YOU CAN DO TONIGHT!

World Book Day – the struggle is real. Don’t get me wrong I love books and anything to do with encouraging kids to love them is fantastic in my book (do you see what I did there?) but let’s be honest, we have enough on our plates and a little help goes a long way!

Have you left it too late for World Book Day this week?

Panic not, here are some fail-safe ideas we can all pull together from around the house!

MR BUMP!

The simplicity! A bandage on head and a blue t-shirt, blue jeans and hey presto!

What about a Veruca Salt? Pretty dress and tights and you are done! Violet Beauregarde? Tracksuit – it’s that easy!

You get the idea, the only tough one to pull off is Wonka himself, maybe next year!

Here is the man himself done by my very clever friend Claire and her son a couple of years back – how fab is this?!
