What are Loose Parts?
Loose Parts are materials with no fixed purpose that can be moved around and manipulated by children and used in many different ways.
The idea of Loose Parts came from architect Simon Nicholson. In the 1970s he was taking an interest in how children play and interact with their environments. He noticed that children weren’t given the opportunity to play and experiment with “Loose Parts” so he wrote: How NOT to Cheat Children – The Theory of Loose Parts.
"All children love to play, experiment, discover, invent and have fun.”
– Simon Nicholson
