Play with loose parts enables the children to use the imagination and design their own play constructs. One moment they are baking, the next it is a potion, the next the parts are a city and the rocks are cars. The possibilities are endless.
Ideas for loose part can be:
- Old pots and pans
- A collection of rocks and sticks
- Different fruits and vegetables cut up
- Treasures collected from a walk around the block
- Buttons, wool or other textiles
