Quidditch Broom Craft08:30
We went to the Harry Potter Studio Tour last week and since then everything has been about Harry Potter and especially about Quidditch! So of course we had a go at making our own Quidditch Brooms to zoom around the garden.
What you'll need:
- long cardboard tube (from wrapping paper)
- 2 orange foam sheets
- brown marker
- string / twine
We started by using our brown marker to draw lines along the cardboard tube to make it look a bit more like wood. Ethan and Ivy were both able to help with this part and enjoyed really making their broom look like it had a real wooden handle.
Next we worked on scissor skills by cutting slits along the orange foam sheets, being careful not to go to the end so that it stayed in one piece.
We then rolled up one of the sheets and glued it inside the cardboard tube and rolled the second sheet with glue along the edge around the outside of the cardboard tube.
We then used tape to secure it and wound the piece of string around and around the tube to finish it off.
The kids then took turns zooming around the garden on their Quidditch broom and throwing a ball back and forth.
We'll definitely be making another one of these as soon as we get another long cardboard tube so that they can each have one!
Make it now, or pin it for later:
