Things you’ll need:
A Pen or pencil
Slips of paper
A hat or bowl
Before the guests arrive:
Step 1: Write the name of something scary on each slip of paper. Some suggestions:
Step 2: Put all the pieces of paper in the hat or bowl.
When the guests arrive:
Step 1: Tell the children that a Boggart is a creature that becomes whatever a person fears most. Tell them you have a hat/bowl full of Boggarts that are going to try and scare them!
Step 2: Explain that the only way to make the Boggart go away is to yell out the name of the scary things, and then the magic word, ‘Riddikulus!’
Step 3: Have each child select a piece of paper. Tell them that they have to act out what’s on the paper, without talking. The other children should try and guess what the scary thing/person is.
Step 4: When someone guesses correctly, the Boggart “vanishes”, or goes back to their seat. Then the next Boggart has a turn trying to frighten the guests.
Step 5: You might want to give each Boggart a small prize when their turn is completed.
