Here's my guy in his homemade Harry Potter costume. There is a griffin on his shirt and Harry is in the Gryffindor house so it seemed appropriate. The cape is from an old ninja costume. For some reason Grant felt it was very important that he wear a belt (he usually doesn't). I used an eye makeup pencil to apply the "scar" to his forehead. We did buy the glasses from a party supply store.
First the kids each picked which house they were in, notice the evil Slytherin house was not an option.
Grant got Gryffindor, yeah!
There were three stations set up and each house went to a different station and then they switched stations when they completed the one they were at.
The first station for Grant was potions. I think the librarian is dressed as professor Trelawney, she looked great.
There was a Harry Potter word search and a coloring sheet.
