Loose parts are small, moveable objects such as sticks, rocks, log rounds, fabric, crates, ropes, etc. that can be used by children to build and create.
Adding loose parts to your play area can be an inexpensive and effective way to increase children's creative play and experimentation. It is easy to gather loose parts yourself from nature or from your local recycling depot, However, if time is an issue or you are a teaching professional who would like support to integrate loose parts play into the curriculum, then you may want to get help from a loose parts service provider.
