Halloween is just a few days away and thought I would set up a "Potion Play" area. I took advantage our great weather and took the project outside so I didn't have to worry about a mess. This is a plan ahead activity as I had to make the molds and let them dry completely out before using them.
First things first. Grab some molds. I found these 60% off at Micheal's. Feel free to pick up what ever you like! Mix 1 cup of baking soda with 1/3 cup of water and mix together. It will come together just enough to shape into the molds.
I also had some food coloring so I sprayed the brains and witch molds black and added a bit of red to the fangs. As you can see, I did not let my bones dry out completely. Don't be like me :) #patience. I also found some Halloween add-ins just to make things a bit more interesting.
I had some beakers that I purchased last Halloween and test tubes, but any clear container will do. Vinegar is in the test tubes, water is in the two cups and food coloring is in the three little containers.
Now we create! Adding colors and vinegar to beakers, he created for at least 45 minutes! Would have been longer had I had more vinegar.
A few notes.
Here is where you can find where I am popping up next!
