Do your kids and grandkids love Harry Potter?
Mine do, but only half as much as I do. I love making and buying HP souvenirs.
Admittance to Hogwarts Kit
When my grandkids turn 11, they get an admittance to Hogwarts kit. I have great fun building this kit. It includes:
The Acceptance Letter on parchment, sealed with wax and the Owl Post Stamp, delivered by owl, of course.
A work robe, school books (from Amazon), a wand, a cauldron, Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans, a wand pen or quill if I can find one, and a Sorting Hat (paper pop-up).
And, so they don’t get lost–A Marauder’s Map.
Thanks to Britta who provides this free download to HP fans, but don’t copy it for profit. It’s for non-commercial use only. She went to a lot of detail and she provides step by step instructions on her post.
available of the admission letter and supply list. Subscribe to my email list and you’ll have full access to my Library of Printables! The name is blank, of course, for you to personalize. Print your letter on rolls of parchment from Warner Brother’s website. It has the Hogwart’s seal printed at the top.
It comes in a roll so you need to reverse roll it before you print so it will lay flat. You can also buy the OWL postage from Warner Brother’s website. They are real stamps you can use in the mail.
After the print dries, fold both pages together into quarters. I use quarter-fold size parchment envelopes (also on Amazon). I print the child’s name and address on clear label, full sheet size, in green ink and cut it out to add to the envelope. Stuff the envelope, then seal with wax. I found a Hogwart’s and a Griffindor’s wax stamps, along with sealing wax all on Amazon.
Stay tuned! On our next post I’ll show you how to make the Sorting Hat pop-up card. Until then–
Harry Potter and the whole wizarding world Always,
