Play Silks are really popular right now, especially with preschool age children. They love them, there’s really a lot of imaginary play potential there. I haven’t had a chance to either make and dye some colorful silk material for play or buy some, so I decided to make Emma something to kind of hold us over until then.
Remember when I was making tutus? Well, I had a lot of tulle left over, so I decided to make Emma a tulle wand. I’m not really sure what to call it, but tulle wand sounds better than tulle on a stick. ;-)
Emma enjoyed running around our yard with it, making the tulle fly in the wind.
I didn’t purposely do it, but I think this one looks kind of patriotic. Can’t you just see a bunch of children running through the yard with their own tulle wands? So much fun!
These were easy to make. I just tied long strips of tulle onto a stick we found.
Oh, and did you notice Emma’s bag around her neck? That was handmade by a very good friend. Emma was using it to keep treasures in.
And she let me see what she had collected…
Ah, I love nature. :)
