DIY Chocolate Frogs and Printable Harry Potter Wizard Cards
If you are prepping for a Harry Potter party or any kind of magical event, these DIY Chocolate Frogs and Printable Harry Potter Wizard Cards are a must. The frogs are delicious and fun to make. The free printable Harry Potter wizard cards are a fun party activity. They are also great to print, cut apart and put in goody bags. However you choose to use them, they are sure to be a hit.
DIY Chocolate Frogs Made with Candy
It is so easy and fun to do this Harry Potter inspired sweet craft with meltable candies. These can be found online or at any craft store. Additionally, you can use vanilla or chocolate bark from the grocery store.
Directions For DIY Chocolate Frogs
Start by melting the candy. This can be done in the microwave, on the stovetop or using a melting pot which is your best choice for kids.
Pour the mleted candy into the mold.
Once the chocolate hardens, pop it out of the mold. This process can be sped up by putting into into the refrigerator.
There are so many different frog molds to choose from. I really like this one too.
They are great fun to create with kids to share for party treats or in the classroom. They are also darling toppers for cupcakes and on cakes.
We have read the books and have watched the movies. We often talk about stories of Hogwarts, magic and muggles. When we threw a Harry Potter Movie-A-Thon, we made these awesome chocolate frogs (with cards and all). I am excited to share these with you as a part of this amazing series… The Best Harry Potter Crafts, Parties, Tutorials and More by RaeGun Ramblings.
I love this quote from Ron Weasley when he is explaining chocolate frogs to Harry in The Sorcerer’s Stone:
“Oh, of course, you wouldn’t know — Chocolate Frogs have cards inside of them, you know, to collect — famous witches and wizards. I’ve got about five hundred, but I haven’t got Agrippa or Ptolemy.”
Printable Wizard Cards
These printable wizard cards are a blast to print, color and cut apart. They can be used in so many super fun ways both in the classroom and at home. I think they would be fun to use for bookmarks, gift tags, luggage tags and collecting.

Ways to Use Free Printables
You might have seen this list from me before but I think it is worth sharing over and over. Sometimes the people in the back need to hear things a few times, right? There are so many great ways to use free printables. Here are some of my favorites.
- Print them and mail in an envelope with a stamp. Snail mail rocks.
- Batch some up to make an activity book. This is great for a road trip!
- Print and use at a place setting on the table to create a conversation starter.
- Add them to goody bags. By the way, goody bags are not just for birthday parties.
- Package them up with your favorite markers and crayons to give as a gift.
- Drop a few off at the local coffee shop with fun pencils to spread some happy.
- Cut them up to make cards, gift wrap and decorations.
