It’s been quite a while now that most of us are quite bored with the routine life under the lockdown. Finding a perfect source of entertainment and information seems difficult at times.

But hey, here is a little unexpected treat from J.K Rowling. Yes, you guessed it right, it’s to do with the world of wizards, but in the form of a website. Behold, introducing “Harry Potter At Home” at — a brand new Harry Potter website for all the young fans out there.

If you have an account on the Pottermore site, you can login with that, if not then create a new one by registering here; however, the site needs your parent’s consent for joining the Wizarding World.

After you are done with the formalities, you will have to ask the Sorting Hat to choose a House for you, and you will be asked several questions, which you must answer wisely.

You enter the Wizarding World of Harry Potter after the House is chosen for you.

According to the site description, it features, “all the latest magical treats to keep you occupied — including special contributions from Bloomsbury and Scholastic, nifty magical craft videos, fun articles, quizzes, puzzles and plenty more for first-time readers, as well as those already familiar with the wizarding world.”

As for the sections on the website, you will find a number of sections, such as news and features, quizzes, J.K. Rowling Archive, House Pride, Discover, Hogwarts Sorting, Fan Club, Gold and Shop.

You can also watch a tutorial for drawing a Niffler or Occamy, or how to make your very own Ravenclaw shoelaces by entering into the crafting magic section. If not this, then you can jump into the Triwizard Tournament word search, take a guided tour of the Hogwarts paintings and relive some of the best moments from the books and films.

This website at this crucial time is definitely going to be a source of entertainment for kids and will add a touch of magic to their boring days.
