Most schools or educational institutions would have a school calendar given to the parents so they can be updated on school activities. This makes it easier for parents to plan and prepare for whatever extra needs that the child may have in relation to these activities. School programs that require kids to dress up in costumes can be a source of stress if you have limited time to shop. There are online shops like MrCostumes that can make costume shopping more convenient but it still doesn’t hurt to be prepared and have your shopping options ready.
My son will like this Transformers costume for his 7th birthday.
Two of the usual school events that require students to dress up in costumes are Linggo ng Wika and Halloween. As early as July, parents can start hunting for a Filipiniana costume for their children to avoid the stress of last minute shopping. This way they would already know where to buy once they get the official notice from the teacher. Those who would rather wait for the notice before scouting around for a costume can put Divisoria, Quiapo, or the dry goods section of your local wet market at the top of their list of costume hunting spots. These places offer more variety in both design and sizes at a very affordable price. Those who want to shop in comfort can check out the filipiniana section of department stores inside malls.
Not all schools would require their students to come in Halloween costumes for this holiday. But with Halloween parties becoming more popular every year it is likely that your child will also need one. Your most convenient option for Halloween Costume is the toy section of department stores. You can also try your hand on DIY costumes or just have it tailored by your local seamstress. Knowing what to prepare for and where to find costumes for their child to wear on school events makes it a lot easier for parents to manage their time and finances.
