water with 1 cup of vinegar and add green food coloring, this will serve as the swamp water!
Next, find an empty spice bottle, or pour all the cinnamon out in to a different container like I did, and cut a black piece of construction paper out and tape it around the bottle. Then write Magic Powder in white crayon. Fill this with baking soda!
Finally, lay out a towel or plastic tray and all the Witch’s Brew Ingredients, don’t forget the recipe card!! Now let the fun begin!!!
If your kids are older, using the Witch’s Brew Recipe Card is a really great way to practice following written directions. But if you little is not ready for they you can read it for them and they can practice following verbal directions, or you can just let them create their own recipe!!!
Add the “magic powder” and watch the magic happen!!
I had my 4 and 5 year old follow the recipe, then I let them create their own!!! The best of both worlds!!!
They had a blast! This might have to be a new Halloween tradition!!!
My almost 2 year old also got in on the action and loved it just as much!!! I just gave her verbal directions and she did a great job!
