Many grown-ups marvel at their little one happily playing with all sorts of ‘non-toy’ items they have found in the house or out and about. In the mind of a child, pebbles, sticks or often the contents of your kitchen cupboard may represent absolutely anything, from an apple tree to a zebra, or even a beautiful river. Children have this remarkable quality of completely unobstructed imagination and creativity.
How do we encourage creative thinking and foster our little ones’ imaginations in a world full of technology and linear storylines?
Open-ended play allows children to freely explore the world around them and express their individual creativity. There is no right or wrong way when it comes to play. With no restrictions or rules, children become the decision makers.
It can be a bit daunting for a child (and grown-up) accustomed to toys with predefined functions, to bridge the gap to loose parts play. The cards enable you to encourage your little one and advise on some possibilities as they start to investigate. Ultimately the goal is to move away from the guide, allowing full creative thinking and open-ended play.
Full of wood, canvas and 100% recycled paper, printed using vegetable ink, you won’t find any nasties here either, leaving a world fit for our little ones to enjoy.
