Loose Parts Play!
A description of the incursion!
Most of us have seen kids have more fun with the cardboard box than with the toy that was in it!
Our incursion today embraced this concept and put together an eclectic collection of natural and manufactured, recycled or recyclable materials for a unique experience. The items came with no defined use and could be moved, changed and manipulated. There were no instructions, children were invited to use their own imagination and creativity and develop their own play scripts.
And they did!
They loved it. There were concerts, singing competitions, weddings, TV shows, houses, camp fires, computer shops, kitchens and cafes and so much more!
