Loose parts are materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up, taken apart and put back together in multiple ways.
They are materials with no specific set of directions .
Materials such as fabric, crates, boxes, tyres, pipes, pallets, buckets, twigs, stones etc.
Having loose parts allows children to play as they choose and you will often find that children would rather play with materials that they can use and adapt as they please, rather than expensive toys and play equipment.
Encouraging children to play with loose parts will develop their imagination and creativity and develop more skills than playing with most modern toys.
'Loose parts' allow children to become engaged in play, develop their own ideas and explore the world around them.
