Inspired by George’s Marvellous Medicine and Roald Dahl Day, here’s a fun #WhatsInMyTray activity that lets you make your own marvellous medicine with your class, just like George. You can use whatever ingredients you have around the classroom, or shop for the ingredients we used!

You will need…

  • Water
  • Washing up liquid
  • Lemon juice
  • Paint
  • Shaving gel
  • Food colouring
  • Ironing water
  • Flour
  • Oil
  • Sequins
  • Glitter

What to do…

  • Ingredient by ingredient, add to your medicine.
  • Try exploring with ingredients with different textures, smells and colours to make your medicine more exciting
