Exploratory play is about asking questions: What
happens when I do this? What if I did it
this way? Experimenting with materials and pushing
their limits encourages us to consider a wide range
of possibilities when problem-solving. Playing around
with objects and ideas helps us see that there may be
more than one solution.
Some inventors have a goal in mind and work persistently
toward it. Others stumble across solutions to problems
they werent trying to solve.
