Playsilks are so wonderfully open ended for use in play, that inspires children to use their imaginations and creativity in play.
Play silks can be used in any number of endless creative ways in play - with babies they are a stimulating tactile sensory experience and fun for playing peek-a-boo, for toddlers and older children they can be used as capes, skirts and head scarves to dress up, to make dens, as a blanket to wrap dolly or a picnic blanket for dolly tea parties, as play scapes in small world play combined with peg dolls, wooden animals and small toys.
They look gorgeous blowing in the wind when tied to a stick and used as a flag and are wonderful for throwing up and catching as little ones develop their hand eye co-ordination and learn to catch, the way they move much slower than a ball as they float down gives a child more time to react creating a great sense of achievement as they are able to catch the scarf. They are also a staple for season/nature tables.
