I don’t know what we’d do without ours. They have been the consistently most-used “toy” in our house over the past several years. Their uses are endless, they move so beautifully and we always have a basket of them handy. From the ocean floor to a forest , a child can use their imagine run wild. Below are ten uses that we have found for play silks.
- Tied on as a cape.
- Worn as butterfly wings.
- Blue used to represent water in small world play.
- Green forests for animals.
- A blanket for dolly.
- Wrap someone up like a burrito.
- A picnic blanket.
- Used as an island when the floor is lava!
- Props for plays
- A tent ot fort
- Flags in the wind
