Our beautiful Play Scapes will inspire hours of imaginative play. They are large enough to become a magical flowing river, to build an enchanting hideaway when draped over a couple of chairs, or to simply wrap oneself up in.
While silk fabric may not be recognized by many adults as a plaything, play silks and Play Scapes are classic Waldorf toys—open ended, pleasing to the senses, and inviting imaginative play.
While I taught in a Waldorf kindergarten, I used a Rainbow Play Scape just like this one on each child's birthday. The silk was draped over the birthday table, set with candles and flowers, before the special birthday story was told. It represented the "rainbow bridge" in the story, over which the birthday child slid to make their journey from heaven to earth.
