Loose Parts Play is about playing with “stuff”
Loose Parts Play is a trailer load of ‘parts’ that have been recovered from the Stanley Road Waste Management Facility for children to play with. The ‘parts’ are not toys. They are any item that sparks the imagination and creates play.
Most parents will at some point say:
“He’d rather play with the box and the wrapping paper than the toy that is inside”
This statement is the underlying spirit of Loose Parts Play. Some examples of Loose Parts are computer keyboards, poly pipe, wooden reels, pallets, frypans, cardboard boxes, power tools and telephones.
All children and parents who engage with the Loose Parts Play immediately begin to view everyday ‘rubbish’ in a new way. The Loose Parts Play program strongly communicates the benefits of the ‘reduce’ and ‘reuse’ behaviours of the waste hierarchy in a fun, play based, educational setting.
