Harry Potter Spell Book

This I'm very excited to share with you, especially since I actually found a way to share it!  It took me a bit of Googling to figure out how to get this file in a downloadable format for you, so please forgive me if its quirky (and let me know too so I can fix it!)

I had so. much. fun. putting together Lance's birthday party, and its honestly hard to say what part of it was my favorite. If I had to choose, the spell books and wands would have to be my top picks.

As I've said before, Alex attended a Harry Potter birthday party earlier this year, which is what gave the kids the idea to have this theme for their own parties.  Alex came home with a full sized composition notebook as a "spell book," and I thought it was so freaking neat.  Of course, I had to copy the idea, but I modified it a bit.

I was not ready to go out and spend a ton of money on a bunch of notebooks (I've already spent too much on this party), but I really, really wanted to make the books.  I also had made so much other stuff for the kids to take home, I didn't want parents to think I was absolutely insane making them lug home a big book as well.


Enter the Dollar Tree: I found these mini composition notebooks (sized 4 1/2 X 3 1/4 in.) in packs of 3.  I thought these were the perfect "party favor" size, so I snagged a few.



I borrowed Alex's spell book and used it as a guide, and used this site to help fill in the rest of the spells that were missing to make a textbook/dictionary of sorts.  I measured the page size, made a template, and started writing what I wanted in there.



Print, cut, and glue - and voilá! Your very own spell book :)


At Lance's party, we had "Potions Class" where we made "Bouncy Ogre Boogers." I included the recipe for that, as well as a few other neat things, in the Potions chapter.



Two chapters seemed kind of wonky, so I added a third with mostly coloring pages I found online.



The students picked them up at Diagon Alley, and pretty much walked around the rest of the time with their wands and spell books.  Those were, by far, the favorite favors :)

Below you can read the contents of the Spell Book, as well as download a free PDF copy for yourself (not for resale, please... bad juju selling free stuff!).  I didn't print a cover for the books, but I added one in there for those who were interested.  If you use this, please let me know how your little wizards liked it, I'd be so excited to hear about it!





** Edit 12/26/13 - Since many people seem to have issues downloading the PDF from Scribd, here's a link to the document in my Google Drive.  Hopefully this will resolve any issues for those who are interested!

AMAZING..
many THANKS

Terry

Found this on a Google search--had already bought exactly the same notebooks with the thought to just write a few spells in or have the little wizards do so themselves, but this was even better! Thank you so so much. They were a great hit at the birthday party for our 11 year old!

TammyKat

Thank you so much for this! The spell book and all the extras that came inside were the final piece to our Harry Potter birthday party, you just made this part so easy for me!

Robyn Woolf

Perfect! Thanks so much!!! This was just what I was looking for!
