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.
The finished two makerspace tables look darling in her classroom!
We hope your third graders love their new makerspace LEGO compatible tables, Mrs. Shelton!
