Story Time: Fashion!

by | Feb 9, 2021 | Blog, Kid's Corner, Story Time | 0 comments

Lights! Camera! It’s fashion! This week we learned that “F” is for fashion, and “fashion” can help you express how you are feeling, where you want to go, and what is good for the weather outside.

Join us live Tuesdays at 10:30 AM  – Online on Facebook

Ages 2-5

Sing, Talk, Read, Write, Play

Tip

“Dress-up play allows anyone to dream, hope, and use their imagination. It gives kids permission to pretend to be someone or something different and extraordinary that reflects their personality and current interests and promotes more independence by allowing kids to practice self-care skills.”

- Thegeniusofplay.org

Activity

Gather a bunch of clothes and have a dress-up fashion show. Talk about what each clothing item is used for, what weather would be good in which to wear it, and where you might go in each outfit. You can also take some old clothes and “remake” them into something new!
