Secret quest: Choose something that belongs to you – perhaps a book or a toy or a mug or similar. Leave it somewhere with a note addressed to someone in your household. The note must say the person’s name and the words ‘Use it well’ just like the Invisibility Cloak. After a day you can ask for the object back if you want to!

This mini-challenge is worth 3 house points.

Quiz time: If this secret quest isn’t for you, you can collect the same number of house points if you answer every question correctly in our Chapter Twelve Quiz here...

Did you complete this Chapter Challenge? How many house points did you collect of the possible 10? Have you put all your pieces of paper in the hourglass so you don’t lose count? When a reading of Chapter Thirteen becomes available, there’ll be another challenge waiting for you!

And don’t forget to collect all your house points in your house hourglass. Remember, your hourglass can be any container – a bottle, a jar, a box. Every time you earn a house point, cut out a little square or circle of paper or card – colour it in with your house colour – and then put it into your hourglass. When you need to use scissors, make sure you ask an adult to help you.

Still need to find out which Hogwarts house you belong in? Here’s a link to the Sorting Ceremony on our website. Or download the Wizarding World app to find out your house whilst wearing the Sorting Hat! You’ll need an adult to help you register.

And for more quizzes, crafting, articles and other fun activites go to the Harry Potter At Home Hub.
