Kimono for children are shaped and styled much like those for adults, but are almost always in bright patterns and prints. Children typically wear fancy kimono for special festivals and visits to local shrines on holidays.
For example, "7-5-3 Day" is on November 15 each year. Boys who are 3 or 5 and girls who are 3 or 7 dress up in kimonos to go the temples to pray.
There is also a special day for all girls and all boys to go the temple. March 3 is Girls' day and May 5 is Boys' day.
