Grades 3 to 6 children will have the time of their lives as they imbibe the personalities of Fred and George Weasley when they create and pitch their own practical joke materials and concepts. Fred and George Weasley are beloved twin characters from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series who are known for their adorable mischief.

Although Fred and George Weasley are considered minor characters in the novel, their greatest contribution has been showing Harry the Marauder’s Map which became useful to them in many challenges. The two characters are also best remembered for their escape from the Defense Against The Dark Arts teacher, Professor Umbridge. The twins is also known for setting a new joke shop which specialises with joke supplies in the beginning of the “Half-blood Prince”. Sadly, fans have been left heartbroken when Fred gets killed in “Deathly Hallows” because of an explosion suspected to be instigated by Augustus Rookwood.
