For the Older Ones (5 – 11)
Some cheap circular frames from the pound shop, an old school jumper and shirt, and a hand drawn scar on their forehead will make any kid look like the wizarding hero!
Become Harry’s clever and loyal friend with an old school shirt and skirt, and some old-looking books. Get that frizzy hair look by backcombing their hair – or put their hair in plaits the night before so it’s frizzy for the morning.
Slightly older than others on this list, Gandalf is still a recognisable classic. Old halloween costumes could work for the hat and beard, or visit a local joke store or pound shop. Then just add an old grey or white coat or dressing gown to complete the regal wizard look.
A go-to – Mary Poppins can be done with a button coat, a white shirt, an umbrella, and one of mum or gran’s hats!
The great thing about dressing up as Dr Who, is that your kids have so many iterations to choose from! A simple shirt and bowtie, a colourful scarf and hat, or plain old dungarees will have them looking like a version of the Time Lord in no time. Just don’t forget their sonic screwdriver!
