Currently, there is a video on how to draw a Niffler from the Harry Potter spin-off "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," a quiz on the first Harry Potter book in the series and a word search.

"We're casting a banishing charm on boredom!" the website states.

Audible also has included "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" in its library of free books for kids available during the COVID-19 crisis. Just make sure to search for "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone," as they call it in the UK. The British version of the audiobook is voiced by Stephen Fry.

Also, if you're an educator, Rowling and her team previously announced an open license for teachers that allows them to post videos of themselves reading from the seven Harry Potter books for their students.

As for other ways kids can enjoy Harry Potter while home, there's a virtual escape room created by a Pennsylvania librarian, and Wizarding World Digital, which lets fans explore the series further.
