Junk Modelling: Why Is This So Important?

21 Feb 2019

Junk modelling allows children to try new materials, in different ways, and make ‘something from nothing’ – creative play at its best. Using very simple (clean) materials such as buttons, fabric scraps, plastic bottles, cartons, cardboard tubes, boxes, jar lids foil and bubble wrap children have the opportunity to fine tune a broad range of skills and techniques. It’s fun, creative and encourages children to consider recycling and the need to be environmentally friendly.  

Furthermore, such activities are highly motivational, cognitively challenging and encourage self-efficacy.
