You can help your children enjoy the adventure even more this half term with homemade kids’ costumes.
This space-age adventurer is set to explore galaxies in his cardboard space suit. Make out-of-the world costumes with: one cardboard box, plastic cup inserts for his arms and legs and one can of silver spray-paint for a polished, sci-fi finish. It’s so simple and your little comets will enjoy helping out too!
Your daughters and her friends can wear green t-shirts and pollen headdresses to create a beautiful bouquet of sunflowers. Deflated yellow balloons pinned to a black headband will work as pretty petals. Wrap a black bin liner around the headband as a hat to recreate the flower’s centre. Add a light coat of PVC glue over the balloons to give them shape.
The little king is an easy yet effective look to recreate from home. Dress him in a one-piece, using his dressing gown as a cape and a makeshift crown will add a real regal air. This shouldn’t take up too much of your time; cut triangular shapes out of gold paper and staple the paper ends together to make the crown. Don’t forget to measure the paper around his head before you start.
