What can I wear for Halloween? (Charlie and Lola)

on October 24, 2013

(Since my co-worker and I are going to be Charlie and Lola for Halloween storytime, we figured we ought to have them as part of the program. This is my adaptation from the TV series. The pieces are made from construction paper, and will be used puppet-like with the costume bits stuck on with double sided tape.)


I have this little sister Lola



She’s small and very funny. Tomorrow night is Halloween so there’s going to be a special party and we’ll all wear Halloween costumes.

-What are you going to dress up as Charlie?

I’m going as a wizard!

-Guess what I’m going as Charlie! Snap snap

You went as an alligator last year.

-I’m not an alligator, I’m a crocodile. Crocodiles are more scary and spooky than alligators.

You can’t go in the same costume.

-I’ll have to think of something else.

You could be a wicked witch.


-Everybody will be going as a wicked witch, Charlie. I want to go as something different.

How about a wiggly spider.


-Ummm, I’m not sure about spiders Charlie.

You could be a sea monster.


-Too slimy!

How about a bony skeleton Lola!


-Too scary Charlie! Umm, I don’t know what to go as. 

You’ll think of something Lola, should we go check on our surprise?

-Oh Yes, Charlie!


-That is actually the biggest pumpkin I have every seen. It is big and orangy as the sun!

It will be the best jack-o-lantern in all of Halloween!

-I can’t believe we grew this from a tiny little seed.

Now It’s time to carry it inside, so we can carve the pumpkin face!

-It will be the halloweniest thing at the party.

Lift it carefully, carefully, no wobbling.


-Oh, it’s too heavy Charlie! I’m dropping it!


Oh no! Now our Halloween surprise is ruined. It won’t be a Halloween party without a jack-o-lantern.

-It doesn’t matter, I haven’t got a costume anyway. Ohh! I’ve just had the most brilliant idea! Back in a  bit Charlie.


-Now we can have a jack-o-lantern, and I have a costume!

You’ll be the biggest orangyest pumpkin in the whole of Halloween! That’s definitely the best dressing up costume.
