My daughter's 11th birthday is in a couple of weeks, and we're having a Harry Potter themed party. I've already sent out invitations in the form of letters from Hogwarts. Lily wants us to do a potions class and make slime, so I thought I'd give all the ingredients esoteric 'magic' names, and claim the resulting slime has some magic properties... Heeeelllp!
Types of slime being considered (I'll probably only do two or three of these):
Soap Slime (get magically clean!)
White PVA (Dragon's Milk?)
Contact lens solution (Unicorn Tears?)
Food colouring (Ruby Extract, Sapphire Extract... etc.)
Shampoo or liquid soap
Cornstarch (Ground Niffler egg shells? kind of cumbersome)
Gold Acrylic Paint
Glitter (Fairy dust, of course! But do different colours represent different properties?)
(Orbeez are tiny little coloured balls, and when you soak them in water they plump up to the size of peas, and are soft and mushy).https://sc01.alicdn.com/---/HTB15kRfPFXXXXcNXpXXq6xXFXXXk.jpg
Extra kudos if you can relate the names to animals/plants/objects from Harry Potter or 'Fantastic Beasts'!
At the end of the party I'll give them the real recipes so they can try them at home.
I'll also have wands for them to decorate, and a selection of Harry Potter themed snacks.....still not sure what to do about the cake! And some themed decor, of course!
