North Hills Kids Virtual & At-Home Activities

Now, more than ever, it is important to keep our children engaged and stimulated as we all work through this period of uncertainty.  North Hills Kids, presented by Wells Orthodontics, is here to help!  We’ll be releasing weekly blog posts with ways your children can still benefit from programming, even if it is virtual!  When we all work to #stayhome, we can move closer toward gathering outside together very soon!

In this week’s lesson plan, we bring you ways to have your little ones become spell casting wizards in the comfort of their own home!

Wizarding World

Wizarding World provides all materials online to help start your journey to become a wizard.  This resource has everything from a guide for “first time Potter readers” to quizzes that determine which Hogwarts House you would be in.  Already a Harry Potter expert?  Test your knowledge of spells, wizards, witches, and facts with their long list of quizzes and features.

DIY Potions

Love Potion Lava Lamp

Materials

  • Tall Glass Jar (ex. mason jar)
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Filtered Water
  • Red Food Coloring
  • Heart Glitter
  • Antacid Tablets (ex. Alka-Seltzer Tablets, Tums will not work)

Instructions

  • Fill about 1/3 of the jar with water.  Add vegetable oil leaving some room at the top so the potion doesn’t bubble over.
  • Add a few drops of red food coloring.  Add a tablet or two of Alka-Seltzer and watch the red bubbles float to the top.  The more you add, the more fizzy the potion.
  • Add glitter along with another tablet or two of Alka-Seltzer and watch the red hearts float to the top!

Crafts

No wizard is complete without a wand!  Create your own magic wand with items from around your house:

  • Chopstick
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • A Nature Item – mini pinecone, stone, shell, acorn
  • Assorted Paint Colors

Paint your nature item and hot glue to the top of the chopstick.  After letting it dry, design the rest of your wand to make it uniquely yours!
