Fall Provocations Using Empty Frames and Loose Parts


Using frames are an opportunity for children to be creative using loose parts. I frequently offer this open ended creative invitation as a transition from our outdoor program to the classroom. You can set it up with some loose parts at the table or at the light table. 

Materials for frame activities are often found materials in nature or collected through projects like the Beautiful Stuff program. Because it is a regular routine in our kindergarten room, the children transition easily to this interesting and beautiful provocation. In the fall we often bring a few frames with us to the forest for children and set them out just as an invitation during the exploration time of our morning.


Here are a few ideas for other frame activities: 


  • beach stones, small driftwood, sea glass
  • twigs, leaves, stones
  • metal rings, screws, bolts
  • wooden cookies, twigs, wool, seed pods
  • leaves, nuts, seeds, twigs
