Mariah D. created these wonderful labels for her Toy Bins. She used the Avery 2x4 Labels. Avery offers an easy to use design center.
Jess T. of Little Bears Family Childcare added this
double sided chalkboard to her outdoor space. She also shared the Magnet Boards she made from Oil Drip pans.
This great loft was built by Teresa B.
On the top she has a reading and writing center (Love how she
used the shoe hanger as puppet holder).
Below she incorporated a lot of activities such as: A magnet board, busy boards and this fun ball chute.
Lilyan L. of Bright Beginnings Family Child Care updated her dress up space.
I love how she incorporated a full length mirror in her space.
Patty T. from Pumpkin Patch Preschool shared photos from her annual art exhibit.
In addition to showing off the great works of Art-it is also a great way to involve the community.
Patty shared so my wonderful installations including this one featuring loose parts. You can see more from her exhibit here.
Jean H. from Treasures of the Heart Preschool and Child Care built this fabulous new mud kitchen for her outdoor space. It's a chef's dream kitchen!

DIY tic tac toe board that use painted rocks as playing pieces!
Every year Laurie C of Laurie's Childcare has a Sunflower contest. She sends home Sunflower seeds for the kids to grow at home and whoever wins gets bragging rights and a blue ribbon! What a fun way to celebrate Summer!
Candasa U. created this DIY Play house from Dollar Store foam core board . It's ready for the kids to paint!
Jo Anne E. picked this adorable play kitchen up from a daycare center that closed. They were in rough shape, so she sanded them and painted them to match her other pieces! It turned out great!
Check out the new outdoor water table at Little Bear Family Child Care! Jess T's Hubby picked up a free produce table from a store, her daughter painted it, and they installed a drain! It looks Super!
Shelley W. created this fun garden center out of pallets for her outdoor space.
I bet her garden will be full of all kinds of wonderful plants!
This design would be good to use for an outdoor tool bench too!
Look at this new Play Structure being built at Kelly's Clover Patch! Isn't it great?
I love how it is built around the tree-for a tree house feel!
Great big steps for climbing!
