To fly, to fly, to soar like a bird,
To make things fly, what shall I do?

And the eyes of a hawk
( Im getting the hang of it now )
A piece of a rotor off a helicopter,
Boil it, bake it,
Then, when the ingredients have dissolved, say these words
Noshi Gamb Shanch Shalaylay.
Then, if someone drinks it, they should fly, ( I hope. )

A Spell For A Happy Life
Mix a little happiness
With a little doubt,
Add a pinch of saddness
To round it all about,
Stir in a little courage,
Pour in a cup of laughter,
Mix in DNA of an unhad family
You'll get a son and daughter
But don't try out his spell right now
It's not for Hallowe'en,
It's quite a different subject
So try it on Hallowe'en Eve!

A warning to nasty children out there
Change your ways or else beware.
For nastiness is mean and cruel,
Making you look like the fool.
To your cauldron add some spice-
Wicked children are made nice.
A pinch of garlic and a dash of clover-
Their days of bullying are over.
A rotten apple and a goldfish bone
To melt their thoughtless hearts of stone.
A little dirt plus mustard seeds,
Now they can only do good deeds.
To finish it off chant three times
All the words of the following lines:
"Nasty children please be good
Only do the things you should"
By Chelsea, age 8, (with help), Canada
Eye of Lizard,
And a spiders leg,
Mix it all with a rotten peg.
And Snakes Oil,
And leave it all to bubble and boil.
Flies heads and a frog, dead,
Toenails taken from a bed.
Stir it well,
Stir it good,
and don't forget the smelly mud.
By Tanichia, aged 8, Southwold Primary, Nottingham, England
Hair bows and

Light as a feather , stiff as a board
Hello, My name is Kaye-Lynn and I am 10 years old.
My friend showed me a spell a couple of days ago and I thought it was preatty cool. The spell is called "light as a feather, stiff as a board"
What you do is get at least five people. Then you go into a room and turn all the lights off in the room and make it dark. Then one person lays on the floor, next another person grabs the person on the floors head, the other gets his legs and the other two grab his sides. Then the people start lifting the person not laughing or anything. But while the people are lifting the person up they have to chant "light as a feather, stiff as a board" Over and over again. Soon the people lifting up the person start to relize that the person they are lifting gets lighter. And if you keep chanting and lifting the person will be so light he's almost touching the celing!!!!!!!!
A few drops of human ears and and a babies sweet tears,
will bring this which to her knees after stirring up such sweet necessities.
If your out on halloween night be sure not to cry and hang on to your
ears for they can be gone in just a matter of years.
By Tiffany, age 14, Franklin, Va, USA
Three strands of hair,

FROGITY QUEENITY DOO

A Flying Spell
Walk in the woods of misery,
On a log, under a tree.
Is the tiny bid of Lee,
Get the bird to tell you where, a red bug flies in the air.
Once you find him catch him there then give him to a witch in despair.
She will give you her black cat.
Give the cat a choclate bar and you will feel like a shooting star.
Your feet will not be on the floor.
Cause you are flying higher than the door.
higher, higher, higher still.
Till you reach the window sill.
There you stop, where you can play,
all you want, all day!
If you want to come down then, clap your hands to the number ten.
A winding staircase will apear, you will walk down, with no fear.
You can repeat the steps again, but this time count to the number 10.
by Jackie, aged 11
