We are now officially in Back to Hogwarts season (or “back to school season” as Muggles may call it) and we’re getting in the Hermione mood by exploring this new line of activity books that are either on sale now – or coming soon.
Wherever your interests may lie (from sticker collecting to crochet) enjoy a browse through this inspiring new assortment of activity books which all celebrate Wizarding World themes.
Get ready for something really cute – this adorable sticker book invites you to match Wizarding World stickers to the corresponding pages to reveal 10 magical scenes. For example, which character was it who famously brewed Polyjuice Potion? Which of the golden trio is a whiz at Wizard Chess again? You’ll need to put your Harry Potter knowledge to the test to match the stickers to the moments.
The book is out now.
In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Harry, Ron and Hermione famously go on the hunt for Horcruxes – and now it’s your turn. This new activity book from Scholastic invites you to completely destroy it – just pretend it’s Tom Riddle’s diary. Don’t be shy – rip pages to shreds, colour all over it, or even pour orange juice on it. This is a book where it’s actually OK to wreck its pages. Although we imagine Madam Pince would be horrified!
Harry Potter: Destroy the Horcruxes will become available 2nd November.
It is time to look into the beyond. This crystal ball replica, which comes alongside a tie-in book, lights up so you can make your bedroom resemble Professor Trelawney’s classroom. Whether you trust Divination or not – this addition to your home sure will look pretty.
