24 Harry Potter Advent Activities for Kids.  My eight-year-old is Harry Potter mad so this year I have decided to make Christmas extra special. By filing his advent calendar with lots of  Harry Potter-themed activities.  Obviously with him at school and both of us working from home, some I have tried to include some activities which are simple. Then some more complex and time-consuming ones which are perfect for the weekends.
