|« Make your own Wooden Toys!||The Montessori Way »|
When you were a teenager, you probably had no idea what career you wanted to pursue, yet ask your toddlers, and they know already...nurse, train driver, pilot, doctor, police officer, spaceman?! Your local toy shops undoubtedly stock a great range of dressing up outfits, and toddlers love nothing more than dressing up as superheroes, fairies, princesses or professionals. You don't have to go to the expense of buying expensive clothes for your kids to enjoy dressing up in. Tucked away in your wardrobe, you probably have some clothes that you haven't worn in a long time, and most likely have no intention of wearing again?! Why not turn these into some fun dressing up outfits for your children. Some of them may not resemble any outfit that they might want to wear, but they'll simply love that it's a garment that you used to wear - it's not important that it isn't a superhero costume or fairy outfit, all that matters is that they can dress up like mommy and daddy!
Some garments that you're willing to pass down to the next generation might be adapted into fun outfits with just a small amount of work. Do you have brightly coloured clothes that could might be turned into a pirate outfit? Old white T-shirts that could be turned into a doctor or nurse outfit with just a few accessories drawn on with fabric pen? ...or maybe some garments that could literally be cut into shreds and sewn onto a T-shirt to create Peter Pan, Robinson Crusoe or even a fairy costume? Just a small amount of talent and a little bit of imagination can go a long way, and your kids will simply adore a good box of clothes to dress in and take on new personalities!
