We have many bottle tops in our loose parts station and they are something that gets used a lot!
This week I have been adding mirrors to our loose part play and enhancing the experience.

The mirrors add depth and a new perspective to the children's play. If you add several mirrors then you introduce the children to a basic concept of endless and infinity.
Mirrors reflect light and images and by moving their bodies the children will see something different in their mirror. But the structures built on them will stay the same as the base image changes!

This activity can be used to 

  • Discuss size and height
  • Colour match/ sort and organise
  • Build structures
  • Balance
  • Explore reflections
  • Explore infinity
  • Help develop a steady hand

  1. How fun! I just decided to get rid of some mirrors I had been storing in the attic. Doing something like this with our three year old would be a lot of fun!
