The Theory of Loose Parts
loose parts = imagination + creativity
Kids really get to know the environment if they can dig it, beat it, swat it, lift it, push it, join it, combine different things with it. This is what adults call creative activity...a process of imagination and environment working together.
Based on the Book Loose Parts, inspiring play in young children by Lisa Daly
