Check out this fun Harry Potter chalk pastel teatime that even muggles will love! You’ll find magical art lessons that everyone in the family will enjoy. You don’t have to have a magic wand or spellbook. All you need is a simple set of chalk pastels, a pack of construction paper, and the teatime treats of your choice to bring the magic of art and Harry Potter into your home!
We are HUGE Harry Potter fans, folks! This is the series that made my son a prolific reader. Seriously, it will always have a special place in our hearts.
Why yes, we do own Hogwarts robes and two Sorting Hats.
I knitted a scarf for my son years ago in his favorite Gryffindor colors because he was so obsessed. I love that the kiddos pulled out ALL their themed garb for our Harry Potter chalk pastels with Nana! They had been looking forward to this teatime for weeks!
Did you know you can also print out your own Sorting Hat Fortune Teller and sort your kiddos into their Hogwarts houses before starting your Harry Potter teatime art?
Harry Potter Chalk Pastel Teatime Treats
My kiddos know that chalk pastel teatime means yummy treats! The biggest hit of our Hogwarts teatime was the homemade Butterbeer. You can scroll down to the very bottom of this post to see my recipe.
I ordered chocolate frogs, gummy slugs, and Bertie Botts every flavor beans off the internet.
My daughter said she got an ear wax flavored jellybean during our teatime, ha!
We made Hagrid’s “Happee Brthdae Harry” cake the night before our teatime. It was just a plain yellow cake with pink frosting and green lettering.
We made brownies and then decorated them with frosting and edible googly eyes to look like mini “Monster Book of Monsters.” A piece of red twizzle made a great tongue.
Green Twizzlers pulled apart and then knotted back together made excellent “Gillyweed!”
We also made “Acid Pops” which were really Dum Dum’s dipped in honey and then rolled in crushed Dum Dum’s. Pop rocks would have been even better, but we couldn’t find any.
Easy Harry Potter Chalk Pastel Art
No chalk pastel teatime is complete without amazing video art lessons! Nana did not disappoint with this Chalk Pastels at The Movies Harry Potter art marathon.
Nana did a fabulous job of showing us how to easily create our own:
- Harry Potter’s Lightning Scar
- Wizard’s Wand
- Sorting Hat
- Golden Snitch
- Hogwarts Great Hall
- Harry Potter Firebolt Broom
My daughter’s favorite lesson was the Sorting Hat, which she made into a Lady Hat. She also enjoyed turning the Firebolt Broom lesson into Hermione and Crookshanks flying on a broom. Why did she take creative liberties with Nana’s lesson?
Because Nana always reminds her that SHE IS THE ARTIST!
I just love how sweet and encouraging Nana is throughout all the art lessons.
My son’s favorite lesson was Harry Potter’s Lightning Scar and the Golden Snitch.
