You’ve all done a wonderful job of researching and practicing the different attributes of some Professional Quidditch Teams. Now, it’s time to put those skills to the test and show the scouts that you really can work as a team and put those traits to work!
Option 1: Partner with another student and choose one Professional Quidditch Team. Each student should craft a different type of item representing their team’s attribute and show how those attributes can make the two different finished projects work together.
Students may submit up to 2 projects for this challenge. You can stay with the same partner or mix it up and choose a different partner each time. Projects will earn 15 base points. Partners my do combo-posts with each other, but please only post one set of projects per post. A student may choose to do either Option for their first turn-in and either Option for their 2nd turn in. A student is not limited to doing an Option only once.
Students are encouraged (but not required) to form Inter-house friendships and craft with a student from a different House. Students who branch out and work with a student from a different House will earn Bonus Points.

Option 2 – Live it up. Craft something inspired by life on the equator. This could be cultures, wildlife, ecosystems, geology, whatever, as long as it’s found on the equator (references in your turn-in posts would be appreciated).
We will be accepting sewing projects this month for option 2.

Charms- Scourgify

Option 1. Craft something to aid you in cleaning.
Option 2. Clean up a pattern or fiber by altering it to better fit your size or preferences, or clean up a “dirty” yarn or fiber you don’t like the color of by overdyeing it.

Herbology-Fertilizer

Option 1: Let us see what fertilizes your crafting minds. Knit, crochet, spin, weave, or dye using something that has fed your imagination or helped you grow as a crafter. This might be a new technique you learned, something that you designed yourself, someone else’s design that caught your imagination, a project that inspired you to craft for others…the sky’s the limit. Just tell us what you’ve created and how it inspired you or helped you grow.
Option 2: Craft a toilet-paper cozy. Because really, you know we had to go there.
Allena-

History of Magic

Craft something based on a historic prophesy and/or its effects. You may select a ‘well-known’ historic prophecy, like Harry’s prophecy or ‘Beware the Ides of March’, or Cassandra’s prophecies from the Trojan War, or it could be a little-known prophecy you have discovered from Wizarding history or even a prophecy only you know about.
