BaileysMummy - March 6

Friday is dress up day at my sons daycare (he's 14 months old). He has to be dressed up as a favourite book character or sportsman. I'm trying to think of some cute ideas, but I'm not very creative, I'd love to hear some suggestions!

did he dress up for halloween? if so, is it possible to reuse his costume, just change the "idea" of it, so that it represents a character?

I agree with mellissa...or you could go to a costume store and get things for here and there for really cheap since it is off season.

You could try pajamas that have spiderman or superman or something like that if you can't find costumes right now.

We're in Australia and don't celebrate halloween, so there are no old costumes lying around. He has had a dress up day before, I put some tigger pyjamas on him, coloured in his nose with lipstick and drew whiskers on his face...it was so cute. I was thinking maybe Bob the Builder this time, he could wear overalls, a hat and take a plastic hammer with him

Hi Mel, i am not sure what yor are or not allowed to take to day care but i would just ask if the p[lastic hammer was allowed? Why not old mac donald had a farm? You could Dress him overalls, a hat and take a stuffed animal toy like a cow or somthing?

How about Tom Sawyer? Overalls and no shoes...



I was going to say Harry Potter but Mcatherine's idea sounds really good.

What about Peter Rabbit? Considering Easter isn't too far away so you should be able to find some bunny ears in the shops, put some blue overalls on him with a black nose & whiskers. Did peter rabbit carry a basket too? Or he could be one of the Three Bears from Goldilocks -if he has a brown shirt and shorts he'd just need some whiskers!

Bob the builder is a great idea! :)

What about the kid from "Where the wild things are?" Put him in a white sleeper, pin a tail on his behind, and make a paper crown.

oooh - I like suzyq's idea. :-) scarecrow from wizard of oz - I had a friend do this and it was really cute - overalls, straw, paint on his face, funny hat.
