No Harry Potter marathon would be complete without “Snitch” Cupcakes! MYO Snitch Cupcakes- simply add a Ferrero rocher chocolate to the top of a cupcake, make wings by cutting a leaf shape and folding in half over a toothpick, secure with a drop of glue, cut slits with scissors to create “feathers”.

While you’re grabbing snacks to go with your movie marathon, be sure to get some Bertie Bott’s every flavor beans!

You want to be careful with those. When they say every flavour, they mean every flavour — you know you get all the ordinary ones like chocolate and peppermint and marmalade, but then you can get spinach and liver and tripe. George reckons he had a bogey-flavoured one once.“?

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Grindelwald escapes capture and launches a series of horrific attacks. In the meantime, Newt Scamander completes an excursion to find and document magical creatures from around the world. Unfortunately, his case, containing magical creatures gets mixed up with another, and magical creatures are released.

See the Movie Trailer Here:

Oh my goodness, where to begin?? I absolutely love the creatures in this movie. Here’s how to make your own posable Pickett the Bowtruckle.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Albus Dumbledore enlists his former student, Newt Scamander to help thwart Grindelwald’s plan to rule over muggles and take away any power they have.

See the Movie Trailer Here:

To be honest, while we enjoyed seeing the magical creatures and learning more about them, this movie was utterly atrocious in having a decent plot line. The continuity errors from mentionings in the original book series as well as scenes from the movies make it frustrating for true Harry Potter fans to truly enjoy.
