Children love using open ended materials to represent their ideas and with all of the different textures and forms that natural materials offer, they will be deeply engrossed in highly creative thinking. With a wonderful selection of natural materials, you can plan an outdoor curriculum rich in maths, where children engage in combining materials to make the most intricate designs – full of structure, order and pattern – all of which help to develop a deeper understanding of number, shape, space and measure and show deeper levels of concentration and perseverance.
This collection brings together a diverse selection of natural materials of different shapes, sizes, tones and textures to stimulate creative activity outdoors. It comes complete with two large wicker baskets for easy storage.
