So. You have ALL the stuff: dresses, hats, necklaces, shoes.
But they are all stuffed in the toy box or a basket with the dolls and trucks and cars, and the kids never play with them.
What you NEED to do is create a kids dress up area!

Creating a specific area and using the dress up items themselves as decor, is a low cost way to decorate and it will ignite the children’s interest in playing dress up!
Reuse a small bookshelf to house your the main items. Hang necklaces from command hooks so they don’t tangle.
Use baskets or pretty boxes to hold hair bows and a brush. Hang hats on the wall or just place on a shelf.
Find a jewelry box at the thrift store to hold rings and earrings and bracelets. I reused a wooden box that I was given when I graduated from high school. I guess it is now an antique. *wink*
If you are brave, you can give them a little bit of old makeup and a mirror and little girls will be in hog heaven. Be sure to corral the makeup in pretty baskets.
Getting these toys out of the toy box and into their own special place makes them more appealing to kids, much easier to find, and they will be played with more often. And BONUS, they make cute decor!
Do you make certain play areas for the children in your life?
