Thanks for the ideas. My daughter wants to do a Harry Potter birthday thisy year. Definitely saving for later reference.
That’s so awesome, Brandy! I’d love to hear what you end up doing 🙂
Our family loves Harry Potter as well! We have Harry Potter marathons monthly. We’re a little obsessed. Great ideas my daughter dressed as Hermonie for Halloween. I seen somewhere online Latin references to the spell names that would be great for homeschooling lessons as well just to spice things up. I think I seen the video on YouTube.
Love it! Thanks for sharing 🙂
