If there is one thing that unites all kids it is dressing up in funny costumes. Dressing up in a costume takes play one step further and gives children a chance to ‘be’ their favourite character.
It is something that stays with a child all his/her life and gives a child the chance to express themselves in a new way as well as practicing their new superhuman powers on mum and dad! Even adults can remember getting dressed as their favourite character be it Superman and Catwoman.
There are so many choices for everyone and it can be slightly bewildering for children as well as parents. Here are some tips to help you decide: First, let your kid decide who s/he wants to be. Don’t forget that it is their costume and they are the ones that have to wear it.
Spend time together looking at ideas. Choosing a costume can be great fun so why not look through ideas discussing options and talking about various ideas as you go. Kids change their minds frequently (they probably get that from their parents) so once they have decided on one just check for sure that they haven’t changed their mind when you buy it.
