We use an assortment of brushes in everyday life. Children recognise brushes from very early on – whether from seeing siblings / adults brushing their teeth, using a brush to tidy up mess or to brush their hair. Brushes have so many uses and can be so different in many ways – shape, size, feel (hard or soft) and even what they are made from. They are a wonderful talking point and they bring so many questions with them. This curious collection of brushes is a perfect early years resource for Heuristic Play.
Collection of no less than 25 different brushes

Treasure baskets are based on firm educational research into early years play.
As the items in a treasure basket have not been designed as toys, children should always be supervised during play.
