101 Things to Do with a Playsilk!

101 Things to Do with a Playsilk!

Okay, maybe I can't think of 101 things off the top of my head, but I bet your child can! And lucky for us, Sarah's Silks has compiled an inspiring list of their own, that we'll share below.

Playsilks are one of the toys that we ALWAYS keep out, rather than rotating, as we do with other toys in our household. Hardly a day goes by that our kids aren't incorporating playsilks into their play in some way, from leashes for pet stuffed animals, to elaborate costumes, blankets for picnics, slings for babies, grassy meadows and roiling seas to serve as backdrops to elaborate dramas with their Ostheimer and Holztiger figures... Playsilks enrich their play every day!

Here are just a few more ideas from Sarah's Silks:
