A few weeks ago my three year old son decided that he liked getting himself dressed. He picked out the outfit above and put everything on by himself including his socks.
He was so excited and proud of himself. I love it when my children figure something out like this.
We did get a kick out of the fact that he started trying to put on several layers of clothes. My daughter was laughing pretty hard in the picture above because her little brother had put on 4 pairs of shorts and could hardly walk.
We have since convinced him that one outfit at a time is preferable. 🙂
Along these same lines, my children have all loved playing dress-up over the years. Playing dress-up is a great way to not only practice the skill of getting dressed, but to allow a child to use their imagination.
Does your child enjoy getting dressed? Mine have run the gamut on enjoying dressing themselves at this age.
