Loose Parts & Sensory Play


Loose Parts & Sensory Play

 

Loose parts can be made of any material, natural, synthetic or even better - a combination of the two. They can be found natural materials from a garden, such as twigs, leaves, sticks and stones. They can also be elements that are repurposed and given second and third lives, such as boxes: milk bottle tops, lids, or plastic containers. They can also be the more traditional resources found in a learning environment such as blocks, marbles, buckets, and craft materials such as pompoms, match sticks, paddle pop sticks.

Why are loose parts a fantastic addition to your early learning environment?

Loose parts will provide children with countless opportunities to create, design and learn. Children will be able to drive their own learning though the open ended elements you provide.

Some examples of loose parts are:
Sticks, stones, branches, leaves, tree slices, tree cookies, seed pods, pine cones, gumnuts, wooden off-cuts, stumps and logs, gravel, sand, repurposed plastic materi- als such as yoghurt tubs, cans, bottle lids, bottles, large and small boxes of wood or cardboard, crates both of plastic and wooden, fabric, rope, string, tyres... and the list could go on.
