My sister, sister-in-law, BFF and I are collaborating in throwing me a Harry Potter baby shower in October. We've got lots of great ideas thus far (ex: everyone who brings a package of diapers will be entered into the Goblet of Fire to win a prize!). My first brain block has been, how do we sort guests into their houses?
I thought about using one of those paper fortune tellers (while the guest is wearing a sorting hat of course), but that would make the sorting pretty random.
The only thing I can come up with is a quiz for each guest to fill out. Then the prefects can review the quiz and sort them. Either, "well, you'e chosen mostly C's, so you're a Slytherin!" or "your total score was 15, so you're a Hufflepuff!"
I don't want it to be random, but I also don't want "Which animal do you like the best? Lion, Badger, Eagle or Snake?" They pick "eagle", and ta-da, they're a Ravenclaw. ::yawn::
Thanks for the help!
