It not only fuels a child's imagination and creativity but also helps discover the inclination of interest in the professional sphere. It is that time of the year when you get to be as mighty as your superhero, as dashing as your favourite actor or maybe just a potato. Most costumes are just reflections of your personality and must be designed by linking your personal interests with the attire.

If you lack inspiration for children's fancy dresses, here are some quirky ideas for the children's day coming up next week. 

A fierce pirate 


All you need to dress your kid as a pirate is a plain white shirt. a large hat, dark coloured overcoat and an eye patch. Begin by curling the hair into little mini shaped clips. The more clips the merrier. Apply kajal on the lower eyelids. Tie a ribbon onto the hat to give it the piratish look. Have fun hijacking the show!
