Capes! We would use them as capes, puppet show curtains, tie them to sticks for wands, and as lava/grass play! Thank you!

Hanging with a lamp behind it to make a shadow puppet show or tied between two chairs as a tight rope/slack line for dolls and stuffed animals to walk/bounce across. The possibilities are endless <3

Tie a mini on the end of a stick to be a magic wand! One could also make a lovely cozy nest for baby stuffed animals. The silks could be used for scavenger hunts or as a curtain and backdrop for puppet theater ❤💛💚💙💜

As magicians scarves hidden up sleeves – abracadabra!!! My two year old would most likely use them to tuck her dollies in – she does this with my craft fabric all the time. It’s lovely to watch imaginative play. She was pretending a napkin was a sewing machine at dinner this evening. Lovely give away.

Hang them up and use them as a background to take pictures— first day of school pictures, special occasion pictures, showing off a costume, whatever.

And for a small baby, you can spread them on the floor, or even arrange a scene!

We’ve used the silks in so many ways!! But I think using it as a cape is still the favorite and often you’ll find favorite toys and dolls all bundled up in a silk.

It would be fun to take to the beach, make a amazing fort with all the washed up drift wood, and use the beautiful silk to make the roof! For sure, fellow beachers will stop and admire!

My almost-1-year-old loves to put them into cups and pull them back out. I pretend he’s “making soup” when he does it with his play pots and pans, but I think he mostly enjoys feeling the texture and learning about spacial relationships and the magic of object permanence.

Use as props for a finger play (ground, mountain, etc.)

I hang them on the windows to create soft lighting.

Creating a baby doll hammock.

Many of the other ways we use them are listed above in the original post. At the day care I work at the kids all love to use them as baby carriers. We take small wooden teething rings and attach the silk to turn them into little ring slings! It’s so amazing to watch them create and play out so many things with them!

We use them for dancing, juggling, and play clothes. they also love to “cook” with them, doll blankets, and “scarf parties,” which mostly entails rolling around in them and throwing them in the air. We’re rearranging their room in a couple of weeks, and I intend to put a couple of retractable clothes lines up in their room, so they can have room forts which they play upstairs.

We use ours to have dance parties with. We also use them to create tablescapes. We often use blue and green to create an ocean tablescape. My son loves playing with them, especially to wrap his dolls in. Thank you so much for making such beautiful toys.

Pile them up in a basket and burrow into them like a little animal in a nest. Create a rainbow path out of them around the house. Stitch them together with embroidery thread. Throw a carnival show for the grandparents and neighbors using them as costumes and props. Pretend they are plants in a garden and “harvest” them in a basket :)

We currently do not have any but have been wanting to add them to our play for a while now. I probably can’t imagine what my kids would do with them as they have such great imaginations but some things I can see as they already love is forts and carriers. Flags and dress up. The list can probably go on and on. We would love to be considered and be able to add some of your silks to their play.

We use our silks to make bindles, which are when you tie the cloth at the end of a long stick to make a carrying device. We use it to carry our lunch or snacks for an adventure. Once your lunch or snacks are in the sack you put the stick over your shoulder. So we put our snacks in our bindles and go exploring!

We don’t have any actual play silks yet, but would very much love some! Our girls use a wonderful dark green sari that I use for our summer nature table as dress up, wings, picnic blanket, peek a boo with the littlest, wrap for baby dolls… so many options 😊

We have used our silks in a thousand ways, and the look of them nested on the floor or curled and tucked away in their basket is so lovely. My favorite use for them is draping them in layers over a small stump on our nature table to create the look of a hill, field, and stream. My son loves to wear them as capes and dresses.

We use ours as a soft blindfold for party games, and even when our daughter had an eye injury that needed to be kept covered.I

I’ve also tied them into bunny or baby shapes so my kids could have a “friend” when we’re on the go, or to help them feel brave, like at doctor’s appointments.

I was surprised at how many of this list we already use our play silks for, and found some great new ideas as well!!! Fun!

My nine year old daughter loves to make elaborate dresses from the silks.. my two year old son loves using the silks to make tails.. he crawls around the house meowing :) we used silks in our Easter baskets this year instead of grass. My four year old and nine year old daughters make doll hammocks and baby slings, dresses, skirts, capes, mermaid tops.. their play is endless!

Our child has been using play silks and clips as an all purpose, go-to, portable toy and decoration for these past three years of on-the-move, out-of-the-luggage, temporary housing-style living (moved overseas). From cosy tent/blanket on the plane, to draping the rainbow silk across the ceiling above the bed to make everywhere “home”, to making doll hammocks play clipped or tied between chairs, to loving dolly swaddling projects (including matching by size and swaddling a doll for each size of upside-down Grimm wooden rainbow piece — so she can then rock them all to sleep), to making her own puppet show, or wooden figures show on top of different silks, or (now she’s older), to cover and reveal a puppet scenario on the floor to us, or to set up to set up with a friend on the ledge of a play stand which they have play clipped with playsilk curtains to reveal the show or conceal the puppeteers. Recently, they have put on an evening show where the play silks are a shadow screen for fingers or wooden figures dancing behind it while one child holds and directs the flashlight. Once they presented us with handmade tickets for their show: wrapped and delivered in play silks. Another time she used a silk to make herself “invisible” to the audience when the musical instruments she was playing wouldn’t fit with them behind the play stand while her friend worked the puppets. The play silkss have been surprisingly warm and practical as blankets for our child when napping or when playing at sleep over on a bed or inside a sofa den. Like so many here, we pull them out of the basket to decorate the birthday and nature table, and to wrap gifts for the birthday table. She goes through phases of wrapping different toys she has in order to “make it secret” and then transform it again into something new by revealing it “ta da”. Or wanting to use up all of the silks in a project of wrapping up all of her toys and then giving them to us (or to her friend) and we to her to “open” as a play gift. Everything is made anew by wrapping it in a playsilk. Practicing tying a bow and knots is now fun with a playsilk. Their newest discovery is that the play clips expand far (with rubber band adjustment) to attach play silks and play cloths to the round plastic tubing of a Quadro play climbing structure build kit (indoor with a slide right now). She and her friend asked us to tie play silks capes of particular colors (as fairy/fireman capes and wings) whereupon they ran up the slide to place the two blue silks over the red and orange silks they’d clipped to the upper story — the blue silks put out the fire — also when balled up and thrown at the red and orange silks. Postal delivery is another repeated game, where they have made both levels into a den by hanging play silks all around by making the play clips very wide (and rubber bands loose). They decided later on to attach a toddler caterpillar tunnel to the slide with play silks to cover each end (for the postal delivery) so had to make the rubber bands very tight again on the clips for it to work. Each friend in their respective silky den room busily cutting long strips of paper, drawing pictures with letters on them. This playtime was improvised indoor in winter when her friend had a long leg cast. Grownups would be summoned often to supply new materials (crayons, scissors, more silks, or blue tape, when they ran out of silks), for their post office play. They tied their “messages” with a “string” made from a rolled up play silk. They’d call out “post is here!” whereupon a “message” would come hurtling down the caterpillar tunnel on the slide and out the playsilk exit at the bottom and we would untie the silk for reuse at the “post office”. So many endless inventions every time from simple to elaborate, but our children always seem to pull the play silks and the play clips out of the baskets to create new play worlds for themselves.

We have been having playsilk baths nearly nightly – bubble baths, of course! Washing our hair with them is especially nice at bedtime. Also: they make awesome ropes for games of tug-of-war and to scrunch up into balls to practice catching (the floating aspect seems to help the littlest players catch it better). Lately silks have also been babies for me to hold, or stuffed into my daughter’s shirt awaiting delivery. I’ve found in a pinch they work great as belts, and that’s led to us using them as reins/harnesses – drape one around the ’horse’s’ belly (often me) and then the rider/driver holds the two ends and goes on a ride behind the horse.

My preschool uses silks everyday in many ways, leashes, capes, hair, fire, baby swings and slings, and fort building are favorites. We use them for birthday celebrations also. A big rainbow silk behind the birthday child and individual silks covering small pillows to make a rainbow circle for the other children to sit. They bring beauty and ceremony to it. We also love playing under the rainbow games with the big rainbow.

They’re great pretend campfire flames, baby doll carriers, river to jump over, or lava, depending on the day, sunny day car window shades, bridal veils, present wrappers, tie around a balloon or tennis ball comet catcher. Play silks are exactly as useful as my kids’ imaginations are wild and free.

We don’t have any play silks right now, and most of the suggestions listed already are so great! My toddler loves to play in boxes, so draping one over the opening so he can have his own little hide out would be fun! My 9 year old would likely run around the yard with some floating in the wind. Even though he’s getting to an age where imagination is waning, I still see bits of magic and creativity in his eyes when I encourage him to let go.

I use these silk scarves endlessly in my yoga and sensory play toddler classes. A favorite was swimming in the scarves and then pretending to wash our bodies with them and then playing car wash with them tied to a rope and the toddlers running through the scarves hanging below – choosing the colour to run through and exploring the texture. The school ready group practiced their pen grip by pegging the scarves onto a washing line too.

My kids love to wrap up in them and nap. Wrap them around their bodies and do ballet. Wrap gifts up and play birthday party. They are capes and lay them our for pretend or real picnics. Our silks are them most played with items . They tie them up on sticks and fill them up with treasure. They are pretend laundry or doll swaddles or carriers . Lava around block towers .

We call them silkies and they are used most of all in play, from dressing up to puppet shows. Most creatively, my children have used them to make thrones by layering them over chairs set on top of small tables – they come up with beautiful sets and scenery for their play time this way. At kindergarten, we’ve used them as simple knot doll puppets, and as sweet porridge bubbling out of the pot during story time.

We most recently used a pastel rainbow silk as a photo backdrop at a birthday party to hide the old fire place. My daughter loves wrapping it around to be a mermaid tail, or on her head twisted down like Rapunzel’s hair.

My daughter and I practice hula dancing in our beautiful flowy play silk skirts and I teach her about the meaning of Aloha ;)

My son loves the testure of the silks, he can focus for a long time just feeling them.

We’ve used ours as a cape, a turban, a baby blanket, a “pond” for our wooden swan…I could go on and on! Just today, one of our silkscapes was used as the “outfield fence” for a baseball game, and later it served as the roof of our “airplane” bound for Europe. I can’t say enough just how much our family has loved our playsilks.

Cover your pet with a silk as a blanket or make a silk nest so your pet is comfy.

My girls love to twist the silks into “roses”. Silks are the favorite toys at our house!

We use ours for dressup, and to place all over the Pikler triangle to make a fort/little house. :)
