We did have to add a belt to hold his sword after a bit.
|My little hero|
After playing for a bit I realized the block sword was not the best. It kept falling apart. After Ben went to bed I found some little pieces of wood and fashioned a better sword that wouldn’t fall apart. The next morning we went right back to being knights!
|Is my kid the only one who insists on wearing winter jammies in summer?|
The next evening Ben decided we needed to be pirates. The kid is challenging my costume skills! For this one we needed hats, vests, and swords. Fortunately for me Ben went with his knight hat as a pirate hat. I was able to get us vests and we already had our swords. (Poor Sammy was completely freaked out by my hat. I don’t think she is made for the pirate life.)
It was getting on bed time, so I didn’t have a chance to get us many accessories. We were able to use our imaginations though.
|Pretend eye patches!|
|Pretend hooks are way safer than the real thing|
I am just adoring this new imaginative play phase! Dress up is so much fun. And at this young age Ben is very forgiving with what I am able to come up with. I am going to have to step up my game a bit. (Hello, pinterest. Glad I can waste more time on you.:P ) I can’t wait to see what he wants to be next!!
