Every year the mention of book day fills me partly with excitement as it involves dressing up, which my children love and they are buzzing with it, but partly with dread as it is me who has to figure out how to create a costume that doesn’t take ages and doesn’t cost me a fortune!
It’s all a bit different this year, as we are still home schooling on World Book Day, 4th March 2021, however the kids have already asked if they can dress up, so they will! It will give us a great home school project!
Make at home costumes
My daughter never forgets the year she won the prize for going dressed at Sophie from the BFG. Pink Dress, glasses and a dream jar made from fairy lights and an old container.
If you want to make a costume at home, Book Aid International have provided a whole host of dress up guides from the quick to make, to the more elaborate! The best thing is that many of them have ‘how to videos’!! To see the 43 different costumes to Make at home click here and feel free to leave them a donation!
