We are big Harry Potter fans here at Family Makes, so following our recent trip to Alnwick Castle and Alnwick Museum (Bailiffgate), we were inspired by some brooms we found in the shop, which made us decide to create some awesome Harry Potter style broomsticks. If you aren’t a fan of Harry Potter then this broom craft could also be an activity for Room On The Broom or The Worst Witch, and is probably great just as a broom for Halloween.
To make this wonderful broom you will need:
- large stick (for handle/seat)
- smaller sticks (for the head of the broom)
- string (to tie the broom head together)
- scissors (to cut the string)
- glue (to hold the sticks in place)
Going out to find the sticks is a big part of the fun for this craft!
Arrange the littler sticks around the larger stick until it looks like the end of a normal broom.
Firmly wrap the string right around the smaller sticks then tie a knot to keep to keep them in place.
Put some glue on the tied sticks and leave to dry, then the magic is ready to happen!
