A lot of families in our homeschool group have decided to follow the same unit study this month. We're starting La Paz Home Learning's A Term at Hogwarts. We're having a graduation ceremony at the end of the month, with a feast! Until then, we'll be studying hard.

Of course, the first thing I had to do was to dork out and make mini Hogwarts scarves for my kids to wear. I made the little cards they attach to as well, I just culled some art from the net (they were reproduced a zillion times over at different sites, which I hope means no one will mind if I use them for my kids). The verse is taken from "The Sorcerer's Stone," it's modified from what the Sorting Hat says.

My kids sorted themselves, which surprised me. I thought I'd have to intervene!

I just thought this was fun and wanted to share. Smiley It's just 9 blocks of 3 rows of single crochet (3 stitches wide) to make each scarf, then the fringe. Oh, and I attached it to a regular safety pin. No big deal, but the kids thought it was great!

Very cute!  You are a hip mama Wink  My mom has been insisting that I need to make a Gryffindor scarf....maybe I'll just make a mini one

I made them all in about an hour. Then, I hid them from the kids so they wouldn't see them, and somehow lost them. So, I made them all again, in another hour or so. So, if you wanted to make a tiny one, it wouldn't take long!

what a great idea, that sounds like fun!

Best episode of 'Cops' ever made:
officer- "ma'am why do you have scissors in your pocket?"
drunk lady- "for arts, such as.... crafts?"

Oh my gosh those are so cute!! I love them. I want the Gryffindor one please lol.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.
