Funnels are great loose parts for water and sensory play, but they also are helpful during stem play, dramatic play, art projects, and other child-led learning. The exploration of hearing and vision, for example.
They are available in plenty of styles, materials, and size, so that potentially adds even more variety to the play. You can even make them out of pieces of paper, plastic bottles, and found objects like traffic cones.
To expand play, consider adding plastic tubing to the mix or rigging up a funnel stand…
