Collection: Loose Parts & Treasure Basket Pieces

WHAT ARE LOOSE PARTS AND WHY ARE THEY BENEFICIAL?

Loose parts is the label given to any collection of natural or man-made materials that can be used to expand upon children’s play. Loose parts have no specific function or goal. They can be moved, arranged, designed, taken apart and more! The concept was originally created in 1972 by architect Simon Nicholson who describe the use of open-ended materials in a child’s environment, which he believed was strongly linked to creativity and critical thinking later in life. In practicality, loose parts play has been around as long as there have been children to tinker with just about anything they can get their little hands on! Now the concept is widely applied in children’s educational settings around the world.
