Loose Parts Free Play (Suitable for 3-7 years + family involvement)  (max 40)

 Hosted by Aberdeen Play Forum, a Play Session in the heart of Aberdeen. Celebrating Children and Young people’s Right to Play, with a family Loose Parts Free Play Session.

What are Loose Parts? Loose Parts are materials like tarpaulins, milk and bread crates, planks of wood, pipes, guttering, logs, tree slices, fabrics, blankets, pillows, pots and pans, spoons, brushes, sponges, sticks, and stones – the list goes on….
Loose Parts are materials which children can move, adapt, control, change and manipulate in their play. Loose parts play offers children high levels of creativity and choice. The materials can be whatever the child wants them to be – the possibilities are endless. There are no set instructions with loose parts – children have to use their imagination, take control and lead their own play. With a little imagination they can be transformed into almost anything… Tarpaulins turn into dens, crates and tyres could be a car or a bus, pipes for water play and lots more! The possibilities are endless – so don’t forget your imagination!
