We are collecting materials for loose parts play in our playground. Loose parts are materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up, and taken apart and put back together in multiple ways. The children play with these materials and it allows children to be creative, cooperative and have lots of different experiences.
We are looking for donations of the following materials-
Bottle tops (in a plastic bag), ropes, empty clean tubs and tins, wheels, pieces of pipe, ball pit balls, pots and pans, planks of wood, stumps of wood.
Please donate any of these things if you have them at home and no longer use them. There will be 2 clean green wheelie bins outside the main entrance and any donations can be put in these bins. Loose parts is about using materials that are available to us. We are also planning to ask local businesses.
