Yes, the popular book character out of a potato completion again at DDs school. Current ideas are Mr Bump (quite common but easy) or some form of princess. She has to bring in the book too and talk about it

Any ideas very gratefully received!

Although possibly not very original!

How old is dc? Humpy Dumpty if young

Captain underpants looks like a potato

Where's Wally? Just draw red and black stripes on it and some glasses on its eyes grin

How about Chip that dreadful Oxford Reading Tree character.

Augustus Gloop?

Is this a real thing by the way? It sounds bonkers. I love it.

The snowman would be doable.
And I reckon you could do a Harry Potter easily with specs and a scar.

The Gruffalo ?

It is very real, unfortunately. DD is nearly 6 so past the toddler book stage. And not keen on boy characters!

Put/paint in red vest and make little ears and put in with cocktail sticks - Winnie the Pooh.

Make a yellow crown for 'Little Princess' by Tony across.

Tony Ross not across.

Harry Potter-tato
Dorothy's dog from Wizard of Oz - Tato
The Spud Fairy

I'd mock up an accompanying Daisy Meadows style book cover and create "Tatum the Potato Fairy" by sticking a wand on the potato.

The chewing gum girl (Violet?) from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory after she turns into a giant blueberry.

Clarice Bean?

I've just googled for some varieties of potato.

How about Charlotte 's Web
Anna of Green Gables
Julius Caesar
The Great Gatsby
Mutiny on the Bounty
anything by George Orwell
Casino Royale

Peel the skin into one long twizzly bit, attach it on to the potato with a drawing pin, draw a face on the potato = Rapunzel performing her letting down of the hair routine.

Great ideas! You should suggest it at your schools confused I'm not at all creative and thought they were taking the nick when the letter came home
She's keen on rapunzel as she knows the story and I'm thinking that can't be too hard

Pur lolly sticks into it to make a hedgehog and add a little cotton cap (a circle of cotton with some running stitches 1cm in to draw it up). Black ink eyes and nose.
Mrs Tiggywinkle!
