Yesterday afternoon the children were playing with a marvellous craft kit I found at our local charity shop for £2.
It consisted of five sheets of parchment, a quill pen and a bottle of red ink marked ‘dragon’s blood’.
They made one hell of a mess. Tilly’s hands still look like she has been partaking of a little light butchery.
They had a wonderful time though.
Tallulah created a recipe for an ‘Exploding Potion’ and then aged it, by scrumpling the paper into a ball and jumping up and down on it.
The squiggles are blood stains, where presumably, whatever she administered the potion to, exploded.
Here is what it says. All spelling is the potion mistresses own
A piegons feather,
A doggys heart,
A gust of wind,
A beam of sun,
And a chinchillas big fat bum.
Put them into a bowl and say exsploe exsplode, boom
