Introduction: Harry Potter Cheese Darts
Games, cheese, and Harry Potter: three seemingly unrelated things that I love. So I decided to combine them all, of course. Get ready for Harry Potter cheese darts!
- Baking Parchment/Wax Paper - Get it here
- Black Sharpie - Get it here
- Scissors - Get it here
- X-Acto Knife - Get it here
- Masking Tape - Get it here
- 11x17 Paper (8.5x11, or A4) - Get it here
- Computer & Printer
- Empty Soda Can
- Single Cheese Slices
You'll also need to download my free templates available below (desktop) or above (mobile). Once youv'e done that, dart over to the next step and let's get cheesy.
Step 1: The Dart Board
Print out the harry potter portrait from the templates on either 11x17 (recommended), 8.5x11, or A4 paper. Use your black sharpie to trace the template onto a piece of baking parchment. You can use masking tape to hold the template and baking parchment in place. That's it. You've made your dart board.
Step 2: The Lightning Bolt Cheese
Use your X-Acto knife to puncture the empty soda can, then work your scissors in to the puncture and cut off the top and bottom of the can and recycle them. You should be left with the center piece of the can. Cut it into a large rectangle, making sure that the edges are nice, straight, and not jagged.
Now print out the lightning bolt template and use it to make small marks along one side of the aluminum rectangle for each edge of the bolt. See images for reference. Now that your aluminum is marked, you know where to bend it in order to mimic the lightning bolt shape. Alternate the direction of each bend you make until you are done. Now when you connect the open ends together you should have a lightning bolt shape. Tape it together and refine your shape a bit and you[re ready to cookie-cut some lightning bolts out of your cheese slices!
Step 3: How to Play
Hang the parchment with your Harry Potter portrait on the wall. You'll notice the portrait is missing the lightning bolt scar. You will be tossing the lightning bolt cheese at the template. The object of the game is to get the cheese to stick as close to Harry's forehead as possible. Whoever gets closest wins!
Pro Tip: Lick it before you stick it.
Step 4: You're Done!
That's it, you're finished! Congratulations.
