This Thursday is World Book Day and I am so glad that it has become such a big part of the Spring term at school.
As a kid I absolutely loved reading. I would spend hours immersed in books with my favourite authors being Jacqueline Wilson, Roald Dahl and Dick King Smith. Charlie seems to have followed suit and inherited my love of reading a good book. He is currently working his way through the Harry Potter books which he is reading on his own. He also loves the Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Tom Gates series. I thought I’d out together a simple World Book Day DIY Costume Ideas post for you all.
For World Book Day, he is using his Harry Potter costume and official wand that he got for Christmas. In previous years we’ve had Where’s Wally, Charlie Bucket and our very thrifty Joseph from the Bible recycled costume from Christmas.
There are so many brilliant characters from wonderful books to choose from. Why not gain some last minute inspiration from The Works’ Books collection. Popular choices on the day are always the Mr Men, the many wonderful characters from Roald Dahl stories and my choice for next year will be dressing my girls as Dr Zeuss’s Thing 1 and Thing 2 – with twins it’d be criminal not to capitalise on that photo opportunity! I asked my friends for some more handy ideas.
The lovely Emma compiled a great list of simple cheap World Book Day costume ideas including a tutorial to make this awesome Diary of a Wimpy Kid head
Becky from 3 Princesses and 1 Dude has a fabulous Mary Poppins World Book Day ideas costume post where Ellie looks spot on in her DIY costume
And finally Harriet from Toby and Roo has an epic post filled with oodles of World Book Day costumes for boys and toddler girls all for under £10. The Paddington Bear one is pretty amazing I think you’ll agree.
