String Theory

I’ve been working lately on a resource document about Nicholson’s theory of loose parts, but thought I’d jump the gun a bit and share some images from a recent play session in which I introduced some brightly coloured yarn.


It’s such a simple thing but this one repurposed object creates new opportunities for children to experience their familiar environment in different ways, to create webs to trap their friends in and make new playful connections between the separate elements of their world.


Plus, it looks cool, even after the fact.
