Sent off the invitations and began on my projects. To start with they were going to get their cauldrons, wands and owls at Diagon Alley. I made the wands super cheap and easy. with stuff I always have around my house. I started with my supplies: Glue, Dowels, and Amazon shipping paper. I always save this brown paper from my packages - it was the perfect color. (no painting needed)
The cauldrons were just brown craft bags with a cauldron colored on the side. That way they could carry all the goodies they were getting.
I love how they turned out!
After Diagon Alley - my houseful of 8 year olds ran off to the basement to have potions class with 'Professer Snape'
I will go into that in my next post.
