Halloween is a great time for everyone to explore different times and worlds. It is especially a great time for little girls to explore all the wonderful things they are learning in school about history. Most girls are fascinated with history, and with the lives of the girls who lived in those times. And Halloween offers every little girl the perfect opportunity to not only explore history, but to show off their American patriotism as well, with girl's historic & patriotic costumes.
There are so many great historical costumes for girls to choose from, that there is surely something for everyone, regardless of where her interests lie. For many little girls, learning about the pilgrims is the first history lesson in school, and is where the imagination takes hold. Dressing up as a pilgrim allows a girl to live history, and to have fun while doing it. Though most pilgrim costumes are, understandably, drab, they are also fairly historically accurate, and give girls a feeling of reality while stimulating their imaginations. The plain black dresses with white aprons and caps may not be the most colorful costumes, but they can be very fun.
The Colonial era of American history fascinates many young girls as they are learning about it in school and reading about it in books. For these little girls, a Colonial costume is perfect for Halloween, and can be more fun than pilgrim costumes. Though there is wide variation among Colonial costumes, they are always dresses, some in brighter colors, and sometimes accompanied by aprons or caps. Martha Washington costumes are great for those who want to imitate an actual historical figure, while Betsy Ross American flag costumes are a perfect way to show patriotism.
For girls who want to be a bit more noticeable, there are also more vivid girl's patriotic Halloween costumes. For those with an American spirit, there is a Statue of Liberty, and for little princesses, there are queen costumes complete with tiaras and scepters. For the little girl who wants to stand out, these historical costumes are the perfect way to do it.
