You have a bit of time to create your child's Roald Dahl costume - here are a few suggestions...
Purple or dark red jacket (actually any vibrant colour will do!). Add a top hat and cane, and use some ribbon or a scarf to create a bow tie.
Dress in a green outfit – t-shirt and trousers or leggings. To create the crocodile head use a cereal box painted green, or covered in green material or paper. Bubble wrap painted green covering the box makes a great scale effect. If you have lots of bubble wrap you could create a scaly cloak too! Use white card stuck to the cereal box for the crocodile's eyes and teeth.
Two large pieces of cardboard (or a cardboard box) attached together with two pieces of ribbon or string to form shoulder straps. Cover cardboard with gold paint, paper or a disposable gold table cloth. Write Wonka Golden Ticket in giant letters. This can then be worn over any normal clothes.

Most people remember the Oompa-Loompas best from the Gene Wilder film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. You'll need orange face paint, a green wig and white trousers or dungarees!
James wears ordinary clothes, so put your creative energy into creating your very own papier-mache giant peach. You can decorate it with drawings or photos of insects. Top it off with seagulls for a really spectacular effect like our James pictured above.
Don't forget, yellow was Roald Dahl's favourite colour so you can join in the Dahlicious Dress Up Day by wearing anything yellow.
