Harry Potter Scavenger Hunt Clues – Part 2

We’ve previously given part 1 of our Harry Potter scavenger hunt clues – here’s the second set.

As we explained before, these clues can work well for birthday parties and Halloween, but they’re also perfect for hiding all the items of a Harry Potter costume for your child to wear at Halloween.

Each of these clues have links to the items on Amazon in case you need to pick up any for the scavenger hunt.

Harry Potter Scavenger Hunt Clues – Part 2

To find your way around
You’ll need your Marauder’s Map
This has been safely hidden
Where you might take a nap

(Hide under a pillow or beneath a mattress)

Go and find a beanie
As you need something for your head
It’s attached under the table
Where you sit in order to get fed

(Attach to the underside of a dining / kitchen table)

How will you know what house you’re in
Unless you have the Sorting Hat
It’s currently doing its sorting
Where you’d normally be sat

(Hide on the sofa behind a cushion)

To complete this scavenger hunt
You need the Golden Snitch
So look where you store
The coins that make you rich

(Slip it into a piggy bank, or next to it if it won’t fit)

Without a broomstick that can fly
You’ll never get around
You can find your special Nimbus
Next to something that gives out sound

(Place it behind a stereo or speakers)

Your outfit will not be complete
Until you have a bracelet for your wrist
You’ll have to search through the kitchen cupboards
Or else this item will be missed

(Needless to say, hide it in a kitchen cupboard)


If you’re planning on making this into a competition, you could offer these Bertie Botts Jelly Beans as a prize.

Harry Potter Scavenger Hunt Clues – Part 1

These Harry Potter scavenger hunt clues are perfect for Halloween and birthday parties, but can also be used as a fun way to give your child a Harry Potter costume.

The first set of clues are below – see part 2 for the second set of Harry Potter clues. Each clue has a link to the costume items and Harry Potter memorabilia that’s mentioned.

Harry Potter Scavenger Hunt Clues:

To show that you’re in Gryffindor
You need a tie for your neck
Try taking a look outside
Under the bucket that’s on the deck

(Have multiple buckets if possible to make it a little harder)

You’ll need to wear a scarf
So you don’t catch a chill
You’ll have to search the house
It’s on a window sill

(Hide it behind blinds or curtains)

Don’t forget that you’ll need Hedwig
Your ever trusty owl
He’s currently keeping warm
Wrapped up in a towel

(Put it in an airing cupboard or wherever you keep spare towels)

Unless you have a robe
Your back will feel quite bare
So go and find this outer gown
Where you pick out what to wear

(Hide it in a closet or dresser)

You’ll need your special wand
In order to cast a spell
It’s with the things you take
When you’re ill and want to be well

(Put it in the medicine cabinet or wherever you keep medicine)

You’re not going to be able to see
Without your unique glasses
These are hidden away
With the books you brought home from classes

(Slip these into a school bag)
