Activity 61 – Dress Up Made Simple!

Age Range – Preschool and Up

Areas Being Developed – Fine motor skills and creativity… all at one time!

Your shirt is it! Other possibilities are a jacket, sweater, or robe. Find one that you don’t mind letting your child wear just for the fun of it. Practice whatever skill is appropriate with this special garment. Here are some choices:

  • Putting on the sleeves
  • Buttoning
  • Zipping
  • Snapping
  • Tying

Help as little or as much as is necessary. Fading out your help should be your goal.


You, your clothes, and all your things are a big draw for your child. How interesting it is that the simplest things of yours can end up being higher on “play-and-learn” effectiveness than many expensive toys.

A Bouquet of Positive Feelings!

This year’s spring clothes colors are amazing. Bring out a bouquet of cheerful garments to enhance the spirit of your play.
