My kids love Harry Potter. They play it constantly and they have wanted real wooded wands forever, but the ones we saw were $50.00! We have 5 kids and that was never going to happen (okay even if we had 1 kid I wouldn’t pay that kind of money). BUT my husband has always liked to carve stuff so he decided he would make them each a wooden wand for their birthday. I got him a carving set from Michaels for Christmas so he could carve them and all he used was one wooden dowel (and stain) and he got 4 wands out of it! Our kids love H.P so much that they wanted certain characters wands. So we went online and they all picked out the wand they wanted. He finished the first wand just in time for #2’s #7 (Ginny’s wand). She LOVES it and it turned out really well.
