Learning about clothes is always fun for the little ones! Putting on clothes is one of the activities that start very early in life, first with the help of parents, but soon enough children become more independent and they want a more active role. It is during this time when young children start to get more involved in their daily dressing routine, that they begin to develop some important motor skills while buttoning their shirts, tying their shoes, or balancing themselves to put on their pants.
Additionally, their vocabularies grow and their awareness of time and space can improve as they learn about the different types of clothes and apparel there is, and also the uses these garments have for specific situations or weather types.
Learning the names of different clothes during childhood is much more than just introducing children to new vocabulary. As children pick out their own clothes, they can experience a feeling of achievement and even begin to explore their own identities through means of self-expression by choosing outfits that fit their personalities.
Here you will find the vocabulary to teach your children about the different names of clothes, and also several fun games and activities to incorporate in the lesson!
