Heuristic Play is a wonderful opportunity to capitalize on children's curiosity about the objects that make up the world around them. There is no right way or wrong way to play with Heuristic Play resources, so everyone's ideas are equally valid and worthwhile. The open-ended nature of the resources means that all children can explore and investigate in their own way, applying their own creative ideas and building on their own experiences. All items come with what is shown in the images. Ages 1+
