Potions for Winnie!

Winnie the Witch wrote to us for a second time, because Wilbur had spilled over all her potions and she needed our help to make some more!

We mixed a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda with half a jar of water. We then added a little powder paint to give our potion some colour. After that, we added a little squirt of washing up liquid and then poured in vinegar. We were so surprised and excited by our exploding potions!!!

We finished by labelling our potions. Alex made ‘Jungle potion’ and he said that anyone who drunk it would turn into a tiger! Inaya made ‘Mermaid potion’ because she wanted to be a mermaid.
