    Default *Spin off* What costumes do your kids love?

    The costume storage thread got me thinking. I have a 4 year old DD and a 2 year old DS and we don't have any costumes/dress ups at all. I am thinking we need to start a collection at Christmas, so tell me what your kids love dressing up as.

    I have a 4.5 year old DS and a 2 year old DD, it is all superheroes all the time in this house. They also like anything that's really simple to put on themselves- hats, scarves, necklaces etc. bags of all kinds are very popular too. Things that multitask are good- we have a white coat which can be a dr's coat, vet, scientist, etc. a magnifying glass for being a detective, or a scientist.

    Thanks for the ideas everyone! Interesting how so many are dressing up as superheroes....I am not sure if my kids would even know what they are. I like the idea of looking at garage sales/op shops. Ideas are definitely forming for Christmas.

    Dd is only 19 months and she has an Elsa dress, a fairy dress and a few tutu skirts. Hers are kept in her cupboard.

    I have a 4 yo DS and a 2 yo DD

    Their favorite costumes are: Police, Elsa, Pirate, Fairy, Firefighter and Spiderman.

    I would say dress ups are there favourite activity, it is rare that at least one of them is not dressed up as something!
