Play with Fashion at Polyvore
That's why I want to tell you about Polyvore. If you know someone who really has an eye for clothes and accessories, she or he'll love Polyvore. Kids can ask for and give style advice, shop, read articles and check out what other Polyvore people are creating, or create their own fashion displays.
a create app where I played and produced the collages you see here. The website makes images and backgrounds available, and you can simply drag the ones you want to your canvas. Images are resizable, redraggable, can be flipped and cloned. There's a lot of variety, with music, colours, text, backgrounds and other items available. Most of it is aimed at teens but primary kids could play here with supervision. The fact kids can add text makes this a fun literacy activity.
If you register, you can publish what you make to the site. There's a newsletter too, where your kids can read about the look that celebrities like Emma Watson have, or how polka dots will add "caprice to your wardrobe" (Book Chook mental note - would dotty clothes turn me into a fashionista?)
