What is improvisation in an early childhood setting? Why is it important and what does it achieve?

Some of the advantages of improvising play materials are quite surprising and extend beyond encouraging creativity and imagination.

This book suggests how improvisation can be introduced into the play and learning setting. It offers practical ideas and includes a wide-ranging list of possible sources for improvised materials.
