    Maths themed fancy dress - any ideas?

    This Friday is maths day at school and the children can go in maths themed fancy dress.

    I am stumped! Any ideas?

    We have already had money themed fancy dress and he has been a bank robber and a city banker.

    TIA

    The only thing I can think of is a series of 0 and 1 all over a T-Shirt: 'Binary Boy'

    But he is only 6!

    A triangle? Pointy hat and a tshirt with a straight bit at the bottom?

    Or a ruler? White tshirt with horizontal lines on one side?

    How about he wears a big box and you could draw calculator buttons on it?

    Maximillion & Jamsplat, thanks for your suggestions. I like the idea of a calculator as it is something he will understand.

    I bet all the other Mums are paper mache-ing all over the place- LOL. If it's anything like the Easter Bonnet parade, very competitive!!

    What about a ruler? Just put marks in the right places all the way down his body?

    Going with Kellys ruler / measuring idea, why not go to a pound shop, get a load of cloth / dressmakers measuring tapes and put one as a band around a hat, one as a bow tie / tie, one as a belt? Perhaps cut one in half and lace his shoes with it (or just tie tape bows onto his shoe)? Tuck a ruler or protractor into his chest pocket? He could be measuring boy?

    When we've had something like this at our infant school it has mainly been any top with a number on it! Nothing fancy at all! Even those who did make an effort only wrote numbers all over a plain t-shirt!

    :)

    How old? I'd do a ladybird with lots of dots on. Or a spider with 8 legs. Or maybe a dice, although it needs to be practical to sit down in I guess.

    Find a plain white t-shirt and draw a calculator on it
