What is Loose Parts Play?

Loose parts are materials that when given to our children they can become anything they wish from creating and making a robot to constructing their own den.

Loose parts can be used freely to create, explore textures and develop curiosity and imagination. These materials have no directions and no instructions, children can lead their own open-ended play using loose parts.
