So I originally cut these out in August, when my daycare was having a flowers theme, but didn't get around sewing them until recently. What were intended to be dancing scarves are now obsolete, as 11 of the 16 kids graduated to kindergarten, and the new batch couldn't care less about music and dancing.

That said, they love storytelling. Not just books, but any sort of story. Improvised stories save my life during group transitions, seriously. So these scarves are now story scarves. They live in the block area, and they're meant to mix with people toys, to be backgrounds for playing out a story a teacher improvises.




The blues are good for snow, the orange is almost always lava.


The brown tends to be quicksand/normal sand.


The left rainbow flowers are the jungle, brown is chocolate or mud.


The stripes ladders, the squares are buildings, especially jail.

The scarves are all cotton, about 18x18 inches, and double hemmed so that no raw edges are showing. They've gotten some pretty good use. At some point I'll probably make some that DON'T have flowers, but I also don't want to be too literal. Imagination is the point of these, after all.

Thanks for all the nice words!

CLM, I will literally never say no to free swag for daycare. Especially not something worked on with the kind of love you put into all your creations. But please don't feel like you have to, I know you have a billion things going on in your life.  Smiley
