We're almost half way through the summer school holidays here in the UK, and for those of us with little ones to keep busy, if you're anything like me you've probably near exhasuted the list of crafty activities you had planned! The six week break from school can be expensive, and with the weather forecast looking, well, a bit under the weather, we thought it would be a great idea to share some of the cutest, handmade kids costumes, perfect for a rainy day! Regardless of whether you have a costume, fancy dress party or even the Halloween festivities to prepare for, children just love playing dress-up, and this kind of activity can buy you a whole day's worth of entertainment getting crafty, with lots more role-play fun to be had after too. Why not crack out the cardboard, tin foil and other household bits and bobs, and get making your own handmade costume? Here are some of our favourites to get you started...
