I absolutely love my playstands. I think I would rate these as the one of the best buys I have ever made for my classroom. They are so easy to transform into a variety of things to fit the mood of current happenings. And they make great space ships! I start by putting the playstands at an angle:
I go to Big Lots and gather a variety of items – a white plastic table cover, a silver car sunshade, tin foil, duck tape and any super cheap gadgets.
STEP 1: I begin by covering the top with the white table cover and duck tape it to the playstands.
STEP 2: Cover the sides of the playstands with foil. I cover the shelves as well and put a strip of foil at the top of edge of the playstands. I use the silver sunshade as the door into the space ship. Stretch plastic wrap over the side “windows.” Secure with duck tape.
STEP 3: Hot glue a variety of gadgets to a piece of white poster board for dashboard.
STEP 3: Hot glue poster board to foil lined shelf.
Ready for takeoff!
Cool! An excellent spaceship, you did a great job with putting it all together.
Thanks for sharing.
how fun! My son has created a similar space ship play area in our play room. Tons of fun!!! Using a car sunshade is a fantastic idea!!! hope the kids enjoy it, it looks like fun!
Where did you buy your playstands? I’m in the market…
I purchased them 7 years ago from an online person. I will have to go back and look it up! I will post who in a few days! I researched it and found the best deal at that time. 🙂
Very clever idea, and the best part about it is that it doesn’t look like it would be too hard or costly to make. Thanks for posting!

I wanted to know where you got the play stands from?
Hi Miriam, I have purchased mine from different places online. Do a google search to find a supplier who can deliver to you! There are lots of folks who make them. You can even find plans on the internet to make your own!
