13 Days of Halloween: Harry Potter Theme

Harry Potter is perfect for Halloween.  Here are some great ways to integrate the theme into your home or classroom.

Platform 9 3/4th Door

This was very easy to do.  I used a red plastic table cloth.  Take a black permanent marker and draw bricks. I printed out a 9 3/4 sign and glued it to the top.  I made a slit for the kids to walk through.  Perfect for a classroom door.

Harry Potter Cupcakes

You could make your own cupcakes, but I bought store made.  Melt chocolate and dip it onto ice cream cones.  Let it dry and place them on top of the frosting.  Use red gel frosting to make a lightening bolt on the cones.  They make perfect wizard hats.

Honey Dukes Candy store

My son was in charge of the candy store.  We picked out candy and he came up with the names.  You could search the book for items too.  Chocoballs, Salt Water Taffy, Exploding Bon Bons, Droobles Best Blowing Gum, Acid Pops

 Keep decorations simple.  Decorate with black balloons.  Place owl cutouts all over.  You could even pull out your Halloween d├ęcor.  Ghosts work great.  This shows the table set up for a potions class.  For a classroom I would have simple station activities.
