Learning with Loose Parts
Cones, clay, leaves: there is so much to play with right outside your door. Discover the delight of playing and learning from loose parts play in nature! Engage with a variety of loose parts in this hands-on workshop and reflect on your play experiences. We will also share examples of loose parts creations and projects to inspire your practice.
Please bring or have access to some natural loose parts for this workshop, such as rocks, sticks, cones, and leaves. We will be creating and sharing together!
