Parents should have a slew of tricks up their sleeves at all times, and an afternoon spent making “magic” concoctions is the perfect way to cast a spell over creative kiddos. From fizzing and foaming to bubbling and bewitching, we found a few magic potions for kids that can be whipped up in no time, so grab those wands, and click through the gallery below for nine simply spellbinding mixtures.

Fizzy Fairy Fun

Little fairies will love this fizzy potion that sparkles too! We love that you only need five basic ingredients and, of course, a wand for stirring. Get all the details from Anna over The Imagination Tree.
