Loose parts hold a significant presence in our classrooms, available for independent exploration and creativity. Sometimes, they are set up as an “invitation”, as demonstrated here with the simple question posted, “Can you make your face?”. A variety of materials were set out on the table along with the question and a mirror. Children used the loose parts to represent themselves in the faces they created. Within this activity, multiple levels of learning and skill building emerged including self reflection and confidence, fine motor skills, sorting and counting, print knowledge, spatial awareness, and creative expression.
