We have been listening to Harry Potter audio books for a while now.
We are on book 6: The Half blood Prince.
So spells and charms are not uncommon at our house.
a chopstick or something like that.
So we made Magic Wands!
You need Paper. We used card-stock...
but I think printer paper would work too.
Also, tons of hot glue.
We used all pictured here plus 1 stick for 3 magic wands.
(about 5 sticks each wand)
Roll your paper into a tight tube. One end slightly larger than the other.
Hot glue in place.
Fill that tube with HOT GLUE.
I did this part, not the kids. The tube gets hot too.
Hold it upright and pump glue into the top.
It will drip down and dry.
Then turn them over and fill in from the tiny end.
Make a little mound of glue on each end and let cool completely.
Then use your hot glue to make designs and patterns.
Paint your wand!
Dan did a wood-like brown, I did gray, Hay did pink
(hers looked a lot like a candlestick)
Paint designs, runes or add crystals for the perfect wizard wand!
They are heavy, sturdy and feel like a high quality wand!
Wizard duels haven't been the same since!
Pretty sure mine has a Phoenix feather coil inside.
