Quincy and I have been talking a lot about what it means to be a princess, and what kind of person a princess is. After we watched Sleeping Beauty Blu-Ray that was just released last week, I decided to take Quincy shopping at Walmart to put together a “How to be a Princess” kit inspired by the film and princess costumes.

Between the toy department and it almost being Halloween, Quincy and I made out like the mice in Cinderella! So many beautiful dresses! Bippity Boppity Boo!

Before we went to the store, we talked about princesses sharing, and that Quincy would get to pick out some things to share in her developmental preschool class as well as a few things for her. I was so proud of her for not fighting with me about what we found. There were no battles. Because a princess shares with her friends.

A princess is kind. Quincy doesn’t seem to notice if others around her are differently abled than her. She just sees them as who they are. A friend. I love this trait about her. She’s just a loving and caring little girl.

I’m so proud of Quincy, this morning, when we were getting ready for school, she says to me “Today is the day I share my princess dresses with my friends.”

I sent her off to school and then brought the “Princess Kit” during their free choice play.

To say they were excited might be an understatement. The morning class is pretty small, but Quincy’s teacher promised me that they were going to dress up in princess costumes that afternoon too!

So what goes in a “How to be a Princess” Kit? I’ve made you a checklist! Our kit included 3 dresses, 3 pairs of shoes plus jewelry, stickers and of course, a copy of Sleeping Beauty! Plus there is room in the princess costumes kit for more dresses and accessories. I chose a bin that would be easy for children of any ability to open, since some of Quincy’s classmates have trouble with their motor skills.

We had a wonderful time learning how to be a princess. Its much more than dressing up. It’s being a good friend. It’s being kind. It’s sharing. It’s seeing the beauty in others.

How will you teach your child to be a princess?

  1. What wonderful way to incorporate what being a Princess is about in a positive way. Sharing, caring and being a good friend. Every little girl likes to play dress up, and what better way that being a Happy Princess!

  2. Very sweet of Quincy to share with her school. She is certainly a lovely princess!

  3. What a great idea! My daughter loves to dress up all the time as a princess and what an awesome way to share that with her class. I love the idea of creating a kit. They would make a great gift too!

  4. You’re so super sweet to do that for Quincy’s class! I love all the thought that went into it right down to what type of bin you bought. I’m just going to go ahead and say it, you’re the princess here. You really are. That was a seriously royal thing to do. I hope one day Quincy realizes how awesome her mom is. #client

  5. Aw, how fun for Q and her friends! She is such a precious princess herself! I loved that even the little boy in the class got involved!

  6. Your post is so cute. I sometimes wish my daughter liked dressing up like a princess, but she doesn’t. It doesn’t stop me from trying and filling her closet with cute princess dresses. Q is adorable in her dress! I like that you put everything in a little plastic bin for her to use when she wants.

  7. How precious is she? So sweet of her to share her princess set up with her friends and classmates. She’s definitely a little princess, already showing such generosity and kindness.
