The best gift I feel I can give my children is the freedom and opportunity to imagine! This is why I love playsilks! They are so versatile and fun, they are only limited by our imagination. They can be capes, cloaks, skirts, head wraps, belts, backdrops, plays capes, forts, tents, flaming rocket balls & so much more. My children play often with their blocks, gnomes, trucks & legos but not a day goes by that they don’t play with their playsilks.
Last year I made this playsilk and gnome clothes pin set for our cousins. The gnomes pin up the silks on a line to make them easily accessible for play.
To read about how I dyed the silks and where to buy them read here. For a tutorial on how to make your own gnome clothes pins read here. The gnomes could also be a fun project for your kids to make for their friends & family or for you to make one or two to clip to their Christmas stocking. Such possibilities!
If you don’t care to make them yourself many of our lovely Natural Kids Team members sell playsilks. Team shops like Birch Leaf Designs, Gypsy Forest, Mosey & The Enchanted Cupboard. & I sell the gnome clothes pins at my shop, MamaWestWind.
Do you have playsilks at home? What do your children create with them?
