Now that Halloween is over and you are packing away your Halloween decorations and costumes until it’s time to bring them out again for next year--you may want to give some items a second glance. Kids costumes are certainly not just for Halloween use anymore. If you noticed how much fun your child had getting all dressed up in his or her Halloween outfit, then you already know how exciting it was for your child to role play a new and exciting character on Halloween night. Dressing up is fun for children on any day, and costumes are great for imaginative playtime to make their daily creative adventures more realistic as well as exciting. Costumes also make fabulous Christmas presents and you will want to be sure your kids find their favorites under the Christmas tree on Christmas morning. Now is a great time to find some fabulous deals on many of our costumes, too. Your child is going to love dressing up as his favorite characters all year round.
With fall in full-throttle now, your thoughts are probably also quickly turning to the upcoming holiday season. A favorite holiday amongst many, but one that often gets a bit lost or even overlooked during the Christmas shuffle is that of Thanksgiving. It’s highly possible that your child is learning about the Pilgrims, The Mayflower, Native Americans and the early Colonists in school during the autumn months. If you are looking for an authentically styled costume for your child to dress up in for a school or community Thanksgiving-themed event, we have many appropriate styles to choose from. History can come alive and will also be more meaningful to any child with a proper costume to role-play any historic and time-honored Thanksgiving character, from Squanto all the way to Myles Standish. We even have an adorable rendition of a Thanksgiving turkey! Don’t miss the opportunity to dress up and get into the spirit of gratitude and appreciation by celebrating this traditional holiday in bona fide style.
Even though it’s time to say goodbye to Halloween this year, you can hold onto the memories you’ve made by leaving those costumes out for your kids to dress up in and play with for a little while longer. Learning about historic figures at school and watching interesting characters on TV and in the movies is one thing, dressing up as and ‘becoming’ them during playtime is quite another. Let your child’s imagination soar while taking advantage of fall’s many golden opportunities that teach kids things about life, the world, as well as historic events--all while having some pretty serious fun through the creative use of costumes!
