Resources for play – the cardboard box
With the reduction in school budgets, early years practitioners need to be much more resourceful and look for FREE resources. Fortunately, one of the easiest to access is the cardboard box. Is it any wonder when this simple resource is so open-ended? You can pick them up for free and in as many shapes and sizes as you like! They are ideal for small world and role play as well as construction and when in use, tend to attract groups of children who then learn to collaborate and share ideas.
