Fizzy Fairy Potion
💟start brew in different tea cups & pots with purple vinegar water.
💟add ingredients to brew & stir. we used flowers, marshmallows (my girl’s request), & rose petal sugar cubes.
💟once potions are brewed use various droppers to drip into potion bottles filled with a little baking soda at the bottom (when the vinegar water hits the baking soda, you’ve got your fiz!)•
This activity was a hit. So many fine motor skills happening here. Using the tongs to grab the ingredients and then the droppers for the liquid. This activity occupied my girl for 1 hour & I was so impressed with her skill. #schooledbymama#oct_playalong#letsplayatoz_f#steamkidschallenge
This morning, I had a little photography help from my two-year-old and his pumpkin bucket 🎃 so I could share this October @theacciobox with you!
They were super clever and functional with the spooky potions theme (and it’s one of the reasons why I love this subscription box so much). It came with a measuring spoons set that says Potions Master, a vintage-y Felix Felicis t-shirt, an adorable Skelegro enamel pin by @muggle.born.sisters, plus two vegan and cruelty free bath products! Pepper-Up Potion is a shower steamer that helps beat the sniffles and they collaborated with @popsoap to make some potions-scented soaps too (I got the Felix Felicis one!).
You can use my code ‘laurenfairwx’ if you’d like to get 15% off your first box in a month-to-month subscription. I’m an Accio Box rep so I’d make a small commission if you do (I also received this box for free as part of the program). To buy or gift your first box, head over to @theacciobox for more info on where you can snag next month’s box before it sells out - the November theme is Magical Creatures and How to Spot Them and I’m especially excited for it because it’ll be raising money for Save the Chimps with @protegofdn!
Last night at @thecauldronpub was so magical 🧙♀️ It was a great time getting to be a Potions master. Feel like wizard. The “potions” were amazing. I’m not a drinker but they were amazing! Definitely felt quite magical once it was over 🙃🤪 fun time for Sestra’s @bonets_books Birthday. Also loving our temp tattoos so much! #thecauldronnyc#wizard101#potionsmaster#magicalpotions#wizardwannabe
Catching up! Muggle responsibilities are getting the better of me but Day 13 of the #mammamalfoyoctoberchallange is #FavoriteSlytherin ! And while Tom Riddle and Voldemort are definitely up there I would still have to say my fave is the “complicated” Half-Blood Prince - Severus Snape. Though he has many shortcomings, his anti-hero journey is just so intriguing. While he could have treated others better, I have no doubt that he would have done anything in his power to protect Harry and even the other children should real danger arise. Unfortunately he let his past experiences (like being made fun of and bullied by the Marauders) define how he treated Harry and the others on a daily basis and ended up as quite the bully himself. Still there is no denying his magical ability and his deep love for Lily Evans. Perhaps if he had not been so enthralled by the dark arts and the promise of power, they could have maintained their friendship. Lastly - there are no words to describe my deep love for the late great Alan Rickman’s portrayal of this complex character. When I’m old and gray will I still be amazed by it? Always 💚
Just decanted my first batch of homemade mugwort oil. I love that I just happened to have these tiny bottles laying around. A #potionsmaster should always have a spare vial or two on their person for events such as these. #witch#herbalmedicine#flowerpower thanks again @flowerpower_nyc for the wonderful class and for @lowpriestess for asking me to join... #witch
It’s officially potion making season 🔮🍵🌚🦇
Channeling my inner Harry Potter with this bomb 💣 ass book I got at one of the vendor events at convention this year. I mean come on right?! It’s genius 😍 I am such a nerd for Harry Potter and always wanted to make potions growing up. And now, I can!
I personally cannot wait to make some Felix Felicis (Liquid Luck) ⚡️ what kind of ‘potions’ have you made today with our magical plant juice? Are you channel your inner witch/wizard? 🧙🏼♀️
