The magical stories of Harry Potter and his friends’ adventures through the wizarding world captured the imagination of an entire generation and launched a “magic” craze throughout the pop culture world. In the early 2000’s there were few kids that weren’t counting down the days until J.K. Rowling’s newest release of one of her books.
When the saga ended with the release of the 7th and final book it certainly left a cavity to be filled for many fans. If you feel like you haven’t been whole since turning the last page of The Deathly Hallows I have some good news for you: there is a new series of Harry Potter coloring books that will bring you back to the wizarding world at least for a little bit.
Port Keys, Magical Sorting Hats, Snitches, Wands and a plethora of other magical items are waiting to be colored inside of this coloring book printed by Scholastic. The subject of each of the 78 designs is surrounded by a patterned background that makes this book a lot of fun to color. Even though some of the designs can get pretty detailed this is the easiest coloring book in this list.
The designs in this book are printed front and back on heavyweight cream colored paper. Even though the paper is of good quality you should expect some bleed through if using alcohol based markers. We do suggest using colored pencils for this coloring book in order to avoid ruining some of the designs from bleed through. The pages are not perforated and if you would like to display your colorings we suggest scanning your favorite designs and printing them on high quality card-stock and coloring it on there.
If this coloring book was on the shelves of Flourish and Blotts bookstore in Diagon Alley or Tomes and Scrolls in Hogsmeade I am certain that it would be Hagrid’s favorite piece of print material. Inside this coloring book you will find 59 designs depicting some of your favorite magical creatures like hippogryphs and basilisks. 19 of the designs span across two pages and can depict some favorite scenes from the Harry Potter saga.
Since this book is also printed by Scholastic and in the same series as the Magical Artifacts book the paper is exactly the same as the one used with that book. Designs are printed on both sides of the page and the paper used is high quality but will allow bleed through if using markers.
As the title suggest this is the Celebratory edition of the hugely popular “Best of Harry Potter” coloring book. This edition has all the goodies of the first edition and depicts a plethora of magical scenes selected from some of the other Harry Potter books in this series but does so in a much more detailed and intricate designs than the original. With 96 pages of front and back intricate designs you will have hours upon hours of magical coloring ahead of you.
Like the previous two book in this list this is also part of the Harry Potter Scholastic series and so the paper is the same quality and will allow bleed through when using alcohol based markers and some gel pens.
Happy coloring wizards and witches!
