Easy DIY Quidditch Game


It's Harry Potter's Birthday!  As many know, I'm a Harry Potter fanatic (need proof?  check out my robes and etsy shop just for starters).  Last year I celebrated Harry's Birthday with a Butterbeer Cupcake Recipe.  This year, my sweet Harry is 35, and I decided to celebrate with his favorite sport--Quidditch!



What You Need:

  • 3 Sewing Hoops
  • Dowel Rods (I eyeballed the length of mine...you might want to actually measure!)
  • Sand
  • 3 Glass Bottles
  • 20 Solo Cups
  • Ping Pong Balls
  • White foam sheets
  • Hot Glue
  • Gold Spray Paint
  • Green Table Cloth
  • 6 Foot Table
  • Drill
  • Beer is optional--this game can be played on a points system or as a version of beer pong.  It is up to you! (see rules of the game for more information)

How to Assemble the Game:

  • Measure Dowel rods to desired length (again, I didn't really measure...I just eyeballed it.  I'm terrible about that kind of thing).
  • Drill hole into one end of dowel rod.
  • Thread one of the sewing hoops through the hole and secure.  Repeat with other two hoops.
  • Place dowel rods into empty bottles.
  • Fill bottles with sand.
  • Hot glue tops of bottles to seal sand and dowel rod into place.
  • Spray paint entire bottle and hoop gold.  Allow to dry.
  • Spray paint one ping pong ball gold.  Allow to dry.
  • Trace shape of 2 wings onto foam sheets and cut out.
  • Hot glue wings onto gold ping pong ball.
  • Place cups into triangle shape (10 on each side)
  • Play Quidditch...and as Madam Hooch would say, "Now I want a nice clean game...from all of you!"

The Rules of the Game:

The beauty of Table Quidditch or Quidditch Pong, is that it can be played with or without alcohol making it a game that is fun for all ages.  No matter if you are playing it as an adult or family game, the scoring of the game is the same:  1 point (or cup) for getting your ping pong ball into the cups, 2 points (or cups) for getting it through the hoops and into the cups. Your hands can be used like the broom sticks of a keeper to swat the ball out of the way.  When you are down to one cup on one (or both) sides, the snitch must be used to end the game.

Happee Birthdae Harry!


UPDATE:  not into DIY?  Buy the Quidditch Set in My Etsy Shop!

    2. looking at the picture i am guessing it would depend on the opening of your bottle. these look like they fit right inside the bottle opening. bring your bottle with you when you're buying your dowels.
