My 4 1/2 year old ds has been way into dressing up and role playing/pretend play for about a year now, and I see no end to it...he gets so wrapped up into it, it's amazing. He now gets his little sister ( 20 months) into the act with him. He has a dress up trunk ( it's actually one of those under the bed containers for sweaters) and it has a dozen different hats, construction outfit, fireman gear, doctor's kit, chef's gear, his old pirate costume, cowboy gear, cowboy boots, black rubber boots, etc. and he can play with the stuff for hours. Sometimes I get into the act, sometimes not. I personally like when we can play doctor and I am the patient who is just so sick she has to lie on the couch and close her eyes!!!! lol... Most of the stuff was gifts and stuff I found around the house.
He also likes making garages and houses with his wooden blocks for his hotwheel cars, legos, and art stuff. GIve him some safety sissors, a stick of glue, and some paper and he'll be entertained for hours creating things!
