Though it is cold
we had such a splendid week :
the Harry Potter party
for out youngest grandson (10)
He, and his friends, will surely remember
this for ever and ever !
Daughter did a fantastic job organizing it all.
It was a kind of scavenger hunt
with stops at our and a friend's house
We had a lot to prepare beforehand,
and I could help her out to make some of the items needed.
We made wands.
(and a box that they would fit in)
A sign to go on the door.
Though not all the preparations were successful :
like the test to make "slime", in MY kitchen (!)
(some awful gooey stuff children love to play with)
However, later at home with the right ingredients,
she made a good recipe for it.
There were also lots of things to try out potions !
On the big day we were lucky to have no rain
and eight children were eager to start !
After a bit of a walk and questions to answer
they arrived here to receive their wands !
to be "sorted" into their Houses.
They finally arrived at "Hogwarts"
to play some Quidditch,
made some frightful "Azkeban" videos,
and of course !
THE BEST PARTY EVER !
