Color inside labels with crayons. This is where you can REALLY get the kids to spend some time. Challenge them to “match” their label to the effects of their potions, pick colors that will complement their potions, go for an aged look, go mod……. Here we just did some very basic scribbles.
Fill jars with liquids. Here also is a great time user-upper (is that a word?) Now just imagine this – a Harry Potter party with beverage served in the potion bottles. Make regular lemonade and color it different colors for each potion. Or put “oddities” in the jars, like berries, herbs, slices of fruit. Add carbonated beverages so the bubbles around the top look like foam. Use food coloring to make something DELICIOUS look DISGUSTING and dare the kids to see who tastes it first.
There is no end to how much fun you could make happen with these simple Harry Potter potions bottles! Give them a try!!
Don't forget, it's not just me sharing Harry Potter crafts this week. Laura, from Me and My Inklings, teamed up with Lindsey from Artsy Fartsy Momma, to bring you call kinds of Harry Potter crafts – AND we invited over a dozen of our friends to do the same. See the projects here.
