Throwing the perfect Harry Potter Themed Party
The Harry Potter Shop in Samford has seen a resurgence (as if it ever went away!) of Potter Fever in South East Queensland. Why not make the most of it by pooling some resources together to throw a Potter Party for your next celebration?
First things first – you need costumes! Harry Potter Themed Party costumes are absolutely easy to make. Pinterest, the source of all things party-inspo, gives up the goods when it comes to Potter-costumes. Check this one out that we just love:
Or this one could be good for a giggle… Poor old Moaning Myrtle!
We’ve already posted some great Harry Potter themed party games. Learn how to mix potions quicker than you can say “Half Blood Prince” while your little Potter wannabes wave their wands with glee!
Why not try your hand at Harry Potter Themed Party Trivia Questions? We’ve found this one from The Guardian that’s sure to puzzle even superfans. If you’re looking for something a little easier, why not ask the kids to create their own trivia?
You will need:
- Coloured cards
- Felt pens
- Teams of two or three
Ask the children to write their own questions (and answers!) on pieces of card. Collect all of the questions once they’re written and then start the quiz. This way, the teams are sure to get at least their own questions right!
We’ve also managed to find this cool Printable Harry Potter Themed Party Treasure Hunt guide! It’s a little complex so don’t leave this one until the night before but it’s sure to keep them guessing for quite a while. (Long enough for the grownups to have their own feast in the Great Hall!)
Other Harry Potter Themed Party ideas…
- Come up with your own curses! (Leviosah or Leviosaaaaah?)
- Harry Potter Musical Statues – Play the Harry Potter soundtrack (especially that kind of scary ‘Something Wicked This Way Comes’ song) and get all Bellatrick LeStrange on them if someone moves at the wrong time!
- Making cute Potter Puppet Pals out of socks, felt and pipe cleaners
Speaking of Potter Puppet Pals, a viewing of this one never goes astray (warning – some very mild implied violence)
- Harry Potter themed party food (goblets for drinks, lots of chocolates and maybe some lollies!)
- Writing your own Howlers!
- Trying out the Harry Potter Mystery App (ensuring you have parental permission for all involved)
