Post Harry Potter Lock In Fever, part 1

Filed under: Uncategorized — lanaquin @ 5:00 pm

Now that we’ve had some time to recover from our all-night Harry Potter-thon at the library a few weekends ago, I feel like it’s appropriate to give you all a recap of the night’s grand adventures. Split into two parts, because it was 12 WHOLE HOURS. Too much Harry Potter fun to fit into one little blog post. Ok, here we go!

 7:00 p.m. The Beginning

Ms. Lauren and myself, Layla, took care of the signing in as Ms. Andree got snap shots of the arriving teens, capturing some really great costumes and smiling faces! The room slowly filled with eager Hogwarts students, and the excitement built for the adventure ahead. Once everyone arrived, we briefly went over the house rules (be nice, have fun) and explained the schedule for the night.


8:00 p.m. The Sorting

The group was then led into the Great Hall. One-by-one, the new Hogwart students met the sorting hat and found out which house they were in and would be competing with for the House Cup. The house members gathered at tables near their house banners. RAVENCLAW!!! And the crowd cheers! SLYTHERIN!!! GRYFFINDOR!! HUFFLEPUFF!!

Ms. Taylor as Luna Lovegood and two of the house prefects, Ms. Lauren and Mr. Chase, oversaw the sorting, leading cheers as new house members were determined!



9:00 p.m. Free Time

a.k.a. free reign! Hogwarts students wandered about, visiting the shops of Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade. Here are a few students making parchment notebooks and feather quills with Ms. Brenda in the Scribbulus Writing Implements shop! Some of the other shops and activities were invisible ink at Zonko’s Joke Shop, golden snitch making in Quality Quidditch Supplies and a chess room! 

  9:30 p.m. Trolly Cart Passing 





The Honeydukes trolly cart arrived! Ms. Marci didn’t get very far before being swarmed by hungry Hogwarts students. There were so many goodies, chocolate frogs, Bertie Bott’s every flavor beans, cauldron cakes and more!

WOW! Only two and a half hours in! 🙂
