I shared this idea on my Facebook page a few days ago, but finally got a chance to visit a few stores today!
Christmas is just around the corner…but that doesn’t mean we can’t take advantage of a few Halloween sales! I’m putting together an “Imagination Trunk” for Big Brother for Christmas with several items great for pretend play–costumes. Believe it or not, allowing children opportunities to pretend and use their imagination (while dressed up) is fostering their development. Pretend play is an important part of early childhood education!
I was able to snag all four of these costumes–Firefighter, Doctor, Buzz Lightyear, and Thomas the Train–for $20 (or $5 a piece)!
Our Toys ‘R Us had all of their costumes 75% off and Target had theirs 50% off (but are supposedly going to 75% off tomorrow). I haven’t been able to find any stellar online deals, but if you do let me know…
We’re going to throw all these in an old suitcase and watch as Big Brother’s imagination runs wild this Christmas!
