Summer in Maine is a short, but sweet season that we Mainers look forward to all winter long. It’s a season to celebrate!
Our friends at Sarah’s Silks have created beautiful dress-ups and silk playthings for children to celebrate summer. Ideal for warm summer days, pure silk is nourishing to a child’s senses: lightweight and cool to the touch.
May you and your children enjoy these last, sweet weeks of summer!

In this week’s “Sunday with Sarah” video, I discuss the benefits of string games such as Cat’s Cradle for children’s learning, and why a simple finger string is my favorite stocking stuffer or party favor for children 5 and up.
Did you play Cat’s Cradle or other string games as a child? Does your child play? What are your favorite string games?
