Honestly I can’t believe it’s been 20 years since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was published. It might be because I didn’t actually read the books until the first movie was about to be released and I really wanted to know what the whole *muggle* and *wizard* thing was all about. That, and I seriously wanted to figure out what Quidditch was.
While I didn’t grow up on Harry Potter, my youngest brother did. He was one of the kids who could read, but didn’t like to – but once he got his hands on Harry Potter he read everything in sight! My mom was the one who suggested that I read the books to see what he was talking about and I’m really glad I did.
This week, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone I’m linking up with some of the iHomeschool Network friends to bring you lots of fun ideas and crafts to add some magic to your own Harry Potter books!
Since you can’t read a book without a bookmark (says my daughter), here are some free bookmarks for you to download! (I won’t even make you sign up for my mailing list first, although you really should. just sayin’)
Stay tuned, because all week long I’ve got some amazing things planned:
- Wizard BINGO with a free download
- Wizard Building Block tutorial and other cool craft ideas
- A 21 page Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone lapbook to go along with the book
- Fun potions that you can whip up yourselves in your own lab
I’d love to see your creations – make sure to tag me on social media so I can share them as well!
Be sure to pop over to my friends at iHomeschool Network to see what fun ideas they are sharing:
