World Book Day on a Budget

World Book Day on a Budget

Every year World Book Day rolls around, it’s time to decide whether to buying a costume or make one yourself.

In my household, while my kids love dressing up for school, they are not huge fans of fancy dress at home. Therefore, I refuse to waste money on a new costumes as they would simply get left behind in a cupboard with only a dusty Elsa and Rapunzel dress for company.

So, I have come up with a cheap alternative to fancy dress costumes using only cardboard, paint, paper fasteners and a little imagination.

See below for my step by step guide of how to make a Stick Man and James and the Giant Peach costume for World Book Day.

Shopping List 

  • Cardboard
  • Brown, Green & Orange paint 
  • Paint brushes
  • Paper fasteners
  • Scissors

1. Cut the cardboard to size 

2. Paint the cardboard

3. Attach cardboard together with paper fasteners

Voila, World Book Day on a budget.

It may break after a day at school, but it won’t break the bank!

Happy World Book Week everyone.
