    In the Harry Potter series, Quidditch is a fast, dangerous, exciting game. Two teams flying on broomsticks compete for points scored by throwing a ball called the Quaffle through hoops on either end of a large grassy pitch. Try creating your own Quidditch field with Harry flying through the air on his broomstick. Or choose any action scene from your favorite book. Here are some possibilities.

    Quidditch pitch. Using Crayola® Scissors, remove one long side of a shoe box. Line the bottom of the box with white paper. With Crayola Washable Markers, color in the oval field area to resemble the Quidditch pitch.

  • 3.

    Cut a strip of construction paper to fit around the inside of the box. Color in the low stadium seats with markers. Use Crayola Super Tips Fine Line Markers to make circles to resemble fans’ heads. Use Crayola School Glue to attach the paper to the back and sides of the box.

    Towers. On recycled file folders, use Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils to draw six towers. Cut them out and erase any extra marks. Fold the top points of the towers down so they become the roof over the seats. Draw seats in the top of the tower using circles to represent fans. Decorate the towers using the two teams’ colors. Glue towers into the stadium.

    On cardboard, draw three rings. Color and cut them out. Glue each ring to the top of a craft stick. Glue the sticks into the field at one end of the stadium. Place each one at a different height.

    Quidditch players. On recycled file folders, draw Harry and an opposing player on their broomsticks, along with a Golden Snitch and a game ball. Color and cut them out.

    Glue a craft stick sticking up into each corner of the box. Run yarn or fishing line diagonally across from one stick to another. Tie the ends. Repeat between the other two sticks to form an X.

    Tape yarn to the back of Harry’s head and tie it to the X. Repeat.
