Harry Potter Day!

For twenty years the 'Boy Who Lived' has mesmerized the world! To celebrate this momentous occasion, we of course held festivities on none other than his birthday July 31st!

Young Harry Potter fans gathered at the library and were put through different activities that mimicked what a day would be like at the revered Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Each child received their own wand to decorate straight from Ollivander's Wand Shop.
Chopsticks, hot glue, and beads, got painted by the children to create a magical tool!

The children attended History Class (trivia), Potions Class (oobleck making), Quidditch Practice and even got to play a party game favorite 'Pin the Scar on Harry Potter.'

Curious About Oobleck? Here's the recipe for this non-newtonian fluid (neither solid nor liquid):

We had a great time! If you haven't already heard the news check out this article on the two new Harry Potter books that will be released later this year! They will be sure to satisfy your hunger on all things related to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!

Pictures from the program will be on our Facebook page soon!
