Loose parts boost the possibility of play during the early years, and these dried lotus heads are an interesting and intriguing addition to open-ended activities. The heads are 8 cm approx across.
Lotus flower heads have a great texture and plenty of little holes for hiding small items. They can also be used as a craft material during messy play - try dipping in paint and pressing onto paper for a curious pattern. They fairly substantial but do not stand up to too much rough play!
