Loose Parts are natural or synthetic found, bought or upcycled materials that children can move, manipulate, control and change within their play. This set of loose parts comes complete with a sorting tray and 2 books to help with guiding and documenting open-ended learning experiences.
- LEARNING TOOLS: Use Loose Parts to spark children's creativity and innovation. This kit provides inspiration and information about the ways everyday materials can support open-ended learning, enhance play and empower children.
- CREATIVE COUNTING: Provides opportunities for children to practice counting and sorting with real objects that attract their interest.
- OPEN ENDED: Open ended materials, environments and experiences encourage problem solving and are child centered. Children involve themselves in concrete experiences using Loose Parts, which leads to explorations that occur naturally, as opposed to adult directed.
