1 unsharpened pencil
…(my daughter used pink, purple & silver)
…(my son used black and yellow)
2. Squeeze a silver-dollar-sized dab of your first color of acrylic paint onto a paper plate. Add a second silver- dollar-sized dab of your second color right next to your first color. Continue until you’ve added one dab of each paint color onto your plate. Then use your finger to gently swirl the colors together. You want to end up with a pinwheel of your different colors, not create brown or black paint.
Tip from Hallecake: You can choose to cover your eraser to make your pencil look more like a wand, or leave it so you can have a pencil that erases. Expelliarmus! *Our note: My son used a pencil with a black eraser to match his paint. That way it matched and was usable 🙂

Do you think this would be a good craft for 11 yr old girls to do at a Harry Potter themed bday party?
Angela Johnson says
I do! My son was almost 11 when we did them and he was def old enough to do it pretty independently. Also, the author’s daughter (of the book the craft came from) is about that age. Let me know how it goes! ?
This looks like a lot of fun. I don’t know if I can resist the urge to cast spells while journaling though!
Can’t wait to create a couple of them 🙂
