Six item free play

Chose any six items from around the house and enjoy some free play with no rules! 

What to do 

To get you started try picking a wooden spoon, box, tin can, pebble, leaf and t-shirt. Use your imaginations to inspire free play using the items you have chosen. You could make a face or a person – or pretend to be someone you know. You could try and add a different theme to your game by only picking items that are round or objects that smell nice! The choice is yours because you make up the rules! 

Support from the Play team 

“Let the child lead the play and explore how they want to include each item. The possibilities are endless and can help children express how they’re feeling.”
