D is for Dress Up!
We've always had a few items for dress up that came out with various dramatic play themes but this year I decided to look for a "station" specifically for dress up. It was a lot harder to find something that wasn't too expensive but would also fit in the space we have. We ended up with this cute little organizer. For the price I wasn't expecting much but it seems very durable and the kids love it.
C. ended up at a train conductor more often than not this week.
Who says that dress up is only for "little" kids. A.'s had a lot of fun with it also. So my goal is to find some larger items that will fit the bigger kids a bit better.
So fun to watch them walk around in those shoes!
When I was looking for a station I wanted a mirror for sure. A mirror always adds another dimension to play. I wanted more than a "tub" since I wished for the children to practice with hanging items up on hangers. The plush brief case that came with the "gentlemen's set" from www.discountschoolsupply.com has turned into a suitcase. So they are also getting folding practice. I didn't place all of our dress up out because often in this case "less is more", I'll just switch some items out next week, keeping a few of the favorites.
