There’s something about tiny little pieces of pretty much anything that little ones just can’t resist – and I’m here for it because it keeps their attention forever! When it comes to Valentine’s day, I dive all the way into the red, pink, and glittery. Here are some of the loose parts that I love for a Valentine provocation:
- Costume jewelry
- Heart-shaped vase filler or table-scatter
- Small containers (shaped like hearts of course)
I put them all on a heart tray, and that helped make them even more enticing – don’t you want to play with all of this?!
Here are some of the beautiful images that we created with these pieces – After I made a heart with a necklace that became the quick favorite. I try not to join in right away just for this reason, I want my littles to use their own imaginations. In this case, figuring out how to make that heart shape was a lesson in problem solving so I went with it!
The great thing about all of these loose parts is that they can be used for so many different things – some that I plan, and others that the children come up with all on their own!
