World Book Day costume ideas

Room on the broom or The Worst Witch. If you have a witches costume from halloween this is a super easy option.  And if your child has the same multitude of stuffed toys mine have you could assemble the dog, cat, frog and bird in a bag/cauldron.

Diary of a wimpy kid.  Foam or cardboard mask, white t-shirt, black shorts or leggings, and your favourite book from the series.

A football kit is a bit of a cheat but ties in nicely with Frankie's Magic Football which my son loves.

Road Dahl's BFG is a great World Book Day costume and can be easy to make.  The ears are just a headband, pink paint and card.

Finally Harry Potter. Again if you have a cape from halloween hanging around that would do over a school shirt/trousers.  Some cheap black frame joke glasses and the all important lightening bolt scar.  This can be drawn with face paints or your own eyeliner/lipliner.  A lot of shops have full Harry Potter costumes fairly cheap if you'd prefer to purchase the whole look.

Happy world book day!
