Bubbling Magic Potion Recipe

(Activity for practising adjectives!)

For this activity you will need: pens and paper

In this activity children can use their imagination to create a gruesome, list of ingredients to include in a Halloween potion. As a class, they must write a list of ingredients for their potion, making it as evil and disgusting as possible.

Once their is a list of ingredients on the board, the children are encouraged to describe each of the ingredients. For example, instead of simply putting in ‘a spider’, children may want to put in ‘a large, hairy spider’.

Having done several as a class, children should then create their own potions, describing each item they include with different adjectives.
