Clothes make a statement. Costumes tell a story.
What a better way to showcase a story than through children’s costumes. Dress up play for kids goes so much further than just for Halloween. It helps engage children’s brain development, and memory. It builds language and vocabulary and problem solving skills. when you child engages in role-play, and dress up, it helps them view the world in another way, creating empathy, and more emotional development. The act of dressing up, pulling zippers and buttoning buttons helps fine motor skill development. Dress up can also lead to gender exploration – it is fun to dress up in an costume, regardless of gender stereotype! Most importantly, we believe that dress up helps create a child’s imagination, there are no limits through dress up… Don’t we all love grocery shopping at your local store, and see a little superhero trucking down the isle?!
To reinforce the above, we wanted to showcase some kids costumes that we love this season.
