We recently published an article on how our kids enjoy pretending they are us. Surely you’ve caught your daughter with your lipstick or your son trying to wear his daddy´s tie or walking around the house with your heels on. “Playing dress up is one of kids´ favourite pastimes because it responds to their need to search for their own identity and with how they are influenced by different genders. This type of role play is copied from watching you get dressed up or looking at how dad shaves or how anyone in their close environment engages in these daily rituals.” Today, we´d like to show you how to teach them to imitate us at the Spa because health and wellness are also important for the little ones.
