Now here is an idea for Christmas gifts that will give MANY hours of creative play all year long!
Dress-up has been one of our kids’ very favorite pastimes. We always rewarded our kids for Scripture memory, and a couple of them chose costumes for Bible memory rewards. It’s a great way to role play being useful adults. Melissa and Doug offers a wide assortment to choose from, and we used many of these.
We also like historical costumes. It was not uncommon to hear our kids playing “Washington Crossing the Delaware” or “Sgt. York at the Battle of the Argonne”.
On Thanksgiving, the kids would always dress up, some as Indians and some as Pilgrims. They’d act out the first Thanksgiving.
Of course, we had cowboys and cowgirls galore, brides, Southern Belles, and Robert E. Lee, too. One of my daughters would get up each morning and I never quite knew “who” she could be that day…she had such fun dressing up!
Here’s some fun costumes I think your kids might enjoy,too! Have fun!
