...for ds,aged 8,to go as ? I was thinking of Charlie Bucket as he just wears ordinary clothes but can have a special chocolate bar with a golden ticket I'm sure I can make ! We've exhausted other favoutite characters in previous years,plus they were more suitable for a younger child -ie. Slinky Malinky...

The cat who likes to live in boxes is a good one- own clothes on for walking to school and then box with bottom cut out and 2 string braces to go over shoulders. Cat ears. The book is by Lynley Dodd.
Burglar Bill? Mask. swag bag and stripey T shirt.
Any of the skeletons from Funny Bones with white bones pinned onto black to and T shirt.
Any of the Allberg Happy Families charcaters- Mr Brick the Builder/ Mr Money the Millionaire

Cat in the hat - stripey tee shirt, black tail safety pinned onto trousers (made out of stuffed balck tight). Tall hat made out of card and painted. Then any siblings going to school on the school run can wear a red tee shirt with 'thing 1' and 'thing 2' written on the front!

I had an 8 yr old who went as Ron Weasley one year; as Frodo another; and as Joris the Demon-Hunter from The Homeward Bounders when he was 10.

Cat in the Hat is a good one.

The fire dragon and bambi is a difficult one....what about dressing in the relevant colour (ie: red for dragon or brown for bambi) and then making a simple card headband and cardboard shaped dragon/bambi head silouhette and let the kids paint and add on the features etc...could cut black card for cuffs and feet for hooves and safety pin on her bottom a white scrumpled up teeshirt/vest for the white fluffy tail!
