IDEA #2: DIY Dress-Up Kit!

This idea is so cute, I so badly want to make myself one!

Method:

Go to the Dollar Tree/Dollar Store and go to their toy/kid section! Give yourself about a $6 budget (at Dollar Tree, this means you can get 6 things, just be aware of the tax!) Dollar Tree has dress up supplies like masquerade masks sometimes, beaded necklaces, fairy wings, tiaras, prop weapons, etc! All stuff perfect for an age regressor’s dress up kit! Pick 6 things you think they would like to use for dress up games. Get a box (Dollar tree has plain white cardboard boxes!) and some decorations for the box. Decorate the box and fill it with the dress up supplies, and there you go, you’ve made a dress-up kit for age regression!

COST:

Dress up items: $6
Box: $1
Décor: $2

TOTAL: $9


IDEA #3: Adopt-a-Stuffie!

When I first got my beloved stuffie, Yuki :)


This is another completely adorable idea, that I have done with a loved one! (Minus the adoption certificate)

(Brian got me the stuffie ^-^)

Method:

Step One: Print out an “adoption” certificate like this one:



Step Two: Visit a thrift store like Goodwill with the age regressor. Let them pick a stuffie of their choice to “adopt!”

Step Three: Buy the stuffie for them! Then visit your local Dollar Tree…

Step Four: Have the age regressor pick out some accessories for their new fluffy friend! You can find pet collars at Dollar Tree (perfect for a new pet stuffie!), you can find beaded necklaces, etc. The budget for this part is up to you. I’d probably set it at like $5. Then, buy the accessories!

Step Five: Lastly, bring the stuffie home and have the age regressor fill out the adoption certificate! Congrats on the new stuffie friend 😊

COST:

Stuffie: $1
Accessories: Up to you, for the purpose of this I’ll say $5.
Possibly buying stickers to put on the adoption certificate 😊: $1

TOTAL: $7


IDEA #4: Sweets Basket!

This idea is kind of traditional for Valentine’s but it’s also customizable for your Age Regressor friend/loved one!

Method:

Yep, you guessed it, we are venturing to Dollar Tree again! Get a decorated gift box from Dollar Tree and then, it’s time to visit the beloved aisle of every age regressor…the candy aisle!
Pick out the candies you think they’ll like best! The budget on this is up to you, you could keep it under $10 or go completely all-out.
And that’s pretty much it! You could also hand-make a card to put in the box with all the candy.

COST:

Box: $1
Candy: $5-9

TOTAL: $6-10


IDEA #5: DIY Plushie!!!

Okay, this one takes a little bit of sewing knowledge.

Materials Needed:

-Felt in your desired plushie color
-Buttons in your desired plushie eye color
-Thread
-Sewing Needle
-Stuffing

Method:

Step One: Draw the shape of your plushie on the felt, and cut out two.

Step Two: Sew the button eyes and any facial features on one of the cutouts.

Step Three: Sew the cutouts together around the edges and leave a gap open.

Step Four: Stuff the plushie,  then sew up the gap.

Now you have a plushie!

I’ve made two plushies this way:



These would make really cute gifts!

COST:

Felt: $0.50 per piece at Walmart (So you’d need $1 worth of felt).
Buttons: $1 per pack at Walmart
Thread: $1 for a sewing kit including thread and sewing needle.
Sewing Needle: Included above.
Stuffing: $4 for Bag of stuffing at Walmart.

TOTAL: $7

  1. I love the DIY plushies!! ^_^ for those who prefer knitting to sewing, I made these really cute knit bunnies before https://www.studioknitsf.com/how-to-knit-a-bunny-from-a-square-for-easter/ I’m a novice at knitting but it was pretty easy. If you don't already own knitting needles it might total to over 10$ though.
