Do you have a favorite Halloween movie? I don’t really. I’ve never seen Hocus Pocus (gasp, I know!) but I enjoy Practical Magic or what I can remember of it, but I don’t really have a favorite. I’ll be honest and say I don’t even remember any other Halloween movies besides the scary, and common ones that include Jason or Michael Myers. None of which are appropriate for kiddos (at least not mine!). When I think of Halloween movies I think of witches, and of course witches brew!
So today, we’re talking about Witches Brew! Making your own at home! It’s pretty simple, kids love it and it’s a ton of fun! I’ve never thought of making it myself. There was a couple places back home we could go to around Halloween to get it – and my kids LOVED the dry ice!
- Light colored juice
- Clear carbonated beverage (soda water, sprite, 7-up)
- Green food color
- Candy body parts (These are from Target)
- Dry ice
- In a large clear punch bowl or similar container pour juice and carbonated beverage. Add food color and candy parts. Only add dry ice when ready to display/serve. Length of time for fog depends on the size of your dry ice chunk.
- Replace ice as needed.
I think making up fun little note cards to go with the brew would be a lot of fun for kiddos. Maybe explaining what witches brew is and giving a little history, and maybe even have a bowl while watching your favorite Halloween flick!
“a potent magical concoction supposedly prepared by witches. A harmful or threatening mixture; diabolical concoction: a witches‘ brew of innuendo and rumor.“
Do you think you’d enjoy some Witches Brew for your Halloween party or get together?
