Hello, Hogwarts students! Welcome to Transfiguration! Your assignment for this week will be all about turning one object into something else. :) It is simple enough to understand how the assignment works, though will require a bit of creativity (which shouldn't be too hard for this student body, I'm sure!). In the list below, you will find items from the Harry Potter world. Your job will be to create your own version of these items. (Don't worry if they don't look exactly like they do in the movies or on other places on the Web!) Start with posting your originality marker, and then the items you use to create the object before (w/your marker) and then the picture of after you construct it (again, w/your marker). For example, say that the item on the list is a Fanged Frisbee. Your first picture would be the items you use to construct it. (i.e., paper plates and a piece of paper), the second picture will be after the spell is cast (i.e., the paper plate attached to the fangs I drew, cut out, and taped to the paper plates). It can be as simple or elaborate as you want, just try to make it look like the item, and not something that is a drawn picture or two pieces of paper pasted together, where it takes more imagination to see the end result. ;) Scale size does not matter (it can be life-size or the right size for a doll), and yes, items you knit or crochet are completely eligible! Just don't forget your "Before Spell Casting" picture. :) Simple enough? Ok, time to get creative! Here are your items:

Golden Snitch
Hagrid's Rock Cakes
Decoy Detonator
Nose-Biting Teacup
Time Turner

Each finished object (if it is entirely if your own making and your own pictures) will earn your house 5 points. If you use Internet images instead, for whatever reason, that finished object will only earn your house 3 points.

Have fun creating!!!

Charms Extra Credit: If you also post a spell in between the before and after pictures, telling us what you used to create your FO, you will earn your house 2 bonus points per spell!

(Remember that while you are not required to do the weekly homework, you will earn extra house points for your house if your weekly posting includes the homework!)

Deadline: Post your homework by Saturday, April 10th, at midnight, PST to get house point credit!


  1. do we need to pick one item, or do all of them? or is it as many as you can?

  2. You are free to do as many (or as few!) as you like, but the more you do, the more points you earn for your house! You can also use Internt photos, but they aren't worth as many points as if they were your own original photos.
