World Book Day and Charlie Bucket

World Book Day and Charlie Bucket

Thursday 6th March 2014 was World Book Day. I've been aware of it for a few years now, mainly from panicked online chatter about costumes. Now that Harry is in school, this was the first year that I needed to help him prepare a costume. I might appear crafty, but I've not had a lot of experience with costume making, so I wanted something easy and definitely from a book that he knew and enjoyed. I recently read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to him and he absolutely loved it, so Charlie Bucket seemed like an obvious choice. The most important prop was a Golden Ticket.

There are lots of printable Golden Tickets online. I used the one which I found here - Golden Ticket - because it was simple and high quality. We printed it in colour and then I glued it onto some gold cardboard. The book also contains the full text that was printed on the Golden Ticket, so you could type it all up yourself into a document and then print onto yellow or gold paper.
