Every parent wants their child to participate in every activity conducted at their school. In competitions like fancy dress, parents desire their child to be on top. Some parents get through this ambiguous situation very easily. But few parents find it a little difficult to come up with different themes and ideas for such competitions.
For a preschooler, participating in a fancy dress competition means having fun. Not about winning the competition. If a child is of age group below 3.5, then for kids it is just enough if they go to the stage, stand there for a while, give a smile and come back.
Here are 3 very Interesting and Innovative Fancy Dress Ideas for boys and girls..
This is a quite simple and quick way to dress the child. There are so many readymade fancy dress centers available from where ready made fancy dress costumes can be bought/rented. If parents have a little bit of time, then a costume can be stitched/crafted as well. The event can be made more memorable, enjoyable and educational by involving the child in preparation of costume.
Eg. Mickey Mouse, Tweety, Red Riding Hood, Mermaid etc
Animals or Birds:
As explained above these costumes can be bought, stitched or crafted. Enacting as an endangered species like tiger, lion, deer makes the act more impressive. Depending on the theme and our child’s interest, we could select one animal or bird and make them learn two lines about the same.
For a Nursery child if the child is enacting honey bee then simple 4 lines could be…
I'm a little honeybee.
Yellow and black.
See me gather.
Pollen on my back
More Eg. Zebra, Cat, Crow, Dinosaur, Butterfly etc.
Vegetables or Fruits:
Apart from buying costumes/stitching, beauty full fancy dress outfit can be crafted at home using cardboard, few color paper, sticky tape etc. We can make our child enact as any type of vegetable or fruit he/she wants. We can even attach a head stalk in a cap in case we dress them like a brinjal, chilli etc. it would add much more colour to the costume. In this way an act would come out spectacular, if parent’s creativity and humor gets combined with child’s few lines of innocence.
