Role Playing Costumes for Kids

Updated on September 11, 2014

Role Play Sets Let Kids Pretend

Kids love to pretend to be doctors, fire fighters, and more. Role playing costumes for kids let them explore and learn while having fun.

Kids costumes aren't just for Halloween, though these role play sets make great costumes. When kids dress up, kids become policemen and construction workers. They can pretend to be fishing and camping in the back yard.

Fishing and Camping Role Playing Costumes

Fishing Pole, Tackle Box, Cook Stove

If your child loves to go camping and fishing, extend the fun times with a play set that lets them keep the good times rolling.

Little kids can pretend to fish in the backyard with a bucket or a kiddie pool. Or on a cold winter day, let your child fish into an empty bucket to practice for when the weather's good enough to go fishing for real.

A child's fishing costume is shown above.

Police and Fire Fighter Costumes

Little boys especially, and some little girls, want to be police officers and fire fighters.

A great way to educate your child about these important jobs is to let them dress up as their role models.

Take a field trip to the police station or fire station for even more educational fun.

Doctors and Nurses Role Playing Costumes

Nurse and Doctor Role Play Sets - Be Sure to Keep Plenty of Band-Aids on Hand!

Nurse and Doctor Costumes for Realistic Imaginary Play

To make doctors and nurses more approachable and likeable, let your child pretend to be one!

With their own little lab coat and doctor bag, a child may love to help heal "boo boos" and realize doctors and nurses are our friends.

A box of bandages that they can apply to you or their dolls is another great way to make them feel like helpers and healers.

Construction Worker Role Play Sets

Dress Up Like a Construction Worker

Let your kids play dress up when you have to fix up the house. They can emulate you while you do real work with their own set of tools!

Give them a piece of wood to hammer (nails not included, unless you supervise, of course) and they'll feel like they're helping out.

Chef Role Playing Costumes

Role Playing Like the Stars on Food Network

If your child loves to watch cooking shows, a chef or waitress costume might be right up their alley.

Dress up is plain fun for kids especially when they can be doing something they see mom and dad doing each day.

There are lots of costumes to choose from. The one shown here is a baker and who doesn't love cupcakes!?
