Role play with dressing up and make-up

The older children get, the more elaborate and imaginative their role-play ideas become. However, boredom can also increase shortly before starting school, so it helps to offer children additional activities, such as dressing up and make-up. Role-play encourages your child in many areas and helps them develop skills and abilities that they will need for life.

While it usually requires nothing more than a few scarves, ribbons and perhaps a piece or two from the family wardrobe, every now and then it is stimulating for play and imagination if it can be a real costume to dress up in or if the children are made up or perhaps even allowed to make themselves up.

5 learning areas for your child when dressing up and putting on make-up

  1. The children can slip into other roles, try out new things in the fantasy world and thus experience self-efficacy, which can promote self-confidence and helps to discover one's own identity.

  2. Social skills such as empathy, communication and dealing with rules and conflicts are practised.

  3. Experiences can be acted out and processed.

  4. Creativity is encouraged.

  5. Motor skills, gestures and facial expressions are tried out and refined.

How can parents and educators support the children?

Children do not play in a vacuum, nor do they "just do it by themselves". The adults around them, the room design and the atmosphere that is created are very decisive and can be supportive or disruptive.

What can we do as adults to help children engage in imaginative, creative play:

  • give the children space and time

  • offer a not too large but stimulating range of play materials

  • pay attention to the (also non-verbal) feedback that we give.

  • for carnival, we should follow the children's wishes regarding costumes and make-up.

  • reflect our own ideas

Costumes and make-up in Waldorfshop

In addition to play cloths, we also offer selected costumes for role play and for carnival or fancy dress.

Costumes are often made from cheap materials under questionable conditions. We value materials and production processes that do not harm the environment, the people making them or our children.

Even the production of make-up often takes place under inhumane and animal-unworthy conditions. We focus on make-up with natural ingredients whose production does not harm animals, humans or the environment. All in the spirit of: Only the best for your children's skin!


Under our own brand waldorfkind we created our wonderful dwarf costume in cooperation with BG-Stätten in Kassel. Coat and cap are made of 100% organic virgin whale. This costume is especially suitable for carnival in the kindergarten during the cold season.

Our costume for hunters and robbers is also made of 100% wool, lovingly handmade in Germany and is Ökotex certified.

In our online shop we also offer costumes for dressing up as Vikings, princesses, mythical creatures, knights and knights templar as well as damsels.


The make-up for children by Livos contains 12 colours on the basis of vegetable oils. They are very well tolerated by the skin and have a high covering power. With them, face, lips and eyes can be made up perfectly.

From the company Birkenspanner we carry organic glitter for skin and hair in beautiful colours. It is harmless for the skin and the environment, 'OK-Water' TüV certified for rivers and lakes as well as 100% plastic-free and biodegradable.

From the company Namaki Cosmetics we carry

  • a pretty set with mirror, application and 7 softly shimmering eye shadows, which are enriched with rice powder and certified organic.

  • Make-up pencils "Magical Worlds" with ingredients of 100% natural origin and certified organic.

  • Water-based nail polish - free from parabens, formaldehyde, phthalates, toluene, camphor or nanoparticles and suitable for ages 5 and up.
