In the kits I have thought of materials that would benefit a child’s learning allowing them to experience divergent and enquiry based learning whilst expressing their creativity.
Loose Parts are open ended materials that can be used in multiple ways.
For Example: Pop sticks can be used as:
Legs for a creation
A roof for houses and buildings
A stem for a flower
As you can see by the examples above there is more than one purpose and no right or wrong way. I personally think giving the opportunity of choice takes away the fear of failure and promotes the feeling of Power “I can do this” and “I’m proud of what I’ve made”.
