Today the children were exploring the many loose parts we have in our environment. They were connecting the links, dropping them through the paper rolls watching as they trail out the end. They used the rocks and shells for “food” and filling up the dump truck.
G.P. found the small plastic tubes and was placing them on her fingers declaring them to be “Spider fingers”.J.C. discovers the cloths pegs, he put one on each hand and said, “Crocodile Fingers!”
Loose parts are invaluable to our program as they foster the children’s imagination, creating their own world of play.
Maybe you will be inspired to look at everyday objects differently!
