The Wonder of Collections

🌟 Lots of lovely ‘collections’!🌟 Children naturally collect things. We’ve all been on walks with children that end with pockets full (theirs and ours!) of stones, sticks, feathers and shells. 🐚 🌳 Providing children with ‘collections’ of items appeals to this interest further and naturally allows their innate ‘schemas’ to grow. Any collection will encourage the children to naturally sort, categorise and order, and by comparing one item to another, they are using and developing a wealth of skills. Children’s inquisitive nature and creativity will take this play further when the collection will become a ‘loose part’ and all of a sudden you’ll see patterns and shapes appearing. Here at ‘Little Wonders’ we have always loved a collection. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ From our Grandparent’s array of china bells to our childhood chess sets, we are always on the lookout for a new ‘collection’. We have found them here, there and everywhere! Our collection of shoes is a personal favourite. An added dimension to this set is that some are in pairs and some are not. ♟ 🥿 👞 👟 However, these gatherings don’t just have to be of the weird and wonderful. Something as every day as a spoon can begin a marvellous collection. 🥄 🥄 🥄 If you’re home schooling right now : 🌟 Try challenging your ‘little wonderer’ to make a collection of their own and see what they find! 💫 🏡
