the costume corner

As Halloween approaches, I've been trying to think of ways to introduce this kind of crazy holiday to my 15-month-old.  Don't get me wrong, I think Halloween is loads of fun, but it must be pretty confusing to a little person who is just trying to figure out reality.  People dressed as animals?  Masks?  Wigs?  Oh, my...

My solution:  temporarily transform our book nook into a costume corner.  I mean, what better way to explore the idea of wearing a costume than to try on masks and wigs with your friends and family?  In case you can't tell from the above photo, Elise thinks it's great!  ;)

A witch's hat, small masks, wigs, headband ears, and play scarves 
are simple, durable costume accessories for a toddler to experiment with.

Everybody's getting in on the fun!

10 more days 'till Halloween...
