magic potion kit
March 18th, 2013
This, my friends, is what my kids did all weekend (and last weekend and the one before). What are they doing? Making magic potions, of course!
My creative, talented, and lovely friend Helen, and her son, made this amazing Magic Potion Kit. My son was very lucky to receive it for his birthday. It couldn't have been more perfect. Previously my son had been making odd mixtures from glue and dirt and soap and whatever else he could scrounge up. Now he had ingredients never before seen to man, replete with pipettes and giant caldron!
The magic potion kit has all the things a 6 year old could want:
- messy things
- exploding things
- yucky things
- magical things
The magic potion kit also has everything a mother could ever want:
- non-toxic things
- easily clean-up-able things
- cheap and easily replaceable things
- quiet children engaged in creative play
I love how every bit of this gift is handmade, most of it is recycled, and all of it inspires creativity. What more could you want?
