How To Make Magic Filled Wands

Anyone else got Harry Potter mad kiddlets? I mean, we are all a tad Harry Potter obsess aren't we really? Even if we don't admit it we know deep down we are somewhat intrigued. With that in mind and my sons love for all things wizardry we got our craft on yesterday and made a handful of beautiful wands.

Now, you know me. I love a craft and a bit of mess but I do love it to be simple. And, this little activity does not disappoint. It is so simple. So fun yet so effective.

What you will need:
  • A small selection of thick sticks. Don't have them too thin as they will break fairly easily when getting your wizard on.
  • PVA glue.
  • Glitter
What you need to do:
  • Take your sticks (wands) and cover the tip in PVA glue. We cheated a little here and just shoved the stick into the bottle of PVA glue covering the end nicely.
  • Hold your stick (wand) over a piece of paper and get sprinkling your glitter all over the PVA glued area.
  • Leave your wands to dry. Try to tilt them up slightly so they aren't resting on the paint. Keep turning them as they are drying so that they don't drip.
  • VOILA!
Ideally leave them to dry over night. You see, when you are sleeping the magic happens. It is when your eyes are closed and your in the land of nod that your wands will become filled with spells and power. If your wand requires a top up of magic leave it out on your window sill when there is a full moon. It is on the evening of a full moon when the world is most enchanted.
