Dressing up is big time popular in this house. We have enough dress-ups to clothe a small army, and still there are more and more and more ideas for new outfits popping out of the girl’s heads at a rate of knots.
But what about the Small Boy?
Muski loves to dress up too… but he hasn’t got the concentration or the skills to manage complicated outfits. Getting dress and tops over his head is all too much. Not to mention doing up velcro or buttons or teaming a gaudy cape with equally wild pants. All that is way too hard for an almost two year old.
But he still wants to join in on the fun… so what is a toddler to do?
Hats and bags… that is the answer. With a couple of necklaces and bracelets thrown in for good measure.
A toddler can have hours of fun with some crazy hats and wonderful bags. Big, small, straw, or fuzzy hats. Grandmas best opera clutch bag, or a funky cotton tote bag. Choose chunky necklaces with BIG beads that can stand up to a lot of muscle… you don’t want broken necklaces and a floor covered in tiny beads… not fun for anyone!
Hats and necklaces and bracelets are easy enough for small people to get on and of by themselves so they can change outfits just as many times as the big girls do. And bags… bags are good for all kinds of things… not least of which, stealing your sisters biscuit and stashing it away in a bag…
So go now… Scour the back of the wardrobe, take a trip to Grandma’s or the op-shop (thrift store) and find your toddler some hats and bags and then grab the camera… it’s sure to be good fun!
