Loose Parts: Inspiring Play in Young Children
“Loose parts” refers to any materials bought, found, or upcycled - acorns, hardware, stones, aluminum foil, fabric scraps, for example - that children can move, manipulate, control, and change within their play. Loose parts capture children’s curiosity, give free reign to their imagination, and encourage creativity. With more than 550 color photographs of many kinds of loose parts in real early childhood settings, classroom stories, and a dynamic overview, Loose Parts provides inspiration and information about the ways everyday materials can support open-ended learning, enhance play, and empower children. Activites are designed for ages 2 to 6.
