Wizarding School Charms, Class and Games

When you attend wizard school, classes are a must. But not just any classes, special Herbology classes to learn about the care of Mandrakes and wizards have to learn spells with their wands like the levitation charm, Wingardium Leviosa. These make perfect games and activities for any Harry Potter or Wizarding World fan. Plus, they are super simple to set up and provides great entertainment. 

Herbology Class - Mandrakes

Wizarding students need to learn and care for magical plants and creatures like the Mandrake plant. To create this Herbology game and learn how to care for baby Mandrakes, grab a few mini terracotta pots, baby Mandrakes, a few faux leaf bushes and green tissue paper. Glue a single leaf branch to the top of your Mandrakes head using super glue and let dry.

Stuff your pot with green tissue paper and place your Mandrake in the pot. Don't forget to attach your Mandrake lable to the front of each pot. 

All wizard students know that a baby Mandrakes scream can be leathal, so earmuffs are a must. To win the Mandrake game, I glued two baby Mandrakes to one leaf stem and whoever chose the pot with the two babies won a prize!

Wingardium Leviosa

Next up was charms class to learn spells and cast a charm with our wands. First up was the levitation spell, Wingardium Leviosa.

Using their wands, they practiced the "Swish and Flick" movement with their wands while practicing casting the charm, Wingardium Leviosa. Once they were proficiant students grabbed a balloon color that matched their house to start the game.

To play, wizarding students had to balance and "levitate" their balloons with nothing but their wands, staying in place while competing against their house mates. The one who levitated their balloon the longest from each house won and competed against each other to find out which house reigned supreme. The last one standing won a prize.
