Elementary Activities: Have You Signed Up for the Hogwarts Summer Fun Challenge Yet?

By: Deborah Pace Rowley

Several people have emailed asking for more details about our summer fun challenge. So here it is!

Our Hogwarts Summer School has 13 different classes. Each week you will receive two different activity ideas for each class. Then you get to choose which classes and activities you want to do. Here is a list of the classes and the types of activities that you will receive for each class.

Potions- Activities baking in the kitchen
Charms- Casting a spell on others through random acts of kindness
Arithmancy- Practicing with math facts, numbers, counting etc. 
Astrology- Stargazing and nighttime activities
Divination- Setting goals for the future
Transfiguration- Crafts, recycled art projects etc. 
History of Magic- Reading picture books, chapter books etc. 
Care of Magical Creatures- Caring for pets or younger siblings
Muggle Studies- Chores around the house
Herbology- Nature activities and gardening
Ancient Runes- Writing Activities
Quidditch- Outdoor sports and games
Defense Against the Dark Arts- Activities in your faith/religious tradition

Students like Ron (We love you Ron!) will just manage to get a few activities done in a week. Those students who complete 5 activities a week (or 40 total over the 8 weeks) will receive a Hogwarts Summer School Completion Certificate.

Students like Harry (Go Harry!) will mange to get a few more activities done in a week. The students who complete 10 activities a week (or 80 total over the course of the summer) will receive a certificate and a box of Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans!

Students like Hermione (She makes the rest of us look bad!) will complete every activity listed and probably a few more that aren't even on the list. (If he or she has a time turner!) The students with the highest point total in each house will receive a handmade wizard wand, Bertie Botts Beans and a certificate. All the prizes will be shipped totally free of charge.

As you can see, your level of participation is totally up to you. Our goal is to help our kids be busy, happy and productive all summer long while limiting their TV and video game time. If you feel like this program would work for your family, sign up today.

All you need to do to sign up is send the names and ages of the children who would like to participate to:
