2. Then teach a few lines related to the character that your child is supposed to enact, for the fancy dress competition. The lines must provide accurate information about the character  being portrayed and must begin with a proper introduction.

3. Practice patience and do not force the child to learn the lines and how to enact, all at once. Teach the child to begin with a smile.
