Boulders & Pebbles

A boulder way to play…

Boulders and pebbles provide a rich developmental landscape that is high in play value. The boulders can add landform, contours and level changes to a play environment. They provide a place to jump or simply to sit and chat with friends.

Pebbles offer multiple play possibilities, as loose material for filling, pouring and moving, as a landscape for small-world play and as a large number of small items for placing and arranging. Each piece of stone has unique details, which young children are observant enough to distinguish. Close up the colours are variable, as are shape and size, allowing for a great deal of sorting and pattern-making.
