11 Magical Harry Potter Ideas for the Classroom


This post contains affiliate links.

1. Read from the illustrated versions of the books. Even if students are reading the original version on their own, it's great to have an illustrated copy on hand.



2. Give out personalized Hogwarts acceptance letters when Harry finally gets his from Hagrid.



3. Play magical bingo during a classroom party or as a classwide reward. If you want to get really crazy, use Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans as bingo chips.



4. Make a Hedwig costume out of fleece and ribbon. Wear it for Halloween or just use the cape as a classroom prop!



5. Integrate magic into other subject areas. Magical alphabetical order, anyone?



6. Make golden snitches and give them out as holiday gifts for your students. Or have the kids make snitches themselves if you don't mind glitter everywhere! You'll need small styrofoam balls, toothpicks, and glitter.



7. Give out Hedwig Homework Hero brag tags. Students can earn them by turning in their homework every day for a month.

8. Make and give out chocolate frogs as valentines. You'll need chocolate frog molds, melting chocolate, and this printable template.



9. Or, if you're not up for using chocolate molds, print these free valentines. 



10. Draw a friendly reminder from Dumbledore on the whiteboard when it comes time for standardized testing. 



11. Give out Harry Potter-themed awards at the end of the year.


Mischief managed!
