Happy 39th Birthday Harry Potter

It’s hard to believe that Harry Potter first came into our lives 39 years ago and since then has brought millions of readers a whole new world of magic and imagination and reminded us all that each and every one of us has the power within ourselves to do that unimaginable-we just need to believe.  Like so many families, this series of books holds such a special place in my heart.


Harry Potter “grew up” with my children and was the center of our family reading time for more years than I can count and now we are reliving that tradition as my grandkids are being introduced to Harry Potter, Hogwarts, and all the wonders that await there. In honor of Harry Potter’s Birthday, we’ve created this quick and easy-felt bookmark craft that you’ll kids can make and use today. It’s our special way of saying Happy Birthday Harry Potter and reminding everyone that there’s no better time than right now to teach your family how to jump into a good book and read. Just follow the step-by-step directions below to create a Harry Potter felt bookmark in just about 30 minutes to celebrate this son of the House of Gryffindor.
