Dressing up is Child’s play (poem)

Children having some secret fun

Dressing up is child’s play

Quick! Mummy’s gone out to the garden, and Daddy’s in the shed,
Let’s go and see what it is they’ve hidden under their bed.
I heard Daddy say it’s a donation for the show next week,
But I’m sure it will be alright, if we go and take a peek.

I can see two large bags, you take the red and I’ll take the blue,
Wow! There’s lots of clothes and stuff in here that we can look through.
I’ve found some funny shaped slippers, each look like a fluffy pig,
Look! They fit over my shoes, and make my feet look so big!

You look funny wearing that shirt, it’s hiding your hands and knees,
And with that woolly hat on your head, your ears would never freeze.
This raincoat is huge! Both of us could fit in it together,
We could use it as a tent and stay outside in rainy weather.

I can see an orange scarf, deep down at the bottom in there,
That would look really good around the neck of our teddy bear.
Oh dear! Everything’s scattered on the bed and on the floor,
And now Mummy and Daddy have appeared, laughing by the door.
