Prepare name badges / stickers beforehand if possible. If you sort your participants before the event, the identiﬁcation can have the logo of their house. For volunteers, add titles so your participants know who they are supposed to represent.13.
Creating your areas.
From assigning areas for the houses to using the various locations mentioned in the books and movies, you can hold activities to help carry the theme into your event. Search the Web for speciﬁc areas that ﬁt the places you plan to utilize from the steps of the other badge programs or from your own ideas.Additionally, check out the supplement Harry Potter: Places to get more information and ideas that are area-speciﬁc.14.
See the AEP supplement on Harry Potter: Classes for a listing of classes per year as well as some general information and ideas to work with them. Do research on the Web for additional ideas.15.
To encourage participation and get everyone excited about your event, hosting a costume contest as an extra part of the activities will allow you to eliminate the need to make or provide any clothing or accessories. You can then focus on classes, places and the like.16.
Share the fun of reading. See the supplement reading list recommendations. Not only might this spark interested in another series, you might ﬁnd another event on your horizon.
