The team behind the Wizarding World of Harry Potter has detailed the launch of its Harry Potter At Home hub, a free online collection of child-friendly activities, videos, puzzles, illustrations, quizzes, creative ideas, and more.
The new hub has been designed to bring the Wizarding World into the homes of children and families across the globe as the world continues to fight the COVID-19 pandemic through self isolation and social distancing measures.
Harry Potter At Home has taken on the mission of celebrating reading for pleasure, as well as introducing children to Harry Potter and his friends for the first time. Visitors to the hub will find an array of games to keep users entertained, including special activity kits from Bloomsbury and Scholastic.
There’s also a collection of arts and crafts videos, as well as updated activities, quizzes, and articles. There will also be an ever-evolving collection of new resources that are easy for parents, teachers and carers of children to find and access.
“The Harry Potter At Home hub aims to help inspire you, your family, your friends, and especially children all around the world to read for pleasure and enjoy the stories, as well as bring some magic-infused joy and entertainment to all the family,” read a statement from the Wizarding World team. “But the hub is also a place for those of you who have loved Harry Potter for decades: a place for you to feel the warmth of the fire in the Gryffindor common room or a much-needed hug from Mrs Weasley.
“For over twenty years, Hogwarts has always been there to welcome you home, so whether you’re starting Chapter One of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Sorcerer’s Stone for our US readers) with your child for the first time, or you’re halfway through the audiobooks, or you’ve just finished the seventh book (again), the Harry Potter At Home hub is here for you.”
