Episode 128: Katerina’s Costume/Dress Up Day

Katerina’s Costume:
Daniel and Katerina are at Miss Elaina’s Museum-Go-Round to make their costumes for Dress Up Day. While Daniel and Miss Elaina know exactly what they want to be, Katerina is having a harder time deciding on just the right costume. Eventually she comes up with a very clever idea!

Dress Up Day:
It’s Dress Up Day in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe and it’s time for the annual main street parade! The children visit all the stores, showing off their fancy costumes and receiving different stickers from their neighbors.

Learning Goals
The learning goal of this episode is to encourage pretend play and help children see that dressing up can make play even more fun.

Strategy song of this episode is: Dress up any way you choose. Find a way that’s right for you! 

Fred Rogers Timeless Wisdom
“When children pretend, they aren’t limited to the way things are in the real world. A stick can be a magic wand. A sock can be a puppet. Children’s play depends on what they’re thinking about or dealing with at that moment.  They might play to figure out what the world is like, or work through some of their feelings and concerns.  Or they may want to play just for fun. Through play, children discover the world and learn more about themselves.”  - Fred Rogers
