Dressing Up in Fairy Wings

| January 29, 2013

I simply couldn’t resist these fairy wings when I saw them. As soon as Imogen spied them it was love at first sight and she was dressing up in fairy wings with her purple wellies.

Toddlers and children have great fun dressing up and role playing. It encourages children to use their imaginations, develop vocabulary skills and build confidence.

Often your children have the most fun dressing up when they’re making use of clothes and items you already have in your home. Check your wardrobe and cupboards for:

  • towels and sheets (these make great capes)
  • a plastic colander (can become a helmet)
  • belts
  • scarves
  • shawls
  • gloves of all lengths
  • old bags
  • aprons
  • tutus
  • dance costumes
  • hats
  • glasses with the lenses removed
  • costume jewellery (make sure it’s safe for the age of your child)

There’s no end to what your toddler or child can dress up in and pretend to be so update and add new items to your child’s dressing up box as often as you like.

If you’re looking for fairy wings for your toddler to play dress up in there’s a beautiful set including a Tutu, Butterfly Wings and a Wand at John Lewis.
