Loose Parts In The Playground

Here are some examples of how I have used loose parts in the playground at my school. There are many, many more materials that can be used, but these are easily sourced. Loose parts are fantastic as they are open ended and encourage creativity, imagination and problem solving. The children can move, design and invent uses for the materials and as a result their play is creative, and always evolving.

1. Tree Cookies, Logs, Sticks

2. Rocks, Pebbles

3. Hay Bales

4. Fabric Pieces

5. Cooking Utensils

6. Wood, Bricks

7. Bamboo Tubes

8. Baskets, Nuts, Bark

9. Plastic Tubes, Funnels

10. Electrical Reels

What loose parts do your children love?

  1. This looks like such a fun place to play! My daughter loves rocks - but she wouldn't mind getting her hands on all this other stuff too! ;)
