Harry Potter Party Ideas, Gifts & Costumes
Most regular children's party games can be adapted to a Harry Potter theme – for example:
- Simon Says becomes Dumbledore Says
- Musical Statues becomes Musical Quidditch, or tell the children they must freeze when you say “Petrificus Totalus“.
- A treasure hunt becomes Find the Golden Snitch
- Pin the tail on the donkey becomes Pin the tail on the dragon or Pin the extra head on Fluffy (Hagrid's giant three headed dog from Harry Potter and the The Philosopher's Stone)
Other fun Harry Potter party ideas include:
- Create the invitations in the style of Harry's Hogwarts introduction letter or Sirius Black's wanted poster.
- Give each child a wizard hat and a house badge as they arrive. The house colours are:
- Gryffindor: Red and Gold
- Slytherin: Green and Silver
- Ravenclaw: Blue and Bronze
- Hufflepuff: Yellow and Black
- Decorate the ceiling with stars, like the Hogwarts Great Hall.
