The nerdiness of my family continues with our love of all things Harry Potter. My daughter is especially fond of everything to do with the wizarding world! When I showed her The Unofficial Guide to Crafting the World of Harry Potter, she squealed in excitement – literally, and for several minutes as she combed through the pages wanting to try every single project right then and there. Guys, this is like THE Book for Harry Potter Crafts! Trust me, whether you’re a muggle, witch or wizard, this is the perfect gift for Harry Potter fans! Plus an awesome GIVEAWAY!
I received a free copy of this book to facilitate this review. All opinions are mine alone. This post contains some affiliate links that help support this blog at no extra cost to you. See our disclosure policy for more info.
While my girl insisted on doing several crafts in one afternoon, I finally convinced her to just try one for now so that I could take the time to share this with you. It was super hard narrowing it down from the 30 magical wizard crafts to try! We finally decided to start out with a Pencil Wand – the instructions were super simple to follow, and the supplies weren’t hard to find.
We quickly made two pencil wands to show off – and she can’t wait to use them! Whether that’s to have a wizard duel with her friends or write her latest potions assignment, I’m not quite sure, but at least she’ll be prepared for either one!
