When I was young (way before Harry Potter), I used to love to pretend to create magic potions. I would mix water and food coloring or vinegar and baking soda and watch the reactions. In my imagination, each one had a special power like making my bicycle fly or turning my brother into a frog.
Now, a whole new generation of kids have been inspired to create their own magic potions by the Harry Potter books and movies. Are your kids Harry Potter fans? Why not capitalize on their fascination with potions and use it to teach them a little chemistry?
