Our Journey to Molly

Wish us Luck!

Today's the big day!  We're taking 8 of Ben's friends, plus our 3, camping overnight!  I know what you're thinking and yes, we're probably crazy, but I think the kids are going to have a blast! I have lots of activities planned, just hope it's enough to keep them entertained for the day!  It took me a couple of days to make the Harry Potter wands, glasses, and wizard hats, but they turned out pretty cute if I must say so myself!;)
used party hats and foam sunglasses from hobby lobby..
and voila!

HP crafts in the making

and of course Reed was the most excited about them and first to try it all on....surprise, surprise!

and Gage next...

and then The Birthday Boy!

The finished products!

Since we have 11 kids and the wands at the store are $10/wand, I decidced to look up on the itnernet how to make my own.  I'm not too crafty, but these were fun to make!  I used a wooden dowel from hobby lobby and rolled it with glued construction paper. Snipped the ends and hot glued a wooden ball to the end.  Dripped hot blue on the end and then painted the whole thing black.  Painted half of the balls silver and half gold and the wand part the opposite color.  The kid have been playing with them all week. 

It's suppose to be beautiful today but in the 40's tonight!....BRRRRR!!  They may find me sleeping in the car in the morning!

I'm sure all the little Harry Potters are loving this and that Ben's bday party will be a huge success! Mom and Dad will need a huge Sunday afternoon nap!
