Animal Dress-Up


  • Stuffed animals or dolls
  • Christmas ribbon, bows, or fabric


  1. When decorating your home for the holidays, encourage your child to do some decorating of his own.
  2. Dress up your child's favorite dolls or stuffed animals with some Christmas ribbon or big bright bows or use Christmas fabric to create scarves or kerchiefs.
  3. Display the animals on a shelf in your child's room or on a mantel in a more prominent part of your house.
