What's in the dress up box...

  • Hats
  • Purses
  • Old halloween costumes (animals, superheros, etc.)
  • Costume jewelery and beaded necklaces
  • Bandanas
  • Old sports uniforms
  • Play cell phones
  • Aprons and wooden spoons
  • Clip-on ties
  • Plastic high-heels (I totally loved these when I was a little girl, and now my girls do too!)
  • Tap dance shoes
  • Gloves
  • Pom-poms
  • Skirts
  • Tulle--yards of it!
  • Sunglasses, fake reading glasses
  • Wings
  • Princess dresses
  • Outdated bridesmaid/prom dresses
  • Scrubs
  • Wedding veil or fake flowers for a bouquet
Check for all these items at yard sales or thrift stores, even in your own closet. The Dress Up Box is a favorite with my kids and pretty much all of our young visitors! You won't regret building a collection of items that keep your kids independently entertained while exercising their imagination.
