About this deal

Channel your inner feline with this brilliant Mog costume (and take the opportunity to reread all Judith Kerr's brilliant Mog stories while wearing it! There are a few things that I think are quite important when making a costume for wearing only one day to school for occasions such as World Book Day. She has over 13 years' experience as a digital journalist with a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to all things family and lifestyle.

Loved throughout generations, this spooky duo are easy to do as you can simply recycle a classic Halloween costume and cut out a cardboard cat to paint - if you wanted to add that extra layer. Little Matilda just needs to wear a blue dress and carry a stack of books under their arm, for example. If you want to go this route and not be judged, make sure you arm your child with a copy of a book or a list of books these characters appear in! It's quite similar to the method I used last year for his Peter Rabbit costume, but I've been a bit more ambitious this year (wait until you see the tail! Mr Men book characters are really fun to dress up as and you can always find one to suit your child’s personality.Harry Potter” from the Harry Potter Series Undoubtedly one of the most popular children’s book characters ever written, Harry Potter costumes will be seen everywhere on World Book Day. To mark the occasion, schoolchildren usually dress up as a character from their favourite children's book. Probably the easiest World Book Day costume for us was the year my son chose to go as the bear from We’re Going on a Bear Huntand wore the bear onesie that he had conveniently got for Christmas. Emma from All she loves has put together an easy guide for last minute world book day costumes made from things at home which is very useful and handy with really good idea’s. Just make sure you cut the bottom of the pot out and either sand the edges down or pad with cotton wool, securing with tape.

It is incredibly special sharing a book that you remember clearly from your own childhood with a child of your own and Meg and Mog carries with it delightful memories for me. Or if you don't want to lose a hoodie to it, just Pritt stick or staple a piece of paper to the front with '1972 Olympics' on. Here at My Name Label as well as making sure your all your labelling needs are taken care of, we thought we’d help with some of the best World Book Day costume ideas that your children will love too. The important take away from World Book Day though is not competitive costume making, it’s about enjoying books and having fun.

Blue and white striped top + black skirt + red feather boa + white wig + glasses + walking stick + black hat with purple ribbon + (optional) gold plastic jewellery23.

Harry Potter - they get changed on the train, so send them in normal clothes and they can say that they are Harry / Hermione / Ron disguised as a muggle / dressed to catch the Hogwarts express and having to blend in at Kings Cross) Or wear a slightly odd mix of clothes for any non-muggle born wizard in disguise.And finally, the ultimate easy-fix for World Book Day costumes – characters that wear normal clothes! You are even sure to find some book characters that wear jeans, including Eddy Stone and Charlie from Charlie and Lola. This is the part that I made completely on my own, and it was a bit time consuming, but I do think that it really makes the costume! Let’s take a look at five options for kids World Book Day costumes – each with potential to create a lot of great ideas!

A good dress up idea for a character who wears a football kit (but not noisy/slippery football boots! James” from ‘Football Academy’ by Tom Parker This footballing hero loves playing football but wants to find his own path in the footballing world. There are lots of books with animal characters – so there are lots of W orld Book Day outfits ideas right there! Sometimes you have to pick your battles and if they want to be Anna from Frozen and it means no arguments go with it.Or dress them in one of your old nighties or shirts – the tattier the better – and a crown from a Christmas cracker, and give them some toy people and animals to carry, as George, the main character from The Smartest Giant in Town by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. Another great idea, taking a secondary character from a book, but who is well known enough and making THAT your World Book costume idea - it's inspired. Last year my son decided to go as the fierce rabbit hero Podkin One-Ear from The Legend of Podkin One-Ear by Kieran Larwood. My baby and I required a Halloween Costume and we did not want to be just any witch and her cat, we wanted to be the ultimate witch and her cat, which meant of course Meg and Mog.
