We just celebrated our tween’s birthday!
One of the biggest hits was this “special letter” from Hogwarts School. Mr. BKHM designed it and we’re sharing it with you here:
We purchased the Folkmanis puppet Snowy Owl and had it “deliver” the letter. We did attempt to seal the envelope with hot wax and press a button into it for effect. This was the last gift he received on his birthday. It continues to spark his imagination and has renewed his love for reading Harry Potter books.
Background: When Harry Potter turned 11 Hagrid came visited him to deliver his Hogwarts letter in person. This was when he found out he was a wizard.
I wanted to make sure I documented things that he liked this year, because I’m sure I’ll forget! I brainstormed a list of things he received or wished for and made a Eleven Year Old Gift-Buying Guide (click here) for the tween in your life.
