Dress Up in Mom's Clothes

Have your girl really be your mini-me for the day -- let her raid your closet and dress up like you!

Best for kids aged: Three and up

What you’ll need: Your own skirts, belts, dresses and accessories; clothing pins; a camera.

Directions: Give your kid a pile of clothes to choose from -- tank tops, tunics, etc. To hold the whole shebang together, use belts and clothing pins. Finally, have a fab photo-op and capture it on film!

Why they’ll love it: Wow, raiding mom’s closet without getting in trouble? You know she's totally in!
