Natural resources offer children great opportunities for open ended play. They foster a sense of wonder and create space for imaginations to roam wildly.
A stone can be a person, a building block, a car, or a pattern piece. It may feel cool, it may be rough on one side and smooth on the other. It might have different colours swirled through it making it an ocean for one and a snake for another. A stone is more than a toy, it is an invitation to explore awe and wonder.
