This fun marble maze was created by Daycare Spaces member, Jen Hinton of Stepping Stones Pre-K Academy. She attached Noise making-whistling tubes to wire cube shelving panels.
DIY Drying Rack
Using the same type of wire panels, and zip ties, Jen made this DIY Drying rack. It would also make a great rack for puzzles, or a place to store the kiddos paperwork to send home.
To add some extra pizazz, Jen added duct tape to her shelves. She used different colored duct tape to organize her learning spaces (for example: Yellow=Science).
Outdoor Music Space
This clever outdoor music station was built by Daycare Spaces member, Laura Hick of SweetPea Dayhome. Laura was able to find xylophones and chimes from thrift stores. She purchased the pipes from the plumbing section at the hardware store. To get the pipes to sit in the hole she glued a connector piece to each one. To "play" the tubes- Laura cut out a rubber "mallet" from a garden kneeling pad.
This outdoor kitchen was built by Daycare Spaces member Teresa Becker, of Heartprints Daycare. You can see more of her outdoor space here. Her pallet kitchen is a young chef's dream. Although Teresa is lucky enough to have a working sink-many of the objects shown can be found as yard sales or thrift stores.
