Heuristic Play

Yesterday afternoon I had the great pleasure of selecting and preparing some new resources. After searching high and low in and around the town where my setting is situated, I returned with arms laden with bags that made peculiar clinking and clonking noises as I tried not to set all the security alarms off (trying to quickly navigate a setting which is in the process of a major tidy is no mean feat!)

The resulting basket of wonderful textured items left me feeling quite pleased. I am a staunch believer in that it’s always positive if practitioners find themselves excited about a new resource, it enables us to impart that same enthusiasm and curiosity to the children we care for.

What are your thoughts on heuristic play and treasure baskets?
