Care of Magical Creatures Homework

Another week is gone, so here is my homework - it is due today, so I finished on last minute. But I got the extra parts done as well...

Part 1: Describe and explain 5 items that you would use for the care of magical creatures


  1. Gloves - of course magically enhanced - to handle animals that might bite, are poisonous or spit acid
  2. nail clippers - to shorten the claws of some animals, to prevent them from harming themselves or each other
  3. brush - to brush their hair, to remove dirt stuck to their pelt
  4. belt - serves as an impromptu leash if you use the right charm on it
  5. wool - to make a soft nest for orphaned baby animals
Part 2: Answer the following questions

1. Please describe the physical appearance of a house elf. - House elves are between two to three feet tall, with spindly arms and legs and over-sized heads and eyes. They have pointed, bat-like ears and high, squeaky voices. Rather than conventional clothing, house-elves wear discarded items like pillowcases and tea-towels
2. Kreacher is the house elf of which wizarding family? - The Black family
3. What is Hermione Granger making for the house elves? - she's knitting little hats for them
4. How do you free a house elf? - Make them a gift in form of a piece of clothing
5. What does S.P.E.W. stand for? - Society for the Promotion of Elvish Welfare

Part 3: For bonus points, knit or sew a SPEW item - I decided to crochet a sunny yellow hat with a scalloped edge. And as I just realized, I forgot my originality marker for this picture, I'll take a new one and exchange it later


Edit: Here is another picture, to prove that it is my hat... same originality marker as always
