For ages 1 – 8 years
A dress-up box is magical! Children can be whoever they want to be. When they dress up, they can create a story and special world. They can even go on an adventure. This will build their imagination, creativity and storytelling. You could dress up, too!
What do I need?
- Box to keep your dress-ups in
How do I do it?
- Your dress-up box can be any container you have available. (A box with a lid makes your child’s play even more exciting!)
- Place all your dress-up items in the box.
- As your child dresses up, they can create characters and talk about:
- who they are,
- what they are doing
- where they are going.
No-one knows your child better than you. So, choose and/or adapt ideas here to best suit you and your child. Remember it’s the talking and time spent together that matters most.
