We always choose some sort of theme for our Halloween celebrations and this year was easy: Harry Potter Halloween!! Recently I’ve introduced my son to Harry Potter, and the Sorcerer’s Stone was included on my list of 50 Book to Read this Year because we are reading it together.
Harry Potter Halloween Costumes
Both my nephew and son have chosen to be Harry this year and as I often do, I turned to some online shopping to help pull together Benjamin’s costume. HalloweenCostumes.com had everything I needed to create the Harry Potter look including robe, stole and most importantly, magic wand! How cute is this?
