Sarah's Silks Review -- Timeless Toys for Imaginative Play

Sponsored Post: This post was sponsored by Sarah's Silks. 
My family received free products in exchange for this review. As always, all opinions are honest and my own. 

My girls and I LOVE Sarah's Silks. We've had her silk scarves and silk scapes
in our playroom since my oldest daughter was a toddler. Now she's a tween and both of my girls, 
and all of their friends STILL play with our silks every week. They are a classic and timeless imaginative play staple and you can't say that about a lot of things that have come and gone through our playroom over the years. These silk scarves and silk scapes have been used in our house for dress-up, party decor, room decor, fort building, small world play, slings, doll hammocks, halloween costumes, holiday decor, gift wrap, and more. 

When Sarah Lee herself, yes that Sarah...contacted me and asked if we'd like to host a giveaway for you, my readers, the girls and I were positively giddy. This is why I have the best job ever!
She sent us two of her newest silk scapes "Sea" (blues and greens, my oldest daughter's favorite colors) and "Blossom" (pinks and purples, my younger daughter's favorites!) 
We already had the "Rainbow" silk scape and the "Star" scape. 

She also included four of her beautiful wooden play clips -- wish we'd gotten them years ago, 
they are our new favorite! 
The clips make it SO easy for the girls to attach the silks to any surface -- 
tables, chairs, bed posts, etc. 
They're perfect for making forts, drapes, and playscape backgrounds. 
The wooden play clips are chunky enough that they don't damage the furniture or play silks 
and the kids can work them by themselves - bonus! 

As soon as the girls got home from school, "E" my tween claimed the blue and green "Sea" silk scape as her own. It measures a generous 9 feet x 3 feet and it is 100% silk. 
She draped it across her window in her room as a window treatment. I didn't get a better picture because the window was backlit with afternoon sun but you can see how perfectly the colors go with one of her homemade squid posters. 
"E" has also used the silk scape this week as a table cloth, dress-up toga, and a piano cover. 
I have a feeling it may go to college with her someday to be used as dorm room decor!

"C" my 7 year old, asked me to help her attach her "Blossom" (pink and purple) silk scape
to her bed posts with two of the wooden play clips to serve as a stuffed animal hammock 
for some of her special toys. As you can see in the photos, the colors are perfect for her! 

The play silks get a lot of use in our house as backgrounds and water for various
 imaginative play scenes and small world playscapes. 

Here's a little "world" I found in our playroom the day after the new silks arrived. 

I've even included a photo for you to take a peek "behind the scenes" to see how the girls use the wooden play clips to attach the silks as a background to our bookcase then set up their 
little lands and worlds on the floor in front of it. 

So do you love Sarah's Silks as much as we do? 
Do you need a silk scape for your own kids and play room? I think you do. 

They are PERFECT filler for Easter Baskets, Birthday gifts 
and a wonderful way to spoil grandchildren with a timeless 
and classic gift that they will not outgrow for many, MANY years!
