We had our first Wednesday 1-5 Activity today at 2pm. It was absolutely magical! Brett Roberts as Dr. Flake-N-Stein, a mad scientist, showed kids some fun and easy science they can do at home. He also dazzled the crowd with a few magic tricks and song some songs with his robot buddies.
If any of you missed our Back to Hogwarts Bash, not to worry. We had so much fun that we have decided to try to do it again next year. Here is a recap of the night.
First, we sorted all the witches and wizards into houses.
Then, they went through the platform 9 3/4 and got free pictures taken.
Next, we sent them off to classes.
We had Potions (Soda and Mentos experiments, or rather bezoar and potion reactions)
Transfiguration (Owl Masks, or the Owl Eye Transfiguration Spell)
Divination (Tea Leaf Reading)
and Charms (Shrinky-Dink Shirking Charms)
Not to mention all of the snacks from the Trolley, like Butterbeer and Every Flavor Beans.
Then we had Dumbledore quiz everyone in a round of super hard Harry Potter Trivia.
Congrats to Hufflepuff for winning!
It was a blast. After Summer Reading next year, look for another Back to Hogwarts Bash!
