There are only six costumes (or rather types of costumes, because there are various ideas under each one), which is why I only gave this book 4 stars - we just need more of it!
These costumes are mostly made of things you would normally put into the recycling e.g. egg boxes, plastic bottles, cardboard boxes etc. but the results actually look good. (There are some exceptions e.g. needing a T-shirt or some pipe lagging, but nothing should be difficult or expensive to get hold of.) The ideas may sometimes be a little time-consuming but it's a nice activity you can do with your child, rather than doing it all for them!
