Make Your Little Girl’s Dress Up Dream Come True

Remember when you were young and you used to raid your mother’s closet and dress up? Remember h fun it was to dress up and pretend you’re all grown up? Why not give your little girl a chance to get lost in a fantasy world run by her imagination and her choice of clothes? The answer is simple = Make her a dress up box!

What is a dress up box?

A dress up box is a box (or a crate, trunk, or if you can afford it, you can just buy her an actual wardrobe/cabinet) that contains things your daughter can use whenever she wants to play dress up. Learn about games for girls on

What to put in a dress up box?

Variety is key. Let your girl have a lot of choices that she can mix and match. And you do not need to buy costumes or clothes... look around you for things that you no longer use but your child can still play with. Here is a list of suggestions:

  • Scarves or shawls and gloves
  • Short dresses that no longer fit you
  • Purses and wallets
  • Sunglasses, fake eye glasses (or pop the lenses out of an old pair of eyelasses), preferrably with plastic lenses for safety
  • Clip-on earrings, cheap jewelry, plastic tiara
  • Headbands, hair clips, ribbons, and bows
  • Kid-safe and washable make up
  • Halloween costumes
  • Hats or wigs
  • Feather boa
  • Fabric of different lengths and colors

While you are still in the process of setting up your daughter’s dress up box, you can keep her preoccupied by letting her play games for girls in your phone or gadget. Playing dress up online is just as fun as dressing up for real and it will keep your little preoccupied for hours, which you can take advantage of if you need some time to do chores in the house or work.
