Make your own Gruffalo costume
1. Wear all black clothes.
2. Make some wings using black and red card.
3. For extra effect you could use face paints to finish this costume off.
Peter is just wearing his normal clothes, but to make it special you could take in a toy dog or with a piece of wire and a dog lead, make a pretend dog. Don’t forget an armful of your favourite books!
This is simple if you have the right dress – a simple white or blue outfit teamed with a headband would work perfectly.
This one is really simple - just find your most fantastic hat and wear it to school!
Especially great if you love your greens! Wear a pair of jeans and white t-shirt and then simply use face paint to colour yourself green. You could complete the costume by carrying some broccoli!
Find yourself a Moone Boy hat and then you can choose your favourite weekend outfit to wear. There’s lots of activities available which might add some magic to your costume on the Moone Boy website.
Simply wear your black clothes and add a purple feather to your hair. A toy mouse you can hold in your hand would complete this costume.
There are so many floors in Andy and Terry’s Treehouse that you can make loads of exciting costumes! Wear your favourite outfit, and then bring along something from your favourite level of their Treehouse.
Props could include:
Something from the secret underground laboratory
A man-eating shark
Marshmallows from the marshmallow machine
A baby dinosaur from the baby dinosaur petting zoo
That's it! Just wear your favourite football kit!
