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!
