The benefits of Loose Parts Play

When children interact with loose parts, they enter a world of ‘what if?’ that promotes the type of thinking that leads to problem solving and theoretical reasoning. Loose parts enhance children’s ability to think imaginatively and see solutions, and they bring a sense of adventure and excitement to children’s play (Daly and Beloglovsky 2015)

The Scottish Government Loose Parts Play Tool Kit is worth a read and a great reminder of why cardboard boxes are often more fun than the expensive toys that come in them. Follow this link to take a look 🙂
