Book Week is a blast for kids. And while creative parents get to show off their amazing talents, some of us really struggle in the costume department.
Haven’t yet got a creative bone in your body? Here’s a look at some hugely successful Book Week creations from parents who went above and beyond (or, actually got their sh*t together and ordered a costume before it was too late).
Come and have a squizz at past Book Week costumes that launched a thousand social media reactions – and steal their ideas for next year (or this year, if you’re quick).
Without further ado… let’s start 2019’s Book Week Parade with some of our favourite Dr. Seuss books.
The Cat in the Hat
Or, you could opt to simply go as a Dr. Seuss book, like this clever Mum Central family did.
Some parents opted to stick to the classics when creating their kids’ costumes. And don’t they look awesome?
The Wizard of Oz
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
The Magic School Bus
Six Lovely Ladybugs
Robots, Robots Everywhere
For the older crowd, these characters based on novels and novellas may be more their style.
Billie B Brown
Fly Guy and Charlotte’s Web
Anne of Green Gables
Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice in Wonderland is another popular choice when it comes to Bookweek inspiration. We’ve got Twiddle Dee and Twiddle Dum, Alice (in her house) and even a crazy cat/Alice crossbreed. Parenting wins right here.
Alice in Wonderland
And it’s just not a Book Week parade without Roald Dahl!
Fantastic Mr. Fox (and Malery Towers)
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Then we’ve got the books that are inspired by movies, which still count in our eyes, especially when they are this clever!
The Neverending Story
