Dress up as the Gruffalo 

A gruffalo! Why, didn't you know?
He has terrible tusks, and terrible claws,
And terrible teeth in his terrible jaws.


To make terrible claws, use some old gloves and glue on paper fingernails.

Dress up as Mouse from The Gruffalo

"Well, Gruffalo," said the mouse. "You see? Everyone is afraid of me!"
 

 

Dress up as Witch from Room on the Broom

How the cat purred and how the witch grinned,
As they sat on their broomstick and flew through the wind.
 

Don't forget, every witch needs a broom.

Dress up as a lion from Dear Zoo

I wrote to the zoo
to send me a pet.
So they sent me a lion!
