What is A Polyjuice Potion?

If your grandkids are Harry Potter fans, you should know a little bit about wizards and potions.

This potion makes the person who drinks it assume the appearance of somebody else. But first, he has to possess a part of his body to add to the brew. It means that in the brew there should be a hair or other part of the person. It is also one of the most difficult and time-consuming potions.

Which color is best for the Polyjuice Potion recipe?

The original potion changes color depending on the person you want to impersonate. It reacts to the nature of the person to be imitated. In fact, when everyone became Harry Potter, the Polyjuice Potion was golden in color.

In the recipe, we use neon-bright green coloring because it is very wizardry and beautiful.

Feel free to use different coloring of your choice. The best option would be natural colorings like beetroot, blue spirulina, turmeric, or mango powder. It depends on the color your want to create.

How to serve a Polyjuice potion?

Because there is Sprite in the potion, it tastes best when you serve it cold and in a tall glass. You can also make small shots of the Polyjuice potion as a welcome drink for your party. Make labels for your food and drinks, it will add to the excitement. And it is fun, too!

To have more bubbling and foam, make the potions right before the party starts. As it tends to dissolve over time.

You know how all the potions have some kind of fumes coming out of them. So, we need a bubbly ingredient. You can easily create this using a dash of vinegar and baking soda. It will create some bubbling out of the glass. Your grandkids will be so excited to see this!

What else do you need for your perfect Harry Potter-themed party?

I’ve really missed the Harry Potter craze. The midnight book-selling parties and movie premieres with fans decked out in costume. Now that the series is finished, there are a lot fewer opportunities to get together with my fellow book nerds and party. Thank heavens for Harry Potter parties!

The theme is wizards and magic, so you need to create this feeling in the atmosphere. It is time to get creative!

Make your home look like Hogwarts using these amazing tips:

  • invitations with wizards and sorting hat elements
  • give your room a wizardry feel
  • make potions and other magical snacks, food, and drinks
  • add an owl element
  • decorate with books of spells
  • use some Harry Potter sticker labels on the bottles of the drinks to make authentic wizardry feel
  • place Harry Potter-inspired labels on the table and try to come up with some witty and magical names for your food and drinks.
  • display your Harry Potter hardcover books
  • have a Harry Potter photo booth with a sorting hat or a magic wand

To set the mood for your Harry Potter party you need to gather everything you have in your house that you can relate to the topic. In fact, it includes all of your Harry Potter hardcover books.

Add an owl element to make the atmosphere more wizardry. For instance, come up with names for your Harry Potter-inspired party food, such as Elixir of Life, Unicorn Blood, and much more. Search the internet for some witty names and print them on cardboards. Put labels next to every one of the food snacks and drinks.

What is a party without any fun games? Undoubtedly, these will make your grandkids busy for a while – creating magic wands and play wizards. For example, have a Harry Potter quiz and entertain your grandkids while drinking a Polyjuice Potion. It is a great way to strengthen the bond with them and have fun together.

Bring some fruits and veggies to the table, too. Your grandkids will like the bright colors and would want to have some.

In Hogwarts, there are secret paths and mysterious things hidden around every corner. You can create this feeling by simply hiding some things and make your guests find them.
