Loose Parts: Construction (LP Master Checklist PDF)

This week I was reviewing The Art of Loose Parts Master Workshop and had to share some of the amazing loose parts. Most of these can be had for a very economical price or free! The best loose parts or repurposed materials. Construction sites and companies, ReStore (Habitat for Humanity), junk stores, asking the families are some of the best sources.
