Directions for creating your own playsilks can be found on Sara's Toy Box and The Artful Parent.
Yes, this project calls for A LOT of Koolaid! It smelled so good but Mom wouldn't let me even have a sip. Each scarf took 3 - 4 packets.
This project can be done in the microwave but we heeded Molly's advice about the wretched smell of cooking plastic wrap in the microwave and opted for the stove top. It worked perfectly! The yellow Koolaid was the only one that came out a little light so we had to add several extra packets to get a darker effect.
We really made a mess of the kitchen (we hope the stains came out of the countertop Amy!) but the final product was all worth it. Mom kept saying how amazing it was that Koolaid could be so color fast...wonder what it could be doing to our insides?
We were so proud of our playsilks that Mom and I decided to have a tea party with them the next afternoon (thanks for the idea Stella Dot). I decided to call Stella Dot (on the phone she left here) to see if she could come over for the party but she was under the weather. Maybe Mom will let me invite a bunch of friends over when the weather is nicer and we can have a playsik tea party outside!
I recently got my very own Mei Tai so I can carry around my babies in my very on "bak-pak". It was made just for me by Amy May!
