One Dress-Up Box
In that chest or box, there could be your grandmother’s old-fashioned shoes, her hat with a feather, someone’s old gun holster that fits on a belt, a cowboy hat, and some cowboy boots. There might be a few dresses for princesses so that a little girl can look like Cinderella in a blue dress; Snow White in a yellow, red, and blue dress; or another princess in a green velvet dress. There are feathered boas, tiaras, a wedding veil, high-heeled shoes in a couple of colors, long white dress gloves for ladies, a blond wig, and a gnarly mustache.
Another Dress-Up BoxSomeone else’s dress-up box might have an old mink coat and hat with some of the mink missing, a beret, a stove pipe hat, and a cane. A pop gun with a coonskin cap and leather coat would make any little boy feel like Daniel Boone. Somehow, a graduation gown and cap made its way into the box. There should be some knees-highs in there too, because they end up covering their whole leg just like their mommy’s panty hose. All you have to do is make the dress-up box accessible by putting it in a play room, kid’s room, or basement. Make sure you have your video camera charged so that when the you see your kids dressing up, you will be able to catch on camera their adorable faces and their attempts at mimicking the adults in their life along with all of the folk heroes and movie characters that they love.
