Visit any Waldorf kindergarten classroom and you will undoubtedly see a basket of brightly colored play silks among the toys. Adults who are unfamiliar may wonder what they are for, but children know just what to do!
During daily free play in my class, the play silks became capes, fairy skirts, veils, belts for a pirate or knight, dog leashes, baby blankets, and so much more. If you were to provide just one "Waldorf toy" for a child, a basket of play silks would be my highest recommendation.
“I am a huge fan of Bella Luna Toys! I was looking for play silks for my girls for Christmas. Sarah answered all my questions about what she thought would work best for the girls and her vast experience was invaluable. We ended up with play silks, gorgeous watercolors, paint brushes, watercolor paper and painting boards. She even walked me through the Waldorf painting technique. Every single item purchased has been an outstanding hit in our home.
All of our pennies are carefully spent with the hope of receiving the greatest joy from the fewest "things." I can gladly say that we have never been more delighted with a purchase, and it was all thanks to Sarah's time spent mulling over ideas with me during the hectic holiday season.
Needless to say, we are huge fans! If it's on her website, you can rest assured it with be worth the investment and yield returns in the smiling, giggling faces and hours of creative play that delights us all.”
