Celebrate your child’s birthday in the Waldorf and Montessori tradition with our Around The Year Playsilks!

In Waldorf and Montessori homes and classrooms birthdays are a special occasion to honor and celebrate the child. Around The Year Playsilks are a beautiful option for parents and teachers choosing to celebrate birthdays in this lovely tradition.

Mini Around The Year Playsilks may be used as special birthday table decor. Light a candle and place it in the middle of the Mini Playsilk to add even more magic!

Here is a song to sing as your child slowly walks around the Playsilk as many times as they are old:

"The Earth goes around the Sun.
And now you're one.
The Earth goes around the Sun.
And now you're two.
(And so on, as many times as your child is turning)
It takes a whole year for the Earth to go around the Sun."

After birthdays are over, Around The Year Playsilks will be used time and time again for dress-up and open-ended play, encouraging little ones to recognize the turning of the seasons and cultivating their awareness of the Earth's natural rhythms. Families use Around The Year Playsilks to decorate nature tables and celebrate special moments in their child’s lives ‘round the year!

I loved it so much I bought another one for my best friends daughter

I used it for a birthday ritual and it kept the kids involved and so happy to see the different seasons as they walked around the sun with a hand made candle

Even prettier than I expected

The artwork on the Around the Year mini silk is so lovely, with deeply saturated colors and attractive details like the spring flowers and a lovely butterfly. My first reaction upon opening it was that this was such great quality and much better than I had hoped for even knowing how great Sarah’s Silks are. Would definitely buy again!

Lightweight and Unbreakable

I purchased Sarah’s Silks for gifts. Living in Alaska with postage only going up, items need to be lightweight. Plus, as many items as possible need to be unbreakable. With something like silk and art, this grandma can still send a tangible gift.
