Each day, join LittleGuide on a themed adventure full of activities, crafts, nature and games that will help you and your littles have fun at home. J.K. Rowling has launched Harry Potter at Home for families around the world and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than a day full of our wizarding favorites.


8:00 AM – Start your day with the Sorting Hat and wear your House colors.

9:00 AM –  Wizards need wands. Make your own wand with materials from home – these pencil wands are pretty cool too.

We know that times are hard and resources can be scarce. Please note that these activities are simply meant to be a guide to help you fill the day and inspire ideas that fit your family. Try all of the activities, just a couple, or simply watch a movie and cuddle on couch – whatever makes your family feel happy and safe during times of uncertainty is the best thing to do.
