This natural beech wood nutcracker stands at 10cm tall, with a wood screw, making it an excellent loose part for play.
It particularly lends well to woodland or seasonal play, whilst offering children the opportunity to develop practical thinking, problem solving, imagination & strengthen hand muscles!
The theory goes that loose parts are a gateway to creativity and problem-solving for small children. Having loose parts available lets them choose and use the materials as they want to and allows them to experiment without a pre-determined outcome or a ‘right’ way to do things.
