Make a monkey costume from things around your home

Updated: Aug 26

Now you have your mask you need a monkey costume. Look around your home for clothes and props you could use. On the next few pages you will see what I found at my house and what next door found. Hopefully this will spark an idea that gets you started.


The woolly hat was a good find for my sock monkey look. Anything woolly would work, jumpers, woolly tights and so on.


Wannabe sock monkeys can’t go wrong with a onesie.


If you haven’t got a onesie try pyjamas

A hoodie and tracksuit bottoms would work as well



Glamourous sock monkey


Red cloth for headwrap

Red polka dot shirt

Tutu - what glamourous items are in your wardrobe?




When is a sock monkey mask ever wrong?


Next door is a monkey musician

While my monkey relaxes in the garden.

Come on, start monkeying around

What’s in your wardrobe that might

make a little monkey magic happen?



Ooer, they mean monkey business. What’s that? They are getting reading for Go Wild, the world’s first socially distanced Carnival? A Waltham Forest Premiere? I say.

Get into your monkey costume, join in our monkey business and Go Wild at home.
