Famed author, J.K.Rowling is looking to entertain bored kids – and adults – who are stuck at home practicing social distancing by bringing everything Harry Potter into their living rooms.


“Parents, teachers and carers working to keep children amused and interested while we’re on lockdown might need a bit of magic, so I’m delighted to launch http://www.harrypotterathome.com,” Rowling shared on Twitter.

“Welcome to the Harry Potter At Home hub where you’ll find all the latest magical treats to keep you occupied – including special contributions from Bloomsbury and Scholastic, nifty magical craft videos (teach your friends how to draw a Niffler!), fun articles, quizzes, puzzles and plenty more for first-time readers, as well as those already familiar with the wizarding world. We’re casting a Banishing Charm on boredom,” the hub promises on its front page.


Not only does the hub offer everything from word searches to wizardry art tutorials, readers can also get free access to the first book from the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone!
