In an article on the website childinthecity.org, author Allie Pasquier discusses using loose parts for community engagement activities: "Loose parts can be part of a truer reflection of a community and its culture, because the materials we can access and use change from place to place...From planned festivals to pop-up play events and educational spaces, loose parts can provide a window into a community at play...making a commitment to children, giving them the time, space, and materials to explore the world through play."
