The new issue of National Geographic Kids magazine contains a behind the scenes feature on Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, with scans now available here in our galleries.  While none of the photos are new, there are fun facts for kids contained in the magazine. Some of these facts include tidbits that due to all amount of fake blood used in the Sectumsempra fight which one day got very messy, actor Tom Felton (Draco) had to change costumes "at least seven times." Other nuggets of news include fact such as the prop of Aragog the spider is covered in the same material as crash test dummies, and is the size of a large polar bear, and that makeup artists spent three hours each day gluing on white goat hair dyed black to make Dave Legano into the dreadful Werewolf Fenrir Greyback.
