In the Martin & Sylvia: Saturdays! story, “The Meeting Spot”, Sylvia has a playdate with a brand-new friend. She’s nervous at first about what they will do, but soon discovers they both love stuffed animals.
Here is a fun and easy way to organize your stuffed animals. All you need is a length of ribbon (preferably the height of your room), several clothes pins, and a little loop on top to help secure it to your ceiling. First, lay out the ribbon and then adhere the clothes pins either with strong glue, a glue gun or by sliding the ribbon through the little hole in the middle. Then secure the top to the ceiling with a hook and clip all your stuffed animals. Look! Its a stuffed animal tree!
