With the new Harry Potter play coming out this summer (and the accompanying book that I may have pre-ordered the first day that I could), I have been in full Harry Potter fan mode for months. Thankfully, I work with a group of people who are every bit as excited as I am when I show off my 3D printed Luna Lovegood glasses, the pieces I spent all weekend knitting for my Molly Weasley costume, or my very own pygmy puff.
Well sadly I never got my Hogwarts letter—though I still keep my eyes open for that poor lost owl—but I am very excited to take a spring break staycation by joining some other Harry Potter fans for a trip to the wizarding world right in our very own libraries. We’ll be hosting four Harry Potter events this April full of potions demonstrations, sorting hats, and even a Horcrux scavenger hunt (can you find them all?)
So while we’re hard at work prepping for potions, wands, costume contest prizes, and more, I figured that I’d give you a sneak peek into the making of one of our party props: The Monster Book of Monsters. If you want to make one of your own, you’ll need the following:
Felt: Brown, Yellow, White, and Red
Old book or notebook
So if you’ve been as eagerly awaiting Harry Potter and the Cursed Child or Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as I am, make sure to check out one (or all) of our Harry Potter events this spring break.
