Kate’s Escapades –
How to make Harry Potter Wands

Unless you’ve been in solitary confinement in Azkaban for the past few months, you know that we are mere hours away from the release of  Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. At my house we are counting down the minutes until the magical moment. (It’s no secret that I have some Harry Potter fanatics in my family. You can check out the party we had a few summers ago to celebrate the release of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince here.) Anyway, we found a fabulous craft to keep ourselves occupied, and to help us while away the hours until the big event at 12:01 on Thursday night. (Unless of course you’re lucky enough to be me this week. I get to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part … Read entire article »

Kate’s Escapades – Woohoo!
It’s (Harry) Potter-time!

Harry Potter fans have been waiting for 2 long years AND 4 days for the release of the next Harry Potter movie installment…Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.  It opens at 12:01 July 15.  Some crazies in my neighborhood (and I use that term affectionately) my family and myself included, had a pre-pre Harry Potter premier party…because we just couldn’t wait one more night. Here are some ideas for your own Potter Party. We made quick and easy wands from tree branches.  Just shave off the bark (or leave some on in a spiral) and then decoupage.   Great for casting spells.  Expelliarmus!!! (Which by the way, is a disarming spell which produces a jet of scarlet light, in case you didn’t already know that.) We also made Snitch hair clips out of spray-painted … Read entire article »

Betcha Didn’t Know…

Betcha didn’t know…which famous director initially negotiated to direct the first Harry Potter movie…It’s Steven Spielberg.  His vision for the film was an animated adaptation with Haley Joel Osment as the actor providing the Harry Potter voice.  Ummm…he’s American!  Spielberg says he knew he could make money on the film, in fact he said it would have been like,  “shooting ducks in a barrel. It’s just a slam dunk. It’s just like withdrawing a billion dollars and putting it into your personal bank accounts. There’s no challenge.”  Spielberg ended up rejecting the offer.  And we all have to say thank goodness for that, or we wouldn’t have the Harry Potter series we know and love.

Betcha Didn’t Know…

Betcha didn’t know…these facts about the Harry Potter series. *  The author, J. K. Rowling, is the first person to become a billionaire (US dollars) by writing books. *  Rowling’s books were the first children’s books included in the New York Times Best Seller List since E .B. White’s Charlotte’s Web, published in 1952. *  Several publishers rejected the first Harry Potter manuscript,  saying it was too long and literary, but was finally accepted by Bloomsbury Publishers in 1996. *  Harry Potter books made the American Library Association (ALA) list of 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books for five consecutive years.  A challenge is a formal, written complaint filed with a library or school requesting that materials be removed because of content or appropriateness.
