Full description

The theory of “loose parts” was first proposed by architect Simon Nicholson in the 1970's. Nicholson believed that it is the 'loose parts' in our environment that will empower our creativity. In a play, loose parts are materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up, and taken apart and put back together in multiple ways. They are materials with no specific set of directions that can be used alone or combined with other materials. Loose parts can be natural or synthetic. Having "loose parts" available in a playspace allows children to use these materials as they choose. Often you will find that children would rather play with materials that they can use and adapt as they please, rather than toys that have a single purpose. Encouraging children to use resources as they choose can provide a wider range of opportunities than one that is purely adult led. When children play with loose parts are using creativity and imagination and developing skill and competence.

6 bowls in the colors of the rainbow. Recommended age + 0 months. Presented in plastic bag.
