It’s been over two years since Stella was introduced to Harry Potter. We’ve watched all the movies, read the books, visited the Wizarding World at Universal Studios Hollywood, and have had our share of Harry Potter activities and parties.

 

Here are a couple of our Must-Haves. All are done on a budget!

Activities

Chopstick Wands – an easy activity using Chopsticks, a hot glue gun, and brown/black paint.

Sorting Hat – We use this free printable to create an Origami Sorting Hat activity.

Potions Class – We went to our neighborhood park so the kids could grab potions ingredients – sticks, grass, flowers, etc.  We added those to our cauldron and then added Baking soda, dish soap, and vinegar to create some bubbling fun!

Horcrux Hunt – a simple Scavenger Hunt where participants follow clues to fill in the word “HORCRUX”. We held the hunt at the park so the clues lead to the slide, the swings, the water fountain, etc.
