8 Quick and Easy Kids World Book Day Costumes

Familiar with the panic. It's World Book Day we need a costume!

Rather than purchase something new here's 8 ways to use what you have around the house to make a quick costume and save the planet too.

1. Paper Dolls

Cut out and decorate paper dolls and tie as a necklace around any outfit.

6. Dennis The Menace

Red tee, use black tape to create stripes, black/ dark shorts and eyeliner to draw on black eyebrows. Use card to create a simple crown for the hair or just gel hair up!

8. Max from Where the Wild Things Are
