There’s nothing like a good bowl of witches brew to LIFT THE SPIRITS! So stay for a SPELL and check out the video below for a fun song that your little ghosts and goblins will go BATTY for! Then head to your own CAULDRON and conjure up some witches brew with the ingredients I have listed below. Enjoy this spooky snack at your own risk! Witches brew is known to turn kids into creepy creatures, parents into paranormal spirits and teachers into Transylvania blood suckers!
Get creative with your choice of ingredients….I’ve mixed up some salty and sweet treats for our brew, but you can certainly create other “gross” ingredients from the items in your pantry or by visiting the grocery store snack aisle. It’s a great opportunity for your kids to “think outside the box” !!!
For this recipe I used:
blue corn chips=bat’s wings
red licorice=bloody worms
cheese curls=rotten bones
gum drops=spider’s eggs
chocolate chips=witches warts
mini marshmallows=ghost’s guts
yogurt covered raisins=pigeon poop
sliced almonds=witches nails
kale chips=dried frog skin
Kale is one of the most nutrient dense vegetable you can consume! Dried kale chips are flavored, crunchy and a great substitute for salty, greasy potato chips! And these looked perfect for our witches brew. The color and texture makes great “dried frog skin” !!!!!!!!!!
Have your kiddos add the ingredients to a plastic cauldron. Ask them to add them in an ordered sequence and see how many they can remember!
Each card has an ingredient used in this week’s recipe. Cut out and laminate the cards for durability. Distribute cards evenly among all student in the group. Ask student to read the card, using proper grammar tense for HAVE and HAS. For non-readers, model the correct tense and have them use the pictures as cues. This activity also reinforces good “WH” question formation and LISTENING SKILLS.
Cut a slit at the top of the pot and adhere it to a piece of construction paper. Be sure to leave a space at the top to remove all the cards. Students pick a picture from the pile and say.: “I put spider eggs in my witches brew.” The picture is then added to the slit at the top of the pot. The next student picks a picture and must remember the previous item plus their own. “I put spider eggs and bat wings in my witches brew.” Play continues as long as students can keep remembering all the items being added to the pot.
