Loose Parts - a buzz word, or a vital part of children's play?
From ropes and tyres, to pinecones and buttons, loose parts are brilliant in terms of play affordability. This type of play allows children to be creative, flexible, wonderous and use an array of skills.
We've bought together some of our favourite insights and ideas when it comes to using Loose Parts with children, in this handy card set. Our "Inspiration and Discussion Cards" have been popular with educators for many years, given their simple, highly visual format, and the ability to easily and quickly access key information and spark conversation and reflection.
