Magic potions are a great way for kids to explore how different ingredients interact. Whether you are throwing a wizard themed party, trying out a new Halloween trick, or looking for a new bedtime treat, there's a magic potion to fit the occasion. Fortunately, the supplies for a basic at-home magic potion can be secured at a grocery store.

An edible magic potion is an effective tactic for getting kids involved with cooking. Children can name the potion, which will ultimately be a soup, and help pick out each of the ingredients. For example, a magic growth potion might require several green vegetables in its mixture, including peas and broccoli. While making the potion, an adult should help by setting up a large, cauldron-like pot on the stove. Other supplies for this magic potion include spices and a magic wand that can be used to tap the pot as the potion cooks.


With the right additives, almost any drink can be turned into a magic potion for kids. Some useful supplies include marshmallows and chocolate chips for warm drinks, and colourful pre-made ice cubes or dry ice for cold drinks. Cinnamon sticks can be used as mini wands to stir the drinks before sipping. Serving the drinks in opaque cups or mugs helps to keep the potion mysterious, which adds to the fun.


A mixture of water, baking soda and vinegar creates a bubbling, foamy magic potion that can amaze children. The bubbles happen as a result of the vinegar combining and reacting with baking soda. These three supplies are not only easy to locate, but they also have several other household uses, which makes them handy. Add a few drops of food colouring to the mix to create a custom potion.


In addition to a big black cauldron, there are a few other supplies that can make a homemade magic potion more convincing. Recycled jars and small glass bottles can be used for storage. An ice cube tray can be used to freeze drinkable potions so that they can be revived at a later date.
