Benefits of Offering Natural Box:-
Natural materials are perfect resources for use in heuristic play sessions when children are developing their creative and critical thinking skills. A selection of interesting cones, woods, dried flowers and stones provides children with many opportunities to develop their conceptual understanding of big and little, same and different, long and short, few and many, heavy and light.
Collection of woods can Help the children to notice the variations in colour and texture and provide magnifiers so that they can look more closely at the grains that make up the woods.
Natural materials can be used very creatively to produce designs and collages. All that is required is a selection of natural materials and an area in which to produce the design. This could be a tray, a plain coloured table mat, a flat mirror, a large piece of white paper or a sheet spread out on the ground. The important thing about this activity is that the resources are not glued down, so the designs are transient. Things can be moved around and changed and at the end of the session the resources can be packed away to use on another occasion. Photographs are an ideal way to retain a record of the creations the children have made.
Natural building resources will encourage the children to be more creative in their building and extend the range of problems they have to solve as they explore how to build with irregular shaped materials.
Health and safety:-
Be particularly careful if the children are at an age where they are likely to put the natural resources in their mouths. Some Parts are present a choking hazard.
