There are recognised benefits of children playing with loose materials, including promoting active inclusive and cooperative play, free creativity and invention, encouraging playground harmony and childhood development. Nature Based Loose parts play is a perfect medium for kids to tinker with the materials and ideas to create their own masterpieces.
NBP supports LPP through supplying Nature Based Loose Parts and providing educational incursions to schools and communities, facilitating kids and teachers in Loose Parts Play.

Create. Cooperate. Invent.
