Makerspace Giveaway Program Transforms this 3rd Grade Classroom

Each month, Creative QT gives away four packs of our bestselling peel 'n stick baseplates for the development of a makerspace in a school or library. The program launched in May and we are so excited to share our first winner's new classroom makerspace!

Mrs. Shelton, a third grade math and science STEAM teacher at Dallas Park Elementary School, built not, one, but TWO makerspace tables in her classroom. See her final results and a few step-by-step pictures of the process below.

Creative QT peel 'n stick baseplates are literally as easy to use as Peel, Stick & PLAY. All you need is a clean surface, the baseplates and a few building bricks.

Lay out the baseplates as desired, peel the backing off and place the adhesive side-down. Using building bricks to connect the baseplates to each other as you adhere them will ensure a secure, tight aligned placement.

Mrs. Shelton also placed some storage bins underneath for storing building bricks.
