Scarves are fantastic accessories to use in an imaginary play activity with children.

 


As the weekend approaches, grab some shiny scarves, give them to your child, put on their favorite music and you will be surprised to see how many different ideas your child comes up with as to how to use the scarves in their imaginary play.

Some phrases stick with you for years.

 

One such phrase is something my legendary design professor said in class about 20 years ago.  Of course, this is the only piece of memory I have from that class of his, but this is what counts, no?

 

So what was that phrase that ended up being carved into my mind?  He said: “Always look at the details because every little detail has a reason”.
