White Crisco

Interesting/magical pot

Tiny vials of premeasured or small mysterious-looking bottles of Kool-Aide powder.

Chalk Board


Mix 2 to 3 tablespoons of Crisco (depending on size of eventual container it will go into. A film canister or other tiny plastic container with a screw-on lid is best) with 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of powder in a very small “cauldron”.

Heat in microwave JUST until Crisco melts (must be adult supervized as it can catch fire if over-heated). Could also be melted in mixing containers over double-boiler.

Pour into final containers and allow to cool.
