These are the Waldorf loose part ‘toys’ my children play with everyday…
Sticks & rocks
Playsilks and rectangle blocks
Wooden beads with shoe laces for threading
Little wooden cars
Tree branch blocks
(yes, lots of blocks!)
They use them to build towers, buildings, roads, fairy houses (lots of fairy houses!), for small world play and whatever they imagine. These toys are always out and available for play in our lounge room. I don’t tend to rotate them other than sometimes changing which basket they are in *grin*
The brilliant thing about these toys is that the children don’t grow out of them like other toys. They can be used very simply and then in more complex and imaginative ways as the children grow.
What do your children play with everyday?
Happy playing, Kelly
