We set up a potions table and it's a pity we didn't take a picture but there was so much excitement that THERE WASN'T ANY TIME!
water , food colouring, glitter, rose petals, flour, oil and lots of pouring containers, we had glass jars (the spice jars work well.). then we stood back and watched.
We made sure there were lots of little bottles so that everyone could have their own little potion.
We also had labels and encouraged the children to label their potions.
Yes it's messy just how we like it!
Our art studio has never been the same again!
Here are some of their conversations.
"its getting very sticky from the sugar( flour)
"It's icky gooey slimy"
"You need a spoon to mix it , pour it in here. I made brown with lots of colours. I showed E how to make brown.
I am putting lots of colours to make a black potion."
Stay tuned for more maths and science!
We are going to try just oil and water.
