This simple charm was first taught during Term 17 by Professor Doyle Branxton. The spell allows the caster to fill and close a suitcase or bag with only the flick of a wand.
Incantation and Wand Movement
In order to cast the Packing Charm, the caster should wave his or her wand over the bag and objects to go inside and speak the incantation "Pack". The objects will then fit themselves into the bag, and the bag will zip or latch. Although the spell is simple to perform, it takes practice and focus to get items to fit neatly or to stay folded as they pack.
For the more advanced caster, an additional flick of the wrist at the beginning or end of the wand motion will assist in clothing folding neatly into the bag.
