Have a look at these that you can create in any way you like, or make your own beautiful trumpetists.

Create imaginative costumes for adults and children

Shrovetide is one of the only times each year when your imagination can have free rein. There is no limit to the creativity you and your children can enjoy– like creating a beautiful, unique costume for the big party when you can knock the cat out of the barrel.

At Creativ Company, we have everything you need to make the costumes yourself, with all the accessories you could imagine, such as a nurse, a knight, or a lion. When you click on the costume or disguise that you want to make, you will also receive a list of the materials that you'll need. Nothing is binding. Of course, you can make all the fun and creative changes you want.

For example, you could add a face masku as part of the costume. Face masks are super fun to make. Both children and adults can enjoy decorating the masks with everything from paint, feathers and rhinestones to , glitter and natural elements.

Great face paint for everyone

In addition to the clothes and accessories themselves, there is another really nice activity you can do together, which has a huge effect on the Shrovetide costume. For a lot of costumes, it makes sense to add some colour to the face. Will your child be a dangerous lion, a scary dinosaur, a majestic giraffe, a beautiful princess, or a cool Spiderman? Yes, help is also available for creative face painting.

Face painting instructions contain an image by image guide, showing you what to paint. In this way, everyone – regardless of their creative abilities and imagination – can create great face paint. There's just something very special about wearing face paint. It completes your costume in a way that no other accessory can.

Of course, it’s not only fun to dress up during Shrovetide. Halloween is also becoming more and more popular. On this page, you can also find a guide to face painting that fits perfectly with Halloween costumes – such as mummies, pirates, bird faces, or disguises with wounds.

You may also want to throw a themed dress up party, or a children’s birthday party that requires guests to dress up. If so, you can also find a lot of inspiration here for everyone's costumes.

Decorate with homemade ornaments for Shrovetide –  at home and at the Shrovetide party

The time is approaching. Your costume is ready, or at least planned. You are going to have a Shrovetide party at home, at school, or you just love decorating for each special occasion. Then it is fortunate that this page contains a lot of wonderful inspiration for how you can make Shrovetide, the barrel, and the ornaments extra fun to look at.

Make a Sunday before Shrovetide even more fun by sitting down and creating a wide range of cute rattling creatures on sticks. You can put them in pot plants, walk around rattling them, or whatever you like. They are pretty and can be clowns, cats, ducks, pirates, and princesses.

You can also make your own figures and shapes to decorate your home's Shrovetide ris. Decorating Shrovetide ris can be done using almost anything you have on hand, such as crepe paper, EVA foam, cardboard, small eyes, feathers, and much more.

In addition, you can make flag banners, decorate the barrel itself, decorate the walls with papier mâché glitter masks, and make your very own royal king and queen crowns for the winners.

What do you and your children dream of dressing up as? An animal? A witch, or maybe a postman? No matter what direction the costume is headed in, and how much you want to get out of it, there is definitely some creative input on this page that you can use to make the right outfit for the day.
