A Harry Potter Origami Sorting Hat Fortune Teller (also known as a cutie catcher) was exactly what we needed as we finished “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” for the umpteenth time! It’s always bittersweet when we finish one of these wonderful books by J. K. Rowling. She is an expert at drawing you into a story and making you feel as though you are in the characters shoes, so to speak. One of the first nail biting moments of the book is when Harry is to be sorted into one of the Hogwarts Houses and the Sorting Hat is placed on his head. “Not Slytherin. Not Slytherin,” he whispers quietly to himself.
We are a family of bibliophiles. We love books. We collect books. We never seem to have enough books! Curling up together and reading aloud is one of our favorite activities.

The Harry Potter series will likely go down in history as a quality children’s book series that teaches life lessons. Here are 5 of those life lessons we learned from the Harry Potter books.

When a little boy has a love of Harry Potter, you find that he wants everything to have a Harry Potter theme. This spills over into Christmas as well! Last year we created a Harry Potter Christmas Tree and a Hogwarts Gingerbread Castle. His Papa and I helped him with some of the harder to make towers and rolling out of the gingerbread, but the majority of the work was done by our 9 year old son. He was so pleased with the results of his hard work. His Hogwarts Gingerbread Castle was quite epic.

Welcome to another Week in Review! We’ve had a week full of Books, Hiking and Silly String! We also did impromptu story telling with our homeschool group and we made Apple Butter with our extended family.
We are big fans of Harry Potter. We’ve read all of the books and have watched all of the movies. Our son, Gabriel actually dressed up as Harry Potter for Halloween this year. So, it wasn’t much of a stretch for us to create a Harry Potter Christmas Tree.
