“Loose Parts” is a play theory used mainly by early educators that essentially involves providing children with open-ended materials – bits and bobs like buttons, stones, wooden blocks, pom poms – to play and explore with as a way to stimulate creativity. (You can read more about the theory and practice here)
“Loose Parts” is also a good way to describe the various projects we all juggle – professionally, artistically and in the community. A whole bunch of random things, though all with a thorough line – creativity.
