There are so many reasons for kids to dress-up between July and December. Of course we have the most obvious one HALLOWEEN. Whooo Hooo! But don’t stop the fun after just one day. We all love Halloween and kids of all ages love pretending. Limiting imagination to just one day a year seems, well…criminal. Never underestimate the power of play.
www.halloweencostumehideout.com has more ideas to help finish out the year and get the family ready for the BIG day….HALLOWEEN, but before then, we have a few extra reasons to put on your make-up. Dressing-up can show our appreciation for men and women in many different occupations, as well as serve as a reminder or educational tool. Here are 6 more reasons to dress-up through-out the year.
July-Show Veterans our appreciation and dress as a member of your favorite branch of service for the 4th of July. A soldier or a military Dr. or Nurse. Of course soldiers, need the help of many people in order to be successful and safe, so have the kids’ pick their way of showing their appreciation for our Independence and for the people that have fought for us over the course of history
August-Renaissance Fairs and Shakespeare Festivals are just too much fun to not go to at least one, in full costume.
September-Going back to school means toga parties for some, but for others it can just mean a great reason to learn about Roman Warriors and Greek Mythology. Every little girl has always wanted to be a princess, what about a Greek Goddess. Culture is so much fun to learn about and just sticks so much better with costumes and visuals.
October-HALLOWEEN OF COURSE!!!! How could we be stumped for October?? So many things to be, how do we decide? This one has got to be a freebie.
November-Give Thanks to those wonderful Pilgrims and Indians for giving us a fantastic reason to get together with our friends and loved ones to give Thanks for all the things we are grateful for throughout the year. Have half the class dress as Pilgrims and the other half as Indians and practice the lost art of sharing.
December-Who wouldn’t want their chance to dress like the Big Man and his little helpers? If you are like me and are1.5 feet too short to be taken seriously as Santa, there are always his Awesome helpers. The Elves are simply not appreciated enough. Of course you could always wear a Buddy the Elf Costume if you are tall enough to be Santa, but his job just seems too stressful.
