Licketyspit Actor-Pedagogue Effie brings to life one of our Lickety Playcards - DRESSING UP GAMES! 🗝️🧣👒 🕶️ At first it may seem like a pile of old clothes and bits and bobs from around the house, but it's actually EVERYTHING you need to become infinite characters and get lost in different imaginary worlds. What's your favourite dressing up character? Send us a photo if you'd like to share it with the world! Dressing Up Games is one of the Lickety Playcards, a series of 32 colourfully-illustrated A5 cards containing a carefully-selected, tried and tested, new, adapted and traditional collection of games, rhymes, songs and imaginary play activities. Receive a free pack when you join Big Porridge & Play 2021!  Over to You! Maybe you'd like to send us your favourite dressing up character? If so we'd love to see it and share it with everyone else in the Licketyspit Children & Families Network!   Get inspired with other CFN family creations here and here.
