My Favorite Things: Playstands

I cannot imagine my classroom without playstands.  These simple structures are truly the heart beat of my room.   I house my housekeeping center under these canopies.

There is this natural impulse in children to seek hidden, tent-like places.  The playstands satisfy this inner need with such beauty and grace.

The playstands can easily be transformed into a farmer’s market, a restaurant, a bakery . . . whatever the mind can imagine.  The possibilities are endless . . .
