Believe it or not, this potion play set is safe, edible and flame free. All the bottles and cauldrons are plastic. The candles are LED candles. The potion ingredients are edible except the glittery pumpkins and the plastic creature egg.bPOTION BOOK and SCROLL: get a hard cover book with cream pages at Dollar Tree. Print title and design onto scrapbook paper. Cover book using glue stick and tacky glue. Make a potion page and print onto cream paper for scrolls.
Over the years I have had dozens of parties and I can tell you whether they were for children or adults if there was even one item that was glass, it would get broken. Glass shatters and can dampen the fun fast. My two rules for a carefree party is NO GLASS and NO FIRE. Frogs are gummies. Lacewing flies are raisins. Bat blood is rock n rye cola.
Remove that glossy plastic sheen from the potion lids by spray paint flat black on exterior of lid only. Use a trace of mist from the metallic paints to add a bit of magic. The test tubes did not get spray paint, they still look glossy. Erumpent solvent is vinegar. Gilly water is tap water with a sprig of dill in it. Chamomile is same tea. Sneezewort is ground pepper. Griffin claw is gold cake sprinkles.
I get most of my potion bottles and ingredients from the Dollar Tree. Other stuff I pick up here and there from Kroger, Walmart, Salvation Army, Michaels, the wizarding world, etc. these are the products I use to transform a bottle into a potion. Tip: empty bottles then soak for a day. Label will be easier to remove.
