Natural Play Materials & Heuristic Play for Children

Natural play materials encourage early years children to use their imagination and demonstrate their skills.
Exploring natural play materials can enhance their sensory development and also lead to children using their own creativity whilst learning. Our range is ideal for KS1 and early years children.
With heuristic play, this involves the sensory exploration of ‘everyday items,’
 The difference between this and playing with toys is that toys are often limiting in what they can do, meaning a car is meant to be rolled back and forth, while heuristic play with any household object allows your child’s creativity to take over. Having an open-ended object to play with stimulates innovation, creativity and imagination.
