::Celebrations:: Our Family's "Camp Hogwarts"


I have a confession. I am a total Harry Potter NERD! There! I said it!!!!! Oh it feels soooo good to be out...;)


With all that out in the open I can share one of our family's plans for the summer. It includes our very own Camp Hogwarts. What's that? Well, to celebrate the fast approaching final movie installment of the HP series we wanted to have a ginormous movie marathon leading up to the theatrical premier of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. The family brainstormed some ideas and we came up with a week long celebration (calling it Camp Hogwarts) that includes watching a movie from the series each night, beginning with The Sorcerer's Stone, until the theatrical release on July 15th (which we will be attending with the many, many, many other fans).


The fun begins on July 9th with the kiddo's very own acceptance letter into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Our house will be transformed into Hogwarts, a bit of Diagon Alley and Hogsmead (all from the books). During the day we will partake in activities, crafts and games. The evening we will enjoy yummy treats and meals from the books. And then end the day with the movie (if weather is good we will enjoy this under the stars on our lawn).


It's a big undertaking and we have asked cousins to join in on the fun. I will be posting inspiration, self-made printables, crafting, and the planning process on my Purple Sage Creations facebook page. I welcome everyone to become a fan and follow along. Perhaps you can have your own Hogwarts Camp or HP party before the final movie.


Then during camp week I will share some pics and all the activities we will be doing here and on my facebook page. Awesome!! Can't wait!
