How to use these Hogwarts House ties to create a Hogwarts Houses Competition?
If you’re planning on having team games/challenges at your party, you can use these Hogwarts House ties to represent 4 different teams. You could then have different challenges and the best team/House ends up winning the Wizard tournament or the House Cup!
You could even imagine some “Sorting Hat” method to divide your guests in 4 equal teams: place your ties in a hat and have your guests pick one without looking. You’ll end up with your guests divided in 4 equal teams.
If you’re planning on doing something like that, you could also choose to place my free printable Harry Potter Award Ribbons in the sorting hat, and then give each guest the matching tie (let’s say “guest A” picks a slytherin award ribbon brooch, you’ll then give him a Slytherin tie – he belongs to team Slytherin, etc). This way your guests will have 2 party favors instead of one.
You can also laminate them to make them more resistant if you’d like.
To make these ties wearable, you can:
- attach or staple elastic cord to each tie, so that your guests can wear the tie around their neck, as if it was a necklace,
- hot glue a brooch pin back safety pin on the back of each tie (but kids will have to be extra careful).
