At My House, We Keep Score

While you are at Hogwarts, your triumphs will earn you house points, while any rule-breaking with lose house points. At the end of the year, the house with the most points is awarded the house cup, a great honour.

Professor Minevra McGonagall 

Since we moved in to our home in June, we have been keeping a tally for the House Cup a la Harry Potter. Everyone who visits is asked to pick a Hogwarts house. We award and demote points based on behavior. For example our cat, Sammy, receives points for  Slytherin by not hissing at children.


We use a chalkboard to keep track and it hangs on the door to the basement. Tyler did the drawings of each house’s crest! The only rule is that you can not give/demote points to your own house.  Here is the score as it stands today: Go Ravenclaw!!


It has definitely become a fun game with our friends and it is common to hear 5 points being awarded in the middle of conversations! I think I need to make a House Cup next so we can all keep our eye on the prize!
