My mindee and ds (both2) have a part of the day where we sit and read 15minutes or so. I read a couple of books chosen by them then they each choose a book and then we sit and look and talk about the books we have read etc. The other day we read 'Meg and Mog' and 'Room on a Broom' the children loved these and started jumping around pretending to cast spells. In the end we decided to make our own wands (with a little help by me) the chidlren decorated the sticks with lots of glitter (not sure if its very clear in pic) I did the star and stuck it all together and the children stuck the tassles again with a little help. We had great fun casting spells on each other turning us into frogs and chickens etc :laughing:

They are lovely. :thumbsup: I have a few children who are obsessed with harry potter so they could be adapted for the older ones if you don't mind me pinching your idea. :D

Please feel free to make them thats why I shared on here. I usually would have just done a flat wand but ds has a fab wizard book showing how to make them '3d' loads more ideas and a little theatre and puppets etc. Feel a theme coming on :clapping: Maybe make a potion with lots of fruits in the form of a fruit cocktail drink or smoothie :laughing:
