Daughter has been on a big Harry Potter kick lately, and asked for a Potter Party for her bday. So we did one and did it big! Preparations took months, so this was not a last minute idea. We had been finding items and making decorations since last Halloween.
Invitations came with their own personal owl:
Handmade wands for each person:
Transfigurations Class. Transfiguring plain hogwart pictures into works of art.
Potions class. Experiment #1 with troll bogies (dish soap), unicorn horn powder (glittered baking soda), and dragons blood (red dyed vinegar). Experiment #2 Engorgio spell. (ivory soap pieces in the microwave). Experiment #3 to make your own potions.
Honeydukes Candy Shop:
They all had a blast! And though it was a lot of work, it was worth it. All the kids loved it.
