In celebration of the new movie release Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, I’ve included some fun ideas for a Harry Potter party. Wouldn’t his flying blue car be a hit at a Harry Potter party? Fun, fun photo op!! Some very good art skills would be required to paint the moon and car – photo from here.
Not interested in making your own sign?

This is my favorite idea of Minerva’s. The platform 9 3/4 brick wall made out of an old curtain. Check out her blog for fabulous Harry Potter birthday party ideas.
Fold-up paper models would be an inexpensive way to make a castle. This would be a time consuming but cheap way to make a paper castle – not quite Hogwarts.
It’s a free down loadable label for drinks at your very own Harry Potter Party. My family loves root beer, but cream soda is a close second! Since wizards love “ButterBeer” (cream soda), I made these drink labels for fun. There are two different labels to download one for 2 liter soda bottle and one for a small 12 ounce bottle. Budget wise the 2 liter bottle makes sense for a large group. A fun activity for party guests would be to make their own butterbeer – add butterscotch syrup to cream soda!
