New ‘Harry Potter at Home Hub’ Launches

With millions of little Muggles and Wizards stuck at home around the world, J.K. Rowling announced the launch of “Harry Potter at Home” hub on April 1st, to hopefully help relieve some of the boredom that kids may be experiencing during the pandemic.

know that everyone is trying to keep safe at home at the moment and so, with J.K. Rowling and our friends at Audible, Bloomsbury, OverDrive, Pottermore Publishing and Scholastic, we are delighted to introduce Harry Potter At Home to help children, parents, carers and teachers add a touch of Harry Potter magic to our new daily lives.

J.K Rowling and her team have already announced a special, open licence for teachers to read the seven Harry Potter books aloud to their pupils in virtual read-a-long sessions on video. This means if you’re a teacher you’ll be able to record yourself reading Harry’s Hogwarts adventures and share these with your pupils online.

This special Harry Potter At Home hub is where you’ll find all the latest things to keep you occupied – from special activity kits from Bloomsbury to Scholastic, to nifty magical craft videos (teach your friends how to draw a Niffler!) fun articles, quizzes, puzzles and more. We’re casting a Banishing Charm on boredom.

As an “older” Harry Potter fan, I tried a few of the activities that were offered and found them to be fun and entertaining.  Be sure to check the site frequently as activities will change to keep the site fresh.
