I started with inexpensive black duotang folders, and then I added some fun pages, including:
- a cover page that said, "This Book Belongs to:", which allowed all the kids to add their names to their books. I printed the intro page on some paper I found at the dollar store to add some color to the book without spending a lot of money on color printing.
- two pages of spells (which were inspired by a list I found here). You can download a free printable version of the Harry Potter Spells here.
- Harry Potter trivia. You can download a free printable version of the Harry Potter Trivia here.
- a Harry Potter word search. You can download a free printable version of the Harry Potter word search here.
And, of course, little wizards need their own quills, so I used hot glue to attach feathers to ball point pens. Cute, right?
These Harry Potter spell books were definitely one of the most loved elements of my son's 8th birthday party. The kids even started making up their own spells and writing them in their books. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the "automatically clean up the mess from the party" spell to work. Maybe next time!
