Playsilks Rock!!

Wednesday, September 3, 2008

In a world full of noisy electronic gadgets and trinkets that are bombarding our little ones, it's refreshing to find simple, wholesome toys that can truly inspire their creativity and imagination! I have recently discovered the playsilk! Just a simple piece of silk cloth dyed in bright colors! After reading about their possibilities I knew that I wanted my little ones to have know me, I made them myself! Well, actually I bought the silk scarves and dyed them at home with a little help from the kids! Hayden and Halle assisted me in the dying process and it was a fun experiment but potentially very messy! However, no clothes were harmed during the making of these playsilks!

You might be asking "What can you do with a playsilk?". Well here are just a few ideas:

*be a ghost
*play dress-up (wrap and tie yourself up in so many ways)
*use as a picnic blanket for pretend lunches
*use as a table cloth for tea parties
*wear as a cape and be a super hero
*wear as a veil and be a princess
*wrap up your baby dolls or stuffed animals
*sensory experience- just touch and feel the silk or run around with it flying behind you
*magic tricks
*build a fort using multiple playsilks
*use as a lovey or security blankie
*twirl them around you
*throw them up in the air and watch them dance and flutter their way to the floor
*learn to juggle (especially great with smaller silks)
*the possibilities are as endless as your child's imagination!!

If you are interested in having some playsilks made for your little one just let me know! They truly are a lot of fun for both children and adults! And yes, I did run around the house with a cape tied around my neck (sorry, no pic available)!!


  1. I love your playsilks! They are so pretty. And your babies are adorable!


  2. These is so beautiful....I can remember when you were a little girl and you played with ribbons that twirl from a stick and glitter on every piece of clothing you had. If it sparkled you wanted to wear it. I have always said you would have wore a wedding dress to school everyday if you could. I guess these play silks are bringing out the kid in you! Mom
