"Children love to immerse themselves in a story as much as possible," explains Dr. Sheila Pattison, child psychologist. "Once they have read a story and love it, they like to reenact some of the parts, pretending they are one of the characters in the story. This is actually very important for their social and cognitive development, as it teaches children that there is a world outside of their own, and that other people in that world have feelings and thoughts too."
Costume Express provides costumes and party accessories for a huge range of different themes. Some of these themes include well-known characters from children's favorite stories. As they are also incredibly affordable, they allow parents to recreate their child's favorite world. This is a great way to follow two of the tips presented in the SageForLearning.ca article: it makes reading fun, and it offers a reward.
Throwing a good themed party, according to CostumeExpress.com, has to either be done right, or not be done at all. This is why they offer a huge range of items for each of the themes that people could look into. Whether these are stories, movies, cultural events, important anniversaries or any other theme, they are available.
