It seems like within a flash Book Week is here again and while it is all about celebrating books and the joys of reading, it can be a stressful time for parents.
Costume selection can often be left to the last minute or unfortunately to the night before. So, it’s time to get organised and make everyone’s life a little easier. At Discount Party Warehouse we have something for everyone and every budget.
The theme this year is “Find Your Treasure”. While the first thought that most people have is pirates and pirates treasure, the theme can mean so much more! It’s about finding treasure in your next book. The first question is what is your child’s favourite book? Will your child find their treasure in...
Being a Pirate?
Ahoy me matey – there’s treasure to be found in them high seas. From getting the complete pirate costume to just adding accessories to complete an outfit– we have it all. A pirate must have is an eye patch and a pirate hat, mixed with items from your own wardrobe and shiver me timbers, you are a pirate. Add some gold coins for treasure (chocolate or non chocolate) and landlubbers beware.
Being a character from a Fairytale?
“Once you’re grown up you can’t come back” says Peter Pan – let your kids work out what their favourite character is from their favourite fairytale. Is it Peter Pan? Red Riding Hood? Snow White? Classic Fairy tale characters that need no explanation and the costumes are timeless.
