A Dress Up Box for Kids

A dress-up box makes a great gift for your nieces and nephews. Instead of spending a fortune on mass-produced toys, you can stock the box with some of your discarded clothes. Collect neat clothes, uniforms and other "dress-up" items at the local thrift store, which will not only help you fill out the collection, it will help support the needy.

Don't forget to check out garage sales when the warm weather comes, as well! One great thing to buy is costume jewelry!

In Canada we had a children`s TV show called "Mr. Dressup". It was on for a very long time. Mr. Dressup had just such a box. He called it his "Tickle Trunk"...good memories!

For kids who like to dress up you can fill up a box of dress up items from a thrift shop. Also add some accessories from the dollar store. You can also find Halloween reduced costumes in stores. For a boy, a plastic tool box with a handle would be great for his items. Use your imagination for decorating the boxes.

Boy, this brings back memories of my Nana. She always had a dress up box.

It was filled with old frilly dresses, heels, hats, gloves, etc. This was back in the early 50's and I still remember her patience's watching our endless Fashion Shows.

Thanks for sharing.
