Treat your kids to a day at the witch spa – a fun book accompaniment to the Boo-La-La Witch Spa Book.
Book accompaniments are something that I have always seen on Pinterest but never actually done with my kids, until now. Another blogger that is in one of the social groups that I belong to posted the other day that her girls had been loving this book.
So of course I had to get it and read it to my kids. My daughter and I love a good book, especially if it has to do with Halloween.
After reading this book once, we knew that a Boo-La-La witch spa book activity was in order. It was a really easy and inexpensive way to bring the book to life and my 5 year old had tons of fun getting to participate in these witchy spa treatments.

Boo-La-La Witch Spa Book Activity
The book is basically about a witch that is overworked and stressed after a busy Halloween night (sounds like a mama I know after a Monday). It is a really cute book with nice illustrations.
We had lots of giggles and fun by acting out some of the fun experiences that the main character did during her spa day.
Dollar Tree Supplies
I spent about $5 getting the supplies for this Boo-La-La Witch Spa Book Activity from the Dollar Tree. It is awesome because you can find tons of stuff that you already have at home to make this witchy spa day more fun.
Here is the list of things that I used. Some of these were bought & some we had already.
- Black Nail Polish
- Bag of Candy Corn
- A 4 pack of Pudding Cups
- Blue Hair Highlight Kit
- A can of pumpkin
- Makeup Brush
- Plastic Spiders
Witch Spa Activities
To start this boo-la-la witch spa book activity, we got our copy of the Boo-La-La Witch Spa. We decided to read through the book do our activities as the little witch in the book did them. Here are some ideas for things that we did.
Set the Witchy Spa Mood
We lit candles to help us start to relax and give us some mood lighting.
A Candy Bar
I set out a little dish of candy corn and pumpkins that we snacked on.
Next we had some spooky tea (apple cider).
A broom facial with a makeup brush.
The pumpkin mask did not go over well. You know when you go to a cute Pinterest inspired birthday party and all of the food is named to go with the theme? Well, she is not eating anything that sounds weird. Same thing for this mask. She let me dab it on and then she wanted it off. And fast.
We used the plastic spiders that I got at the Dollar Tree to do a head rub.
A spooky sauna was created in our bathroom thanks to the help of shower steam.
A yummy candy corn dessert was a nice way to break up our spa day. We used a vanilla pudding cup and candy corn. Even little brother joined in on this part!
I even found a highlight kit at Dollar Tree so she got some temporary highlights! (They washed right out)
Our last spa event was at our in home nail salon. I painted her nails black and we added silver glitter for the “Stars.”
