Loose parts are not just random open ended materials. They are materials with soul waiting for children to find their potential. (Hayes, M. 2014) Commercial toys have their place-however we need to challenge our planning decisions to look for high quality play materials. The importance of selecting materials that can be used as props for children’s play and learning-using open ended materials that have multiple ways to be used or tools we need in our explorations. Specifically, this workshop will focus on the following: • Natural Materials • The Environment as the 3rd Teacher • Creative Recycling and Sustainability • Invitations to play • Storage PRESENTED BY EXPERIENCED PD FACILITATOR LOUISE STRODE – PENNY.
