Inspiring Creative and Innovative Play in Young Children through Loose Parts Materials

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Participants will examine how to develop exciting play opportunities for children using beautiful and alluring everyday materials to stimulate the senses, creativity, action, and inquiry based on the work of Lisa Daly and Miriam Beloglovsky. The purpose is to help awaken creativity and joy in early childhood settings and support play-based learning, both in children and adults.

At the end of this session the participant will be able to:
  • Analyze how the use of "loose parts" (e.g., materials that are captivating, open-ended and mobile) in ECE settings support the development of critical thinking and creativity while satisfying a child's natural curiosity and love of learning through interacting with their environment.
  • Test the benefits of using found objects and materials that children can move, manipulate, control and change while they play through a hands-on activity.
Intended audience: PFCE, EHS, QTL
