Party Project: Wizards

If you have a child that loves "the books that can not be named due to copyright laws" then a wizarding party may be just the thing. We set up a DIY wizard shop and created:

Dragon eggs-

 Participants decorated these paper mache dragon eggs with tissue, gold paint and jewels. Large plastic Easter eggs and paint markers/metallic sharpies would work for this too.

Silly potions-

Do you have childhood memories of making a bathroom sink concoctions with lotions, shampoos, powders and shaving cream? My potion making career was briefly halted after I mixed A LOT of Mr. Bubble and Avon-Skin-So-Soft with a pretty full bottle of Chanel No.5. It wasn't pretty. Sorry Grammy! It goes without saying, the allure of potion mixing can't be denied. We offered small bottles and let the guests fill them with droppers of food coloring, baby oil, shampoo, metallic paint and glittery glue. A big hit! These plastic bottles are perfect because they come with lids and  tiny funnels. A less messy alternative is a non-liquid "potion" offering glitter, pompoms, shiny paper confetti and tiny trinkets to fill their bottles. It's fun to name the potions and find out what kind of magic they can conjure.

If you have younger wizards at home here are some cute books with wizard/potion inspiration: Doctor Witches Animal Hospital and The Little Wizard. Three cheers for a magical celebration!
