I love play silks so much! They really are the quintessential open ended toy. I love them so much that I replaced my dress up clothes in my preschool class with play silks. Instead of being limited to a princess dress or superhero suit, play silks can be draped anyway on a child to be anything. I love how my kids use the blue ones for water, the red for lava, the green for grass the brown for mud. Miss independent uses them a lot to make forts or as baby blankets.
Here's Miss Independent with her pink play silk. She was playing with this one in front of a large fan.
