Potions and Milkweed

The neighbor kids came over today and the girls split off and headed out to the yard to find ingredients for a potion. They came back in with a container full of berries, grass, sticky leaf stems, and a really neat, soft pointy pod. I thought it might be milkweed, so to Google images and Wikipedia we went.

I was right! We looked at the plants and talked a tiny bit about Monarch butterflies and then they moved on with their potion.

In progress…they added vinegar, corn starch, paint, and baking powder to the plant mixture.
