Now that Halloween is over, the girls can use the headdress and mask for play. They enjoy dressing up, pretending, and creating their own stories/plays. Am interested in seeing how they use the headdress in play.

They could spend hours each day playing - creating stories with rather involved plots and characters. Having a variety of costumes, fabric, and miscellaneous items (open-ended toys, essentially) gives them a wider range in their play. They are not limited by what the costume or item dictates.

I continue to be fascinated with how they transform everyday items into their stories and play.
