SORT & MATCH: Have the kids sort the pieces into groups: tops, pants, skirts, pet sweaters, etc. Ask them to find matching patterns on different pieces, then use those pieces to dress the dolls and pets in coordinating outfits!
MIXED UP OUTFITS: Set a time for 30 seconds and challenge kids to come up with a silly outfit for one of the figures before time runs out. Maybe the cat is wearing sunglasses and a skirt, or a doll dresses in just one shoe and a winter hat. Have kids tell you what makes the outfits silly.
FETCH: The puppy dog loves to play fetch! Place all the pieces in the storage tray and ask the kids to use the dog on a stand to "retrieve" a specific piece, such as the hat with the peace sign or a pink shoe. When they find the piece, have them place it on the dog. How many different pieces can they fetch and stick to the dog without any falling off?
STORY TIME: Have kids give each doll and pet a name. Have them dress all four of the figures and then tell a story about where they are going and what adventures they have along the way.
