Halloween craft: Witches Brew

3 Sep 2021 | All, Inspirational Activity Ideas, Nursery and Early Years

To help you with your craft making this Halloween, our brand rep @my_three_little_strawberries has put together a simple, witch inspired activity for you to follow.  Simply make sure you have everything you need from our list below and get crafting!

Witches Brew 

You will need:

  • Paper Plates
  • Glitter
  • Paint Sticks
  • Scissors
  • Cotton Wool
  • Craft Sticks
  • Wiggly Eyes
  • Silver Marker Pen
  • Black Card

What to do:

1. Take a paper plate and use paint sticks or ready-mix paint to colour the front black.

2. Once dry, cut a shallow ‘U Shape’ from the top of the plate, this will be the top of your cauldron.

3. Take a piece of coloured card to be your background and position your paper plate over it, use this to decide where the feet of your cauldron need to sit. Make the feet by cutting 2 shapes out of black card.

4. Stick your feet to your backing paper and stick the paper plate over the top.

5. Use some cotton wool to create your bubbling potion, steaming out the top – use PVA or a glue stick to stick in place. Add some eyes, glitter and other decorations to make your potion as spooky as possible. At this point, also use a craft stick to act as your soon and glue in place.

6. Take the piece of paper plate you previously cut out and glue this around the top edge of the cauldron to form a ridge.

7. The base of your cauldron craft is now complete! Simply add decorations such a glitter or foil shred to add those perfect finishing touches.

We’d love to see the finished result! Once you and the little ones have completed the craft, take some photos, and tag us on Instagram or tweet us @hope_earlyyears. You can also share with us on Facebook at Hope Education UK.

Nature based maths activities for EYFS

When looking at Maths, it can be linked with natural resources in a way that is reflective of a forest school approach, but can also always be done on a smaller scale with a play table or play tray. When in nature we can gather leaves or twigs to count and compare. Indoors, we may have resources to hand that we can count, add, subtract and compare, or bring home the leaves and twigs from your woodland adventures.
