Make Your Own Magic Potion Recipe

For today’s activity you will come up with your own imaginary illness and create a magic potion recipe for it.  Here is an example of what your magic potion can look like…

Your magic potion needs to cure a funny illness. So try to come up with something really silly.  For example…

  • your hair won’t stop growing
  • you cluck like a duck everytime you try to say ‘hello’.
  • your foot has grown claws
  • you smell like a wet dog for no reason

Your magic potion cure could include any magical ingredients you can dream up.  For example…

  • the tongue of a walrus
  • a piece of a cloud
  • the flower from a magical money tree
  • the heart of an ant

You can either write down your magic recipe or you can draw it like in the picture above.  If you email me your magic potion recipe cures I will post them below! b.ruel@theojcs.ca
