So this year World Book Day didn't catch me out! After some discussion it was Finn's Beano that provided the inspiration and nothing could be more fitting than Dennis the Menace.
Using the World Book Day top tips I got a red long sleeve cotton top and some black fabric paint and painted stripes - much cheaper and better quality than the nylon versions online!
We settled on his thick sweatshirt shorts and some long black football socks and made the hair out of black craft paper.
The catapult was the final touch but went to school without it's missiles!
Luckily Sophie was Angeline Ballerina so required no additional costume creation.
