What is Potion Play?
Potion Play is a water activated sensory play material used to spark creative, open-ended play. Each pouch contains a special affirmation to help kids build confidence and engage in mindful, magical play.
How should my child use Potion Play?
Potion Play is an open-ended activity developed to build confidence and creativity.
You can start by reading the positive affirmation spell on the back of the pouch with your child. Talk about how the affirmation makes them feel and how they want to incorporate it into their potion.
Have your child add a few spoonfuls of the Potion Play mixture to a bowl or bucket, add water and watch your potion bubble and sparkle.
Kids can extend their Potion Play experience by adding more ingredients (flower petals, rocks and other bits of nature make great magical additions).
Potion Play can also be frozen after use to be used for another sensory play activity.
What age is Potion Play for?
We recommend Potion Play for ages 3+ and always with adult supervision.
Because children’s abilities vary so much, even within age ranges, adults should exercise discretion as to if Potion Play is suitable for their child.
Potion Play Safety
Potion Play is recommended for use under adult supervision.
Potion Play is designed to be a fun magical experiment, but the ingredients (citric acid and sodium bicarbonate) can be harmful if used incorrectly.
Avoid contact with sensitive skin. We recommend using a spoon to scoop and stir potions. If irritation occurs, discontinue use.
Avoid contact with eyes. If direct contact occurs, immediately rinse with cool running water and seek medical advice.
What ingredients are used in Potion Play?
Each Potion Play pouch contains 100g of:
Citric acid, sodium bicarbonate, bioglitter and the following plant-based colour powders:
Bravery Spell - spirulina
Silly Spell - annatto
Love Spell - beetroot
Calm Spell - purple corn
Wish Spell - no colour added
If irritation occurs, discontinue use.
Please note Potion Play is manufactured in a facility that may contain common allergens, such as dairy, eggs, soy, tree nuts or peanuts. While we do our best to ensure a clean production space, cross contamination may occur.
How many potions does one pouch create?
It is completely up to you! Our Potion Play pouches have a re-sealable zipper. Use a few spoonfuls (a little goes a long way!) and save the rest for another play session or use the entire pouch for dramatic fizzing bubbles.
Can Potion Play be used in the bath?
While Potion Play is made with natural ingredients and does contain the same ingredients as most bath bombs, we do not recommend it for bath time due to the added bio-glitter. Glitter + bath time can get messy!
Where can I dispose of Potion Play?
Our Potion Play is made with natural ingredients, including bioglitter that has been designed to biodegrade quickly and safely in natural freshwater environments. When you are finished with your Potion Play, you can safely pour the mixture down the sink.
Does Potion Play stain?
We colour our Potion Play naturally with plant-based dyes, including beetroot, spirulina, annatto and purple corn. Potion Play is MESSY and we recommend setting up a covered area indoors or sending kids outside to play. Potion Play may stain porous surfaces.
