This week I’m sharing some fun ways to celebrate Harry Potter’s 20th birthday! I loved Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, so I’ve come up with some fun *muggle* ways to add some fun while reading through the book!
For some building fun, make these simple and fun Harry Potter Wizard building blocks!
You’ll need the following:
Wooden blocks, any size. I used some from our wood block bin, but you could check thrift stores and craft stores.
Mod Podge and a brush
Pattern Scrapbook paper
Harry Potter themed icons
Pages from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
Now, before you think I actually tore up my book, I didn’t. I simply found some of my favorite moments from the story and copied them onto card stock. However, if you have an extra copy laying around, it could be fun to use the actual pages!
Measure your blocks and cut your papers a little bit smaller. For example, my blocks are 1×1 and 2×2, so I cut my papers a teensy bit smaller and they worked great! If for some reason you cut your papers too big you can simply sand off the edges.
Using Mod Podge glue the papers to the sides of the block and let dry.
Coat the top of the papers with a thin layer of Mod Podge and let dry. If needed, you can repeat this step again.
You are done! Stack them up and have a blast. I may have been playing with them when I should be blogging…ahem. I’d love to see how your Wizard Blocks turn out – makes sure to tag me on social media so I can see!!
I’ve also found these fun ideas to try on on Pinterst that I thought were adorable! Sadly I didn’t have time to try them out, but they are on my list to do this summer:
This one tops my list – how to make a Harry Potter wand! They look cute and sturdy and oh so fun!
If the sorting hat is tops on your list, try this Origami Fortune Teller download for yourself!
I really can’t wait to make this with the girls – your very own sorcerer’s stone! I’ve seen a few tutorials on how to make one, but this one uses simple inexpensive items and best of all, you can make it with your kids!
