Uncovering the witches' secret recipe is the task in this uproarious party game.
To set up, each child will need his or her own color-coded, matching set of ingredients made from construction paper. The number of ingredients and copies should match the number of children attending, for example: Child No. 1 has eight green copies of one toad, child No. 2 has eight brown copies of five vulture feathers, and so on.
With double-sided tape, affix seven copies to each child's back (the eighth is his or hers to hold) and set out a pot (a cast-iron soup pot is perfect).
On the whistle, the players must try to protect their own backs while trying to pull off one ingredient from each of the other players. The first to collect all eight ingredients then runs and puts them in the pot, completing the witches brew.
