With Halloween coming up I thought it would be fun to play dress ups with Emma and see how many kids costume ideas we could put together with just the items we had at home and already in her wardrobe. Dressing up is a fun way for kids to explore different parts of their personality and interests, challenge gender roles and foster their imaginative process. When kids dress up they can be anything, and aren’t limited by the ‘rules’ of the real world.
Putting together fun costumes for dress ups and imaginative play doesn’t have to be expensive, you probably have lots of useful stuff at home already.
We put these costumes together with some of the items from Emma’s costume box (mostly picked up for a few dollars at the thrift store), but most were just her everyday clothing with a little twist. Add a couple of my accessories, little make-up, and we managed to put together four fun costumes that Emma loved, with not a single cent spent.
I’ve listed what we’ve used for each costume so you can easily put one together too.
