Magic Wizard Theme Birthday Parties are So Easy
One Mums Thoughts
"Elissa will treasure the memories of her sixth birthday party for ever. You made the party because you were the party. I cannot thank you enough for a wonderful time. Your service and follow up is second to none. I have raved about you to everyone I know and wouldn't hesitate in recommending you 100% to all our friends.
I thought the show was worth every penny and my daughter and her friends still rave about it. It's true that you only get what you pay for, or in your case you get much more. I cannot praise you enough. You jammed so much into the two hours you were here and you were excellent value for money.
The Wizzi Wizard show is by far the best I have ever seen. Wizzi Wizard is a born children's entertainer. He knows exactly how to handle them and has a great rapport with kids and adults alike. You manage to involve everyone. Now that is magic!!" Mrs Sinclair, Cumbernauld, Glasgow, Scotland
Make Your Party Perfect
To really set the scene why not invite Wizzi Wizard the Children’s Birthday Party Entertainer Professional. Wizzi Wizard knows children’s humour and he does real magic.

Having Wizzi Wizard at your next birthday not only gives you a great party and takes all the pressure of you letting you sit back and enjoy your child's party but Wizzi Wizard cannot attend every party perhaps because he is already booked or you live out with my catchment area.
To help you host your child's fantastic birthday party the following ideas are easy to adapt and are especially geared towards children ages 5-10. All the children will enjoy performing magic and spells and making wizard wands!
Two things little wizards of all ages like most is lots of
magic and lots of fun so read on intrepid wizards and witches, and partake
in a magical journey into the unknown (not too scary) that appeals to
children of all ages both girls and boys.
The content of your wizard party will be dictated by you and the family entertainment should be appropriate to the ages of the children attending.
First impressions are important and set the mood for the party. Transform your home or party venue into Hogwarts School and bring the magic alive straight into your living room with a Harry Potter wizard party.
Easily transform your home or venue into the school's famous Great Hall using a roll of stone wall print available from any home decorating outlet to decorate the walls. Cut to size and attach to the walls with thumb tacks for easy removal afterwards.
Hang helium filled balloons (one for each child to take home after the party) from the ceiling or add stars to the ceiling to create the illusion of stars.
Create activity stations using poster board to make signs
for example for, "The Great Hall", "Diagon Alley", and "Professor Snape's Potions class".
Also consider useing red sealing wax, available from Arts and Crafts Shops, to create that mysterious look. The wax can either be put at the bottom of the invitation with or without a piece of gold or purple ribbon.
Alternatively roll the invitation into a scroll, seal with wax or tie ribbon.
Get the whole family involved with ideas which will help build the excitement up each day as the party gets nearer and don't forget to take lots of photographs to look back on the happy event.
Decorate your table with Harry Potter theme stationery. Make wizard place mats for each of the four Hogwart houses - Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Gryffindor, Slytherin so that your wizard guests can sit in their right house. For inexpensive quality supplies consider www.partybox.co.uk Their range is comprehensive and colourful or simply use your computer.
"To Apprentice Wizard name of …………………….
You have been honoured to have been accepted into Hogwarts School of Magic and Wizardry on the occasion of celebrating the birthday of (NAME) First Year Wizard Apprentice.
Guests are invited to wear their best ceremonial wizard robes for this Special Celebration and to participate in wizardry magic and spells within the Great Hall.
The Festivities will be held in the Great
Hall located in the South Wing at
Don't forget to use a great font to make your document look older and more mysterious.
Having sent out the invitations, transformed your room into
Hogwarts Great Hall you now need
Welcome each guest to Hogwarts School as they arrive using a deep solemn voice. If parents are dressed up as well the children will react very favourably and join in the festivities with enthusiasm.
Don't forget the music. Spooky music is also very atmospheric but please be aware that some of the younger children may find this a little scary so don't overdo it. Remember the whole point of your party is to have fun so please ensure that everything is age appropriate. The older children will especially love spooky music.
To emphasise the Harry Potter theme use face paint to draw a
lightning bolt scar on each child's forehead but if you have done your build
up properly you will find that some of the children are “already scarred”.
Alternatively these can be made as part of an activity (see below). After all a real wizard goes through lots of wands, just ask Wizzi Wizard!
Continue feeding each child’s imagination and lead them into their own magical world as they practise wizardy spells turning each other into slimy toads, lizards, worms or even worse!!!
When you invite Wizzi Wizard he will transform all the children back to
the little angels which they undoubtedly were when they first entered the
PHONE NOW for your unforgettable birthday party experience.
Fashion your own Sorting Hat from an old felt hat suitably decorated with stars, moon crescents and the like. If the hat is old and a little tattered this is highly acceptable as the real Sorting Hat has been around for thousands of years - just like Wizard Wizzi!
To maintain atmosphere play a pre-record a deep voice
repeating the various Hogwart houses - Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Gryffindor,
Slytherin - one by one in a solemn almost ritualistic manner.
Place the sorting hat upon each guest’s head. After each guest has worn the hat for a short while and the Sorting Hat "spoken" announce the name of the house to which the guest is assigned.
Ham it up a bit and make little remarks like “ Yes this child
looks like Hufflepuff material” or “Slytherin
If you wish, instead of inviting guests to arrive in wizard costume, which we would certainly recommend as your guests will love the idea, consider making a simple cape for each using pre cut black cotton fabric.
As each guest arrives, bestow them with a cape and after they have successfully passed through the Ritual of the Sorting Hat ceremoniously present them with a felt or paper cut out representing their house crest.
the children to colour and attach the crest to their cape with a safety pin,
glue, velcro or sticky tape.
Continuing with the Harry Potter Theme lead the children into Diagon Alley where every child knows apprentice wizards and student witches obtain all their magical supplies such as wands, hats and brooms.
Let the children individualise their wands by embellishing
with glitter, sequins, ribbon, etc. No black and white here !!!
Roll them into a cone shape, and secure with tape or glue and
let the children adorn them with materials of their choice.
Suitably resplendent in their new outfits the first year student wizards are now ready to enter magic classes.
Professor Snape's Potions Class
Label jars with the names of potion ingredients. For ideas,
consider the list of potion items, and their actual Muggle names below:
The children will love that you are joining in their make believe. Lead the guests in the intricacies and etiquette of potent brewing, and then let the children invent their own.
small plastic jars so that each
wizard can label his concoction to take home in his goody bag.
Be creative and let your imagination run wild. Give each
ingredient a bewitching name and transfer them into different
and exiting packaging to hide their true origins.
Let the children add their ingredients and mix their own colours with food
colouring and vinegar. As far as the kids go the more vile it is the better it is!
They must not let anyone see the message but have to whisper the phrase to the next person in line. They, in turn, whisper what they heard to the next person.
One by one, each person repeats the whispered sentence as they hear it when it is whispered to them.
When the last person receives the message, he/she repeats it out loud and when it is compared with the original message written down it is usually vastly different than the original statement.
Have a number of cards with different messages written and play again with a different person.
Harry Potter Look-alike Competition
Pass The Parcel Harry Potter Style
Feasting in the Great Hall
Start playing music, and have the kids walk around the chairs (not touching the chairs!) until the music stops. at which time the children must each sit on a chair. The wizard without a chair is "out".
Then remove another chair. If there is ever a tie, the child with more bottom on the chair wins. The winner is the last child left in. Instead of going for an individual winner in each game consider seeing which "house" wins which has the advantage of letting those children who are "out" remain interested and excited to see if their house will win.
The game can be played with cushions which is better for
younger children who may fall off the chairs.
Begin by selecting the birthday child, and gently blindfold him or her. Seat everyone in a circle around the birthday child and gently spin them a few times; everyone else passes the bottle around the circle without speaking.
When the birthday child says “stop” the player holding the bottle must blow across its mouth to hoot just like Hedwig. If he is correctly named the children change place and continue playing.
Hunt for the Philosopher’s Stone
With one pack of stones, you might want to hide a large “stone” to represent the Philosophers Stone. This could be a small piece of crystal, piece of amber or other “gem” stone found in new age shops or even an interesting pebble found at the beach etc.) to represent the Sorcerer's Stone.
The child who finds the Philosopher’s Stone wins a special
Also the rules can be modified to suit varying age ranges. For example toddlers can stand directly in front of the witch, be blindfolded and still find it a challenge to properly place the wart on her nose.
For pre school children move them a few feet away from the wall and having them try and take a few steps forward is disorienting enough to make it fun.
Turn older kids around three times to
make it really difficult for them.
Two persons then wrap the third in the toilet roll so that
they look like an Egyptian Mummy. The game is tricky because the faster they
try to wrap, the more the tissue will tear, causing them to keep restarting!
Arrange the children into four teams of six people. Only two teams play at any time. Those playing face each other sitting on their broomsticks.
The object of the game is to get a balloon or quaffle through a hoop to score a point. Players can only use their hands to hit the quaffle.
The two teams who are not playing stand each side of the play area and throw two soft foam rubber balls (bludgers) at the playing teams.Players who have been hit by a bludger have to stay out of play for one minute.
Each team competes for the golden snitch.
Keep the magic alive by describing party snacks as wizard concoctions. For example jelly or cold custard could be Lizards Slime, crispy cakes could be Cockroach Clusters, raisons and currents are Dead Flies, malteser sweets could be Dragon Droppings. Horrible to adults but simply out of this world for children.
Place dead flies (current) and plastic bugs and spiders into ice cube trays and fill with water.
You can demonstrate your magic by transforming their beverage into an enchanted drink that bubbles and froths by adding ice cream. Top off with a swirl of whipped cream and you have a magic potion that will go down a treat.
