harry potter party.

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Milo had a harry potter birthday party this year at the Laboratory Science Academy in Wicker Park. The kids spent the afternoon making harry potter potions and doing science! There are SO many harry potter party ideas thanks to pinterest, and I tackled a few of them.


We got some nerd glasses at a toy store near our house, and just popped out the lenses and each kid got their own pair of harry potter glasses.

We visited universal studios this year, and I was able to pick up some of the candy bags at honeydukes. They don’t typically sell them, but I asked if I could have them weighed and I would buy them and they agreed.  So we filled these with some bertie bots jelly beans, I got off of amazon, Homeade golden snitches made from ferrero rocher chocolates, some gold chocolate coins from gringotts bank, and a rainbow lollipop.


But no harry potter party is complete without a wand! I got some wooden cooking chopsticks at Super H Mart, coated the end with some hot glue and painted them brown. Easy peasy!


The party was a hit! I can’t reccommend the Laboratory enough! The staff was so kind and patient with all our silly kids and the kids had a blast. Milo told me one of the kids had their wands with them at school on monday! Success!
