Where do you like to go all dressed up in fun costumes?
We use any excuse we can to dress up. But, here are some fun places to take your kids all dressed up this summer in their favourite costume:
Medieval Fairs, Fairies in the Park, Pagan Festivals, check out your area for fun local events to go to. Some may even be free, but dressing up is a great way to help your kids enjoy the festival more, and you too. Why can’t you dress-up too!
Does your family like to go to Comicon? Why not dress up the kids to enjoy the fun too? It is also an easy way to spot everyone in a crowd when people wander off to look at different stalls.
Turn a fun play date at the park into a magical time by letting them wear their costumes to play.
Gymnastics and play centers
Nothing more fun than running around in your costume with a bunch of kids! Plus it is easier to spot your kid in a crowd!
Walk in the Woods (or the muggle road)
Play fairies and dragons and dress up to go for a fun walk in the forest, maybe you will even spot a fairy or two! Also fun for normal walks too!
Bring some magic and fun to your campsite. A great way to embrace the woods and have fun playing at the same time.
Review of Little Adventures
I had the amazing chance to review some costumes from Little Adventures. I was so excited. The site had so many options on costumes to wear, even for adults. I can tell you I was eyeing their adult cloaks pretty closely! My four-year-old daughter immediately ran up behind me to help pick out a costume. To no surprise she jumped on the fairy costumes, we settled on a cute pink one with a rainbow skirt. She loved it! She asked all the time when her costume would come in the mail so she could dress up! My two-year-old son crawled into my lap and watched me debate which knight costumes to get him (I wanted to get a picture of my fairy and knight since that’s my blog’s name after all!) but as soon as he got a look at the dragon cloaks he made it clear he wanted to be a dragon. So I got him the dragon cloak, if he wants it who am I to over-rule him!
My son loves his dragon cloak. He is two-years-old so pretty much everything he does is adorable, but putting on that cloak and running around roaring like a dragon………. the height of adorable. Particularly when wearing just a diaper and the cloak. He loves roaring and having the cloak on just makes it way more fun. My daughter now calls him her pet dragon and he follows her around like a dog. He also mysteriously has started asking to read lots of dragon stories and have me sing him dragon songs too (Puff the Magic Dragon). I believe the cloak and his imaginary play inspire it a lot.
He has a hard time keeping the cloak on straight with all of his running around and spinning so we have to help him adjust a lot. But, he adores costumes to dress up in. He will be wearing this a few places for sure this Spring and Summer.
First thing, my daughter’s Rainbow Fairy Costume comes with a tag saying machine washable, magic! I have no time to hand wash so this is amazing news to a mom’s ears. My daughter was on me from the time the package arrived to see her outfit. She gasped and couldn’t wait to put on the dress. I find the sizes fit small, or I got the wrong size, but it’s a little tight on her. It’s like a body suit so she has trouble getting it on herself and has had at least one accident as she couldn’t get it off in time to go pee. But once it’s on, she transforms into a beautiful fairy. She has worn it each day this week, she absolutely LOVES it. Wants to wear it to school, for walks, playing in the backyard, she would probably sleep in it if I let her. The quality is amazing and I think it would really hold up to a four-year-old’s wear and tear. I know this outfit will get a lot of wear for us. She is already begging to wear it for Halloween, six and a half months away!
I would definitely order from this site again. The quality is just so good, and the prices aren’t bad. Way better than a costume, it will last longer and hold up better. My mother is already asking if she should get them costumes of Little Adventures for their next birthdays.
Here are some of the things on my wish list that I hope to get eventually, with maybe a few items for me.
What was your favourite costume growing up? Do you look for excuses for your kids to dress up and enjoy the fun too!
