LOADS BOOK WEEK COSTUME IDEAS

Book Week is coming up fast, next week for many schools! Does your kids’ primary school have a Book Week Parade?  When my kids were in primary school we loved creating new costumes every year but sometimes it’s hard to work out which costume to wear and create. Below you will find lots of ideas to help get the creative ideas flowing. I’ve put links to my past years posts too which all have even more ideas to help inspire you to ensure that you’re not rushing around last minute.

Thanks for the fantastic ideas. I’ll have to come back to this for next year when we have full on our dress up year. As a teacher, my very bottom-of-the-list least favourite thing is dressing up. It’s a genetic thing in my family, I’m sure. Some simple and effective ideas are very helpful – thank you!

Wonderful Tracy. Glad you got some ideas and we look forward to seeing your photos
As a teacher yourself I am sure you have parents ask for ideas or know of parents who would appreciate some more simple tips too
