J.K. Rowling has announced a new online service for any budding wizards in need of a spell to help them through the current boredom lockdowns: “Harry Potter at Home.”
Rowling said that “parents, teachers and carers working to keep children amused and interested while we’re on lockdown might need a bit of magic.”

The website offers “special activity kits from Bloomsbury to Scholastic, to nifty magical craft videos (teach your friends how to draw a Niffler!) fun articles, quizzes, puzzles and more.”
The service promises to cast “a Banishing Charm on boredom,” and promises different material every time you visit. After all, “just like Hogwarts and its staircases, this page will be changing all the time.”
Harry Potter just might lead us all through this current crisis!
