Dress Up Games and Spring Clean Out

Now that the spring months are upon us, it’s an excellent time to take advantage of the warm months and the inspired feelings of spring cleaning to purge all of the unnecessary items from your closet and drawers. Use a deep spring cleaning as the perfect excuse for some fun dress up games. Start with a giant heap of clothing in the center of your room. Pull everything you own out of drawers, out of the closet and out from under the bed. Include accessories like shoes and belts in this pile.

Then start sorting through the pile. Try on everything there to see what you like, what you only wish you like and what you never really liked. If you bought something and never wore it, you might give it another chance, but most likely it just needs to be placed into the thrift store or donation box. The same is true for shoes you bought, but never found a chance to wear.

Anything that doesn’t fit or is trashed or stained gets thrown out. You might discover some items you’ve forgotten about, and you can add those to your keep pile, but at the end of the day you should have a nice stack of donations and only clothing left that you actually love to wear.

Dress Up Games and Cameras

While dress up games are always fun and exciting, there is even more fun to be had if you’re playing along with your best friend. Grab a friend and bring along your phone or another camera so that you can record the awesome outfits you put together. Start in a big store that has lots to see and do. Of course, you’ll want to find a store that has plenty of clothing that you can all enjoy, so consider a department store where there is lots of variety.

Once you’re in the store grab your friend and start grabbing clothing items. The goal is to put together some great outfits. You can even have a contest if you’d like to see who can put what sort of clothing looks together the fastest. If you have a couple of friends together, you can have judging and plenty of different rounds as well. The two rules to the dress up games, however, are to put your clothing back when you’re done trying things on and to absolutely be sure to put the camera to use and get lots of pictures.
