Loose Parts and Block Play

The beauty of pairing loose parts and block play is that it truly provides the opportunity for a child to have limitless opportunities to create a world through their imagination.

We know that block play in early childhood is something that is constant and continuous throughout the many stages of their development. As they grow by adding loose parts to be on hand, it encourages to deepen and extend their play. This type of play with loose parts lets the child truly shape and create according to their own vision. Since loose parts are so versatile, they can become anything and everything.

For this type of play you can really use any type of blocks and loose parts. What is pictured here are a wide range of materials that I have collected over the years, purchased on FB Marketplace, DIY, or have been gifted.
