Play Dress Up
Everyday items help kids play dress up. Kids play dress up as an opportunity to role-play and dream; the clothes and accessories are the tools kids need to transform into their fantasy character. It takes little more than a cape, hat, mask, old prom dress, gloves, or shoes to inspire a child’s mind. Kids dress up costumes often come from old items around the house as well as garage sale wigs, hats, bathrobes, purses and jewelry. Add tiaras, wands, sports gear and play swords for a wide variety of ideas.
Make an idea box to hold all the magical elements of the kids dress up costumes. Visit www.treasureboxkids.com for children’s clothing and ideas. Be sure to look through our archived blog posts for more activities, fun kids crafts, tips and birthday party ideas.
