Please help, I need fancy dress suggestions for my ds who is 4, needs to be a character from a book for World Book Day on Thursday. Just got letter from school (talk about short notice!) Need something I can put together as easy as possible as I am at work the next two days and DH working away so can't get to the shops. I am useless at this stuff!!

Eeek. We just had this today too! Ok, well, Harry Potter, wizard from Harry Potter, Oliver - (raggy clothes, shirt, shorts and hat) or Artful dodger - sew a few patches onto clothes? What dressing up stuff does he have? Could go for scarecrow from Wizard of Oz - quite easy I'd say.

Steam - he's a boy!

Thanks snack attack, quite like scarecrow idea. He has a really cool dinosaur head and feet that roar but couldn't think of a suitable book to match with. Nice idea steam but I think DS would not be very impressed grin

Barney the dinosaur?

Or jurassic park? Ok, not a kids book, but a book none the less!

Jurassic park, of course!. The school didn't say childrens book, and the outfit is really cool (a bit too life like to pass as Barney) Thanks
