Color My Wardrobe

Very simple idea. Inexpensive. The best gift ever!

My daughter received a Crayola: Color My Wardrobe craft kit for her birthday in April. She just loves it. Not only does it stimulate creative thinking, but also role play and hours of fun. She still has dresses left to decorate after all of these months. It is something fun to do with her older sister as well. After making numerous designs, they hold fashion shows with the cardboard doll to share their new creations with the family.

I'll have to confess, I designed a few dresses myself. Hubby even made a camo-dress. What a great Dad- designing dresses with his daughters!
(Don't tell anyone. He, He!)

And Dad's famous......

Camo Dress

Although this product is inexpensive, you could make your own cardboard doll and cut out dress patterns for your child. Use small pieces of Velcro to attach the dresses to the doll. Also, you can use other art supplies such as ribbon, little fabric flowers, or glitter glue to decorate the dresses.

Enjoy your day and have fun being creative!

Love it! Will have to get this for my daughter - she would adore this! Maybe it will save me from doing so much laundry??! She seems to go through at least 6 outfit changes a day!!! Thanks for posting!
