Imaginations have been flowing in the Hinckley pre school with loose parts play. Investigating and exploring how different resources and items such as boxes, tubes, guttering, egg boxes and plant pots can be transformed in to whatever the children can think of.
Some chose to paint their items, mixing together paint, shaving foam and PVA glue making a lovely thick and puffy mixture. They painted cars, houses, trucks- in fact you name it they were painting it! Working together and talking about what creations they could make, a fun and messy time was had by all. Some children even helped to clean up afterwards.
