Collage of Harry Potter craft ideas

Does your family love the Harry Potter books and movies as much as mine does? If so, you’ve probably made your fair share of Harry Potter recipes (butterbeer is always a favorite). Maybe you’ve even thrown a wizard themed party or two.

That’s why I’m loving these cute craft ideas. Perfect for kids of all ages, they make great Harry Potter party ideas, movie night activities or just some rainy day entertainment. They’re also great for celebrating a very special day devoted to all things Harry Potter.

What Is International Harry Potter Day

While these activities are fun all year round, they’re also the perfect way to celebrate Harry Potter Day. Falling on May 2nd, that’s the day former Prime Minister David Cameron designated to celebrate all things Harry.

Why May 2nd? Because it’s when the great battle of Hogwarts took place and Voldemort was finally defeated, once and for all!
