"Loose Parts" Snowflakes

February 8, 2017

Children naturally love to sort, manipulate and play.  Providing them with interesting, varied materials and allowing them to create is a great way to enhance their learning.  These varied materials are often called "loose parts" in a classroom setting and can be used for open-ended play.  

 

The Butterflies recently created amazing and intricate snowflakes with an assortment of items. Glass marbles and rectangles, q-tips and gems came together to create one-of-a-kind art.  The kid's ability to make symmetrical objects with varied sizes and shapes is amazing!  

 

These small parts and pieces can not only be part of visual art, but can be added to block building, kitchen and home area play and more!
