Magic woodland potions

Make a magic potion using natural treasures.

If you go down to the woods today, you’ll find heaps of ingredients to make your own make potion.

  • Collect some mysterious bits and bobs. Can you find a fluffy feather, some scented pine needles, a shiny acorn…?
  • Add water and a little food colouring.
  • Use a special stirring stick to give everything a magic mix…

Now make a wish!
