This year, for a birthday party they’ll write about in the Daily Prophet, bringing all the enchantments of Harry Potter to life. We’ve got everything your little wizard or witch needs to have a magical birthday.
To throw a genuinely magical celebration, you don’t need to be a Hogwarts graduate. Instead, use our Harry Potter 2 party ideas to put together the ideal party supplies for a wonderful occasion.
Harry Potter Party Ideas
Harry Potter is one of the most well-known franchises in the world. However, remembering where everything began can be difficult. Use it to refresh your memory before arranging your Harry Potter themed party, or to educate all of your guests on who’s who in the Wizarding World.
Harry Potter Party Decorations
A few important decorations may make your gathering truly unique. We didn’t go overboard with décor, but there were a few modest high-impact items. And these simple Harry Potter decorations added a particular touch to the occasion.
Platform 9 ¾ Wall
There can’t be a Harry Potter party without a Platform 9 ¾ Wall.
All of your guests are enthralled with your wall. You entered a shadowy Great Hall filled with magical floating candles after passing through this brick wall.
Great Hall of Floating Candles
Is there another amusing Harry Potter decor idea? Candles that float! These are simple to build and will give your gathering a wonderfully magical feel.
Cut white cardstock paper sheets into fourths, roll them into tube shapes, then seal the corners with clear tape to make candles. Make it look like molten wax is dripping down the sides of the candles by using a glue gun. Thread a 12-inch length of twine through each tube. Placed a battery-operated tealight candle inside and taped it to the ceiling.
Hang your floating candles in the bedroom hallway since, regardless of the time of day, that area is quite dark when the doors are closed. You might also humorously refer to it as “The Great Hall” because it is a corridor. Because the Great Hall in Hogwarts is frequently mentioned in the Harry Potter novels and films, it’s a brilliant idea.
This DIY project took a little longer than anticipated, but it was well worth it.
Hedwig owl balloons
Several people used white balloons to make Hedwig Owls. You can create your own Hedwigs on white balloons using a picture, and it’s really simple. If you don’t feel up to drawing Hedwig yourself, there are templates available online.
Photo booth & photo props
Photo booths are all the trend these days at events. So, of course, for our celebration, we’ll need some Harry Potter photo booth accessories. They had a good time playing with them.
It was entertaining to watch kids utilize their imaginations to create their own humorous personas by combining items. For example, they paired Ron Weasley’s hair with a house elf mask before announcing it as Dobby’s girlfriend. Isn’t it amusing?
Harry Potter Party Games & Activities
Without properly sorting your attendees into Hogwarts Houses, no Harry Potter themed party would be complete. There are many sophisticated sorting tasks available online, but we chose to keep it basic.
Each attendee was given a witch hat to wear and a small surprise packet to open. To make each envelope a little more festive, add some leftover Halloween stickers.
The color of the M&Ms determined which house the guest belonged to: red for Gryffindor, green for Slytherin, blue for Ravenclaw, and yellow for Hufflepuff.
This exercise was simple to plan and everyone had a great time doing it.
Harry Potter and his Hogwarts classmates like playing Wizard’s Chess as a pastime. It’s essentially a chess game with the exception that the pieces come to life and slaughter one another during the game.
We ran out of time for this task as well. Allow the youngsters to compete against one another using your family chess board and a couple of foam swords. Someone may pretend to stab the other player with a foam sword every time they take the other player’s chess piece. Although it was a touch violent, it would have been a big hit with the kids.
Floating Charms Practice
The kids loved this Harry Potter birthday party idea! Practice floating charms with your Hedwig Owl balloons. While reciting “Wingardium Leviosa” aloud, each child used their magic wand gifts to keep their balloon floating. This exercise was a big hit with the kids and kept them occupied for a long time.
