I wanted a fun way to surprise baby.sweets4ever with tickets to the Harry Potter in Concert series (Phoenix Symphony was playing it yesterday), so I bounced around and found oodles of free printables to create a little scavenger hunt.

I told him I spotted something in the living room for him.  The Owl Post had arrived!  I snagged this little owl from Amazon.







I created a letter with this free HP letterhead.  The letter instructed him to hunt for game pieces throughout the house & yard.  I printed a TON of these "Would You Rather?" cards for him to play later, but the letter told him to just do the first page at each location for now. Wink





For this location, I really just wanted an excuse to use this cute little treat box printable Cheesy so I threw in some chocolate coins with the chocolate frog game piece.  They were a big hit. Cheesy





I tried to loosely match some of the game cards to an item or activity at each location.  This paper sorter is so cute and we've all been sorted approximately 72 times since he found it yesterday. Cheesy





The game piece for this location mentioned something about predicting the future, so I put their fortune teller (Magic 8 Ball) toy up there.







The last location of the scavenger hunt changed from the game pieces to this single scroll.  We had his full Harry Potter costume hanging next to it. Smiley



And off they went!





It was a SPECTACULAR concert!  He started playing violin this year, so it was like his two worlds collided, HP & violin.  They encouraged costumes and it was a very high energy event (cheering at certain movie scenes, clapping, etc.), so good for the whole family, even little wizards!  Totally recommend it.  I think tickets started at just $30, too, so not too shabby.  They are doing the next movie in the series in January, so we might snag those for a Christmas gift.
