School starts for us tomorrow and I figured I should share a fun school oriented idea today. Of course costume season is gearing up, so I figured out a way to combine schools and costumes with a round up of DIY book character costumes!!
Luckily our school allows the kids to dress up for Halloween with very little restrictions other than banning gore and weapons. I know some schools only allow students to dress up if they represent a storybook character. That may seem limited but there really are still a lot of fun costume ideas focused on book characters!
In fact, just because we don’t HAVE to dress up as a storybook character, doesn’t mean my boys won’t want to. I have a brilliant costume coming up for Quinn which does qualify as a literary costume and I can’t wait to share it in a few weeks.
In the mean check out this fun round up of other DIY book character costumes. These are fun for Halloween or during Love of Reading Week when many schools encourage kids to dress up as their favorite storybook character.
