All it takes is a little freezer paper, a razor blade, iron, paint, and a little patience.
What?!? You're not familiar with quidditch?!?
Then might we suggest Quidditch Through the Ages by Kennilworthy Whisp (aka J.K. Rowling). (affiliate link) It will get you up to speed on the rules and history of the game.
Last year I really wasn't into elaborate Halloween costumes. We happened to be at Goodwill the day after they put the costumes out and I just picked up several costumes for really cheap. This year the kids all decided to be Harry Potter characters, which sounds like a lot of fun to me, so this year I'm into making the costumes. It's also made the Harry Potter creatively flow, so I guess you could say I'm getting the kids into their characters a little early.
Seth has decided to be Ron. For those of you not familiar with the series, Ron is Harry's best friend and plays the position of Keeper (goalie) in the awesome sport of Quidditch.
So to get Seth in character a little, we made him this "I'm a Keeper" shirt. I've seen several versions of shirts like this online, but none of them combined the "I'm a Keeper" with the Harry Potter font, which I thought was a real lost opportunity. I debated about whether or not to add a snitch, since the Keeper doesn't really do much with the snitch. (That's the seeker's job.)
See these links for more details about other Harry Potter themed crafts we've done...and be sure to check back because I'll be adding more as I get them written up.
If you're looking for stocking stuffers, you've come to the right place...and if you order during Nov. 2013, you'll get a FREE Hogwarts Acceptance Letter with your order.
