1. Use a shelf with hooks. If you have an extra shelf with hooks lying around, put it up in the kids' room.
2. Display dress-up clothes on pegs. If your child's room, play area or an empty hallway has the space, consider hanging favorite costumes on simple pegs at little ones' eye level.
3. Store costumes on a coat rack. To limit how many costume changes occur during the day, place dress-up clothes out of reach.
4. Create a display area. If your child's closet has some spare room, why not create a boutique store display area? This will not only house the dress- up mess, but will inspire creative play too.
5. Use inspiring materials. Repurposing unusual materials, such as this branch, to display dress-ups will add a touch of pizzazz to the space. Also, notice the mirror placed low enough for children to admire their superhero or princess appearance.
6. Make use of what you have. If your clothes drying rack isn't getting much use in the laundry room, try moving it to your child's space to store costumes.
7. Out of sight, out of mind. Sometimes it's nice to be able to stash things away and distract children into other activities. Storing dress-up clothes in a trunk like this one will keep them safe and neat while your children have fun elsewhere.
8. Hang a clothing rack. If you'd like to display costumes in a room without a closet, installing a simple clothing rack is the solution for you.
