Potion Making Fun in Reception

In the forest garden, children in reception used natural resources like leaves and mud to create their own 'potions'. They mixed ingredients in a bowl and used a pestle and mortar to crush and blend them. Using their senses, they described how the 'potions' looked and smelled, and they imaginatively explained what their potions could 'do', such as turning a teacher into a frog. This activity helped develop their sensory awareness, creativity, and fine motor skills.
