Such nostalgia and excitement. At that moment, Hagrid’s words opened the doors to a vast and fascinating world of magic previously unknown to us muggles.
Even after years go by, all Potterheads rejoice at delving into the Harry Potter magical universe over and over again. We know the story, the characters, the chain of events. And yet we feel the thrill and emotion as if it were the first time. Every time.
Just like J.K. Rowling said, “Whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.” It’s that sense of being home, I think, that keeps drawing people back to Harry Potter stories.
So, why not try yet another take and submerge in the endeared Wizarding world through these coloring pages? And imprint a bit of ourselves into each character and scene while reliving those special memories. You won’t be the only one if, after coloring these, you feel like rereading the books or rewatching the movies!
1. Harry Potter
For those new to Harry Potter’s magical world, this design has it all to get acquainted with the most iconic enchanted items of the saga. However, for those who (like me) dug into the story through the books, this comes with such a sweet nostalgic flare to transport bookworm fans into Mary GrandPré’s illustration of The Sorcerer Stonebook cover. Just picture having the book in your hands for the very first time and all the adventures ahead — so satisfying!
2. Harry Potter in Platform 9 3/4
The new school year is about to start and all students are headed to the most renowned School of Witchcraft and Wizardry on the Hogwarts Express. Hermione, Ron and Hedgwg are already on board. I wonder which adventures await Harry on the train this year.
3. Harry Potter Casting a Spell
Time to cast one of the most advanced charms you can learn in school: Expecto Patronum! Say the words while you think of a powerfully happy memory and whoosh— a silver animal will swirl from your wand with all the warmth and might of a guardian Patronus. Just know, “happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light”.
4. Hagrid in Hogwarts
For Harry, one of the best things about going back to Hogwarts is reuniting with the people he cares most about. Every year, he gets to see his dear friend, Hagrid, the half-wizard half-giant who was there at the very beginning and continues to be a loyal companion to the very end.
5. Ron Weasley
As the youngest boy in the Weasley family, Ron grew up with insecurities and self-consciousness. But what truly defines Ron is his Griffindor-braveness and loyalty. With his heart in the right place, he will charge forward even into unfavorable situations for the sake of his friends.
6. Harry Potter and the Magic Mirror
The mysterious Mirror of Erised (or desire if you read it backward) shows us the deepest desire of our hearts. It once reflected Harry accompanied by his parents, his family. But maybe this time, the mirror presents us with a different take on family: Harry’s kids having carefree fun in their loving wizarding home.
7. Lord Voldemort
We must not be afraid of his name — that only enhances his power! Lord Voldemort’s hunger for power and immortality allowed him to cheat death on multiple occasions. The cost, however, was high. By tearing his soul apart, he lost much of his humanity in the process. Heir of Salazar Slytherin himself and a Parseltongue-speaker, Voldemort’s attachment to snakes is deeply rooted in him, accounting for his reptile-like features.
8. Luna Lovegood
For centuries, owls have been known as a symbol of wisdom, one of the cornerstone values of the Ravenclaw house. “Wit Beyond Measure Is Man’s Greatest Treasure” is the house’s motto. Luna has such a special and adorable way of channeling into Rowena’s truth.
9. Harry, Hermione and Ron
Chess is one popular game at Hogwarts, where students engage in matches in their Houses’ common rooms and the Great Hall; even people in the castle’s paintings are seen playing chess here and there. But undoubtedly, the most iconic chess scene takes place in the first book and movie when Harry, Ron and Hermione are faced against a life-sized Wizard Chess army. As expected, Ron has the upper hand when it comes to Wizard Chess; his brave sacrifice allows the party to move forward in their critical mission to retrieve the Sorcerer’s Stone.
10. The Hogwarts Express
It’s no other than in the Hogwarts Express where Harry gets a real taste of what the Wizarding world is all about (literally, he buys a whole candy lot from the trolley) and meets the two people who will be by his side in the adventures that will follow: Ron and Hermione.
11. Severus Snape
Hated and hateful, severe and yet loving, Severus is a complex and enigmatic character whose depth we see unfold as the story develops. One thing is for sure, though; he has mastered the art of potion-making like no other.
12. Neville Longbottom
Born at the end of July just like Harry, both their destinies were sealed the night Voldemort chose to pay his lethal visit to the little house at Godric Hollows. Despite the meek nature that characterized him in his first years at Hogwarts, Neville is a worthy Gryffindor. His courage and bravery know no bounds.
13. Hermione Granger
She’s one of Hogwarts’s smartest and best students. Hermione always has the (right) answer to any question a professor poses, no matter the subject. Given her love for books and knowledge, one could think she was well-suited to be a Ravenclaw. Yet the Sorting Hat saw past that and decided to place her in Gryffindor. She’s proven to be worthy of that decision.
14. Harry Potter Snacking
Every witch and wizard needs a break from pumpkin juice and shepherd’s pie every once in a while!
