How to Make a Shrinking Potion

The Shrinking Potion

Is there someone you would like to shrink?

If so you will need some sparkles from a blue ladybird.
White powder from a vanishing zombie.
A fragment of tooth from the Lochness Monster.
An eyeball from a Green Tree monster.

On the night before Halloween you will need to gather in a silent cave with the ingredients for the potion.

Sit in a circle around a fire in the cave with a frying pan and a round table.

When the frying pan is about to explode from heat, add all of the ingredients.

Mix them together, they will go cold. Then put your hand in the potion and you will be able to make a bubble.

Put the bubble into a bottle.

After 1 year your potion will be ready to use.

You will need to put it into someone’s cup of tea and wait for 2 minutes after they have drunk it. Then they will shrink to the size of a grain of sand.


Good luck with your shrinking potion.
