The award for Dad of the Year goes to Jon Chambers. 

Over in Seattle, Jon built a life-size Diagon Alley for his daughters, who are totally crazy about Harry Potter. 

Speaking to E! News, he said 'In the summer I was having a conversation with my girls, Haley and Avery, about doing something fun for Halloween this year. In their minds there was only one choice, a Harry Potter theme. My youngest daughter Avery said 'Diagon Alley' emphatically. I said 'Ok.'

The girls then went outside with their chalk and began drawing the plans for it. Can't. 

Jon's project has gone viral on Instagram.
