With Scholastic's scrapbook activity, you can make a fun record of your favourite characters from the Harry Potter stories. All you need to do is write the name of the book you're reading, choose a character, draw their picture, and then list ten things you know about them.
Here are some of the characters Scholastic would include in their scrapbook to get you started...
The Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. We love his silver hair, silver beard and half-moon spectacles – as well as the purple cloak he wears to Privet Drive!
Harry Potter’s snowy owl. We love the story of Hagrid buying her for Harry when he takes him to Diagon Alley for his school supplies. She’s beautiful, loyal and very good at delivering letters.
Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. We’d definitely include this loveable giant in our scrapbook. He’s kind, funny, and he has a flying motorbike!
Mr Ollivander is a wandmaker. Harry visits his shop in Diagon Alley to buy his holly and phoenix feather wand. We think he’s a very interesting character, and he makes us curious about the history of the wizarding world.
Captain of the Gryffindor Quidditch team. Wood teaches Harry all about the wizarding sport, Quidditch. We love this character because he’s brilliant at being Gryffindor Keeper, and he’s very competitive for his team.
Head of Gryffindor house and Transfiguration teacher at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. We’re including Professor McGonagall in our scrapbook because she’s excellent at magic – she can turn herself into a cat! And we’re too scared we would get detention if we don’t!
Gryffindor student with a troublesome toad. Neville might not be top of the class, but he tries his best, and that’s what’s important. And if you read to the end of the first Harry Potter book – you might understand even better why we would be proud to have him in our scrapbook…
