Harry Potter Scavenger Hunt

You can do this for birthday parties, rainy days, Harry Potter weekend movie marathons, or any occasion which would warrant a Harry Potter scavenger hunt.

I should have heeded this advice because it started to rust again! 😫 So I took it back and Josh sandblasted it again and powder coated it for me.  Continue reading “Milk Cans Project”
