LEGO: Harry Potter Characters

Brand new releases from Lego so with being in London I queued to get in the Lego shop and decided to buy a few. I had started by trying to see if I could work out who Dumbledore was . . . But after a few minutes I decided to just go full on pot luck and picked four different packets.

Recreating the Movie: Harry Potter!

A fantastic day trip on Monday to Alnwick Castle where different scenes in Harry Potter were filmed, they also have a broomstick lesson which was certainly a lot of fun for us adults as well as kids, luckily the group we ended up in had more adults! The photo and video taking with the broomsticks afterwards was very amusing and as you can see we have done well to recreate Harry Potter!

You’re invited to get deep, personal or have some fun with the lessons films have taught you, for the THINGS I LEARNED FROM THE MOVIES BLOGATHON.

Your hosts are Ruth of Silver Screenings and Kristina of Speakeasy, and this blogathon happens October 14-17, 2016.

You can do anything: a list, essay, video, or podcast, to discuss the valuable or ridiculous life lesson(s) you learned from a film, whether it was about love, war, greed, kindness, activism, bravery, sacrifice, or prejudice. Tell which movie taught you a universal truth, a new concept, the way a system works, how to craft the perfect comeback, deal with a bully, kill a vampire, behave on a date, solve a murder or mix a cocktail with style. Did a film guide your career choice, help you overcome an obstacle, better understand a friend, era, art form or culture, or change your life?
