Celebrate your child’s birthday in the Waldorf and Montessori tradition with our Around The Year Playsilks!

  • Mini Around The Year Playsilks are 21" x 21", made from heavyweight, 100% pure mulberry silk. 

In Waldorf and Montessori homes and classrooms birthdays are a special occasion to honor and celebrate the child. Around The Year Playsilks are a beautiful option for parents and teachers choosing to celebrate birthdays in this lovely tradition.

Mini Around The Year Playsilks may be used as special birthday table decor. Light a candle and place it in the middle of the Mini Playsilk to add even more magic!

Here is a song to sing as your child slowly walks around the Playsilk as many times as they are old:

"The Earth goes around the Sun.
And now you're one.
The Earth goes around the Sun.
And now you're two.
(And so on, as many times as your child is turning)
It takes a whole year for the Earth to go around the Sun.

After birthdays are over, Around The Year Playsilks will be used time and time again for dress-up and open-ended play, encouraging little ones to recognize the turning of the seasons and cultivating their awareness of the Earth's natural rhythms. Families use Around The Year Playsilks to decorate nature tables and celebrate special moments in their child’s lives ‘round the year!

A beautiful birthday tradition

My daughter attends a Montessori school and we do Waldorf at home. This silk is a beautiful representation of “the Earth goes around the sun,” and we love adding it to our birthday tradition. We made the little felt Earth from Sarahs blog and it was a wonderful sensory pairing. I think these would make great gifts for any child.

Magnifique mais j'ai reçu la mauvaise taille (mini playsilk)

Qualité du tissus et dessins magnifiques. Je suis quand même déçue d'avoir reçu la mauvaise taille.

The BEST open ended toys!

My experience from ordering, receiving and using was beyond wonderful. The packaging is always beautifully done. The silks and wood are high quality and last for years! This company is the type of company you want to buy from.
