Happy Birthday, Gus! So excited when he declared that he wanted a Harry Potter themed birthday (which I threw before our road trip). At that point he had only heard Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and watched the first movie. Randomly, Harry Potter is what got us through our road trip, the kiddos listened to book 2, 3, and 4.
I made the Sorting Hat! I used cardboard, a cereal box, and my sister's spray paint...thanks Sis!
Decorations included Hedwig, Owl Post (made by my sis), and the Hogwart's Welcome Letters flying out of the fireplace.
The Chocolate Frog Boxes were used to give the kids jelly beans (Bertie Bott's) and wizard cards as take home presents.
One of the games was to use the wands that I made for each kid to keep balloon Hedwig up in the air.
My Little Potter:
A birthday cake just like in the books...thank you Vera for decorating.
