Heuristic Play Set - 20 piece with calico drawstring bagRegular price $59.95
Heuristic play was a term coined by a child psychologist Elinor Goldschmeid in the early 1980's. Heuristic play describes the activity of babies and children as they play with and explore the properties of 'objects'. These 'objects' are things from the real world.
Why is Heuristic play important?
Heuristic play gives children the opportunity to experience an environment where they can develop different ways to be creative and expressive in their handling of a variety of objects. It is an effective way of encouraging children to explore artifacts from our culture and to develop their thinking further.
What are the main principles of heuristic play?
Heuristic play is rooted in young children's natural curiosity. As babies grow, they move beyond being content to simply feel and ponder objects, to wanting to find out what can be done with them. Toddlers have an urge to handle things: to gather, fill, dump, stack, knock down, select and manipulate in other ways.
