Hopping Through the Outback

Kids love to have fun and playing dress up is always something that turns a boring afternoon into one full of laughter.  Here are my two little kangaroos transported into the outback while they squeeze into last year’s Halloween costumes.  I have to admit, I giggle myself as I see them go from Disney Princesses one minute to hopping joeys the next.

I love that they enjoy it because playing dress up is a great way for them to develop their imagination.  For little ones and older kids, playing dress up is a great way to develop social skills as well.  Pretending to be strong super heroes, gentle princesses or scary animals gives them different roles to explore.

The best thing about dress up is a child’s imagination is powerful enough to make even a bath towel feel like a super hero’s cape!

Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
