18 ideas for World Book Day

World Book Day. If you’re anything like me, the words fill you with dread. Normally because I’m totally disorganised and left trying to cobble together a costume for World Book Day that I can make from things I have at home and something that my child will wear. (I have been known to spend an evening making a costume only for it to be rejected!)

Heads up – it’s Thursday 4th March this year.

I’ve blogged before about why I generally try to use ‘normal’ clothes for costumes, rather than bought costumes (cheaper and safer, generally). So if you’re stuck for inspiration, here’s a list of ideas for outfits you can make using our bright basics!

  • The Evil Pea – all in green with red cape and black mask
  • Go Jetters (ok, not strictly a book then?!) – either all purple, all red or Blue top with orange leggings and make the logos on paper/ card and attach.
  • What the Ladybird Heard Ladybird – red top, and add some cardboard wings with dots!
  • The Highway Rat – Beeboobuzz purple leggings with a white top – just add a cape, hat and sword
  • Oi Frog – all in green, make eyes from paper or card and attach on a hat/ headband
  • Zog – all in Beeboobuzz orange and make cardboard wings! Or choose a different colour dragon to be.
  • Where’s Wally – red stop (with white masking tape to make stripes) and blue leggings or jeans
  • Tiger who came to Tea – All in Beeboobuzz orange and use black masking tape to add stripes
  • The Day the Crayons Quit – all one colour of your choice!
  • Little Miss sunshine – all in Beeboobuzz yellow
  • Mr Tickle – all in Beeboobuzz orange with a blue hat
  • Mr Bump – all in Beeboobuzz blue with a white bandage
  • Miffy – orange Beeboobuzz dungarees and rabbit ears
  • Winne the Pooh – yellow Beeboobuzz leggings and a red short sleeve t-shirt
  • Bing – green Beeboobuzz t-shirt and red dungarees
  • Three little pigs – all in Beeboobuzz pink!  
  • Minion – blue Beeboobuzz dungarees with yellow top
  • George’s Marvellous medicine – red Beeboobuzz top and jean
