World Book Day

It's World Book Day again and I realised that I never got round to posting pictures of last years efforts. Dax wanted to be the Gruffalo's child and rather than buy an overpriced ready-made costume, I decided to make one for him. I found a brown hoody in a charity shop and then used felt and pipe cleaners to make ears, horns, eyes and purple purple prickles. We then made him a 'Stick Man' to complete the outfit. Arlo and Darcey were much more simple and went as classics, 'Hairy Maclary' and 'Mog'.

This year I was able to recycle the Gruffalo costume for Darcey which although a little on the big side, still made a very cute little outfit.

Rather than having to dress up for book day this year, the boy's school ran a competition to dress up a potato as a character from a book. Dax dressed his as Mr Tickle and Arlo, after a little persuasion, made a Hungry Caterpillar.
