This is a one spot catchall for All Things Harry Potter! From parties to food to crafts – it’s all right here!
Keep scrolling for party ideas, themed food, and fun craft projects and printables.
The obsession started with me. Then moved swiftly to my kids when they were old enough to watch the movies.
Then suddenly my oldest was 9 and wanted to read all of the books! I tried to space them out so he wouldn’t go through the series too quickly (some of the later books can get pretty dark, as you probably well know), but he breezed right through them.
Then my youngest, 7, insisted he was ready to read them as well, and he tore through the series!
(If you are interested in going I highly recommend using Getaway Today for tickets and hotel booking. I am affiliate with them, but also used them when booking my own trips to Disney and Universal.)
However, I made it a prerequisite that we would not entertain the idea of going to Universal Studios unless everyone had read all of the books, including the hubs. I wanted us all to be able to enjoy everything we did and saw without having to stop and explain things along the way, you know what I mean?
Obviously from the above pic we did make it there and it was a HUGE success! Now we’re itching to go back someday.
Harry Potter Birthday Party
When I my oldest turned 10 we hosted the most epic Harry Potter birthday party!
It was such an easy party to throw in terms of knowing my background info on the subject (unlike our Pokemon birthday party!).
Be sure to check out more about this awesome spell books cake, the cake topper, and some of the other party decorations we had.
Another highlight of the birthday party was the wand shop we set up in our garage.
Don’t miss the supplies we used to get this look and ALL the fun activities the kids did including wand making, filling out a spells book, and even getting their wand permits from the Ministry of Magic. Even some of the parents got involved!
Be sure to grab the FREE printable I shared! It’s fun for any Harry Potter fan.
And, of course, any decent wizard birthday party needs an amazing Harry Potter birthday party invitation!
These Daily Prophet invitations were for sure a favorite of the birthday boy!
Another fun activity from the birthday party was the DIY quidditch match we made in the yard!
I have all the details are how you can easily create your own quidditch field and some printable directions on how to play.
Harry Potter Food
These sorting hat dogs are my own invention and I am quite proud of them!
We served them at the birthday party, and I made them again last Halloween when we had a Harry Potter themed party at home.
We still had supplies left over from the birthday party, as well as souvenirs from our trip to Universal Studios.
We were able to make the sorting hat dogs again, as well as the howler envelopes I didn’t have time to make at the birthday party. And, of course, butterbeer. We loved it!
Full blog post on this coming soon.
Harry Potter Crafts
These Harry Potter potion necklaces were one of my very first HP inspired craft projects! And they have been a big hit.
They are easy to make and fun to wear!
These printable Hogwarts House Bookmarks are perfect for new readers to the series as well as those who are re-reading the books.
I know we all have our favorite Hogwarts houses!
And did I mention you can color these? Even more fun!
This Hermione tote bagis one of our favorites to carry around.
Be sure you grab your FREE Harry Potter quote watercolor prints!

We even have a Harry Potter gift guide for those as obsessed as we are!
Harry Potter on Etsy
I also offer matching Daily Prophet thank you cards.
These owl post labels are available in my Etsy shop as a digital file so you can print your own.
I have several digital alphabet sets for sale including this Daily Prophet newspaper alphabet set.
You can also find this gold Harry Potter font alphabet set. It comes with the complete alphabet: uppers, lowers, numbers, etc.
I also created all four Hogwarts house colors alphabet sets! They all come together in one purchase.
That is a LOT of Harry Potter, am I right?? Now it will be easy for you (and me!) to find all of my projects in one place. I will update this post every time some new HP-themed project comes along.
