You guys, I wasn’t going to do up a post on how to make this Gruffalo costume.
Mainly because it’s ridiculously simple and I didn’t want to insult your intelligence.
Then I thought perhaps it could spare some people staying up late the night before a Book Parade.
(Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything. Ahem.)
Also, I felt that the Interwebz was seriously lacking in Gruffalo Costume ideas.
(Just joking. There are approximately 17 kazillion DIY Gruffalo projects out there.)
So what makes our Gruffalo costume different from all the rest?
Do those three words inspire fear in you?
Or do they have you rubbing your hands gleefully together at the thought of all the hot-glue-gun-action that’s about to take place?
Unfortunately at my school, only the Infants kids get to parade. So during the Book Week Parade, I’ll be valiantly trying to get my class to concentrate whilst the fabulous costumes are paraded in the quadrangle right outside our classroom. (Wish me luck.)
So I’m going to have to live vicariously through all of your dressing-up efforts. (By “your” I totally mean “your kids.”)
Here’s a collection of bookishly delightful costumes ideas for the kids to parade in this Book Week.
