Heuristic Play - Conical Figures (10)
Heuristic play is rooted in young children's natural curiosity. As babies grow, they move beyond being content to simply feel and ponder objects, to wanting to find out what can be done with them. Toddlers have an urge to handle things: to gather, fill, dump, stack, knock down, select and manipulate in other ways. Heuristic play offers a group of children a large number of different kinds of objects and receptacles with which they play freely without adult intervention.
