Games for School Supplies

On August 22, 2010 we had a Harry Potter game day. Admission into the event was to bring one (or more) of the school supplies on the “Needed” list below. School supplies were donated to ECHO, which gives them to children of their needy and homeless families. We also had voter registration forms available for WRock the Vote.

We played Harry Potter board games including: Wizard Chess, Harry Potter Clue, Chamber of Secrets Trivia Quidditch Game, Mystery at Hogwarts, Rescue at Hogwarts, coloring books, and the brand new Hogwarts LEGO board game.
