Great ideas! I love so many of them! Pinning and will be checking your boards out on Pinterest.
I just wanted to say how much I love your site. I have used so many of your ideas in my play school, but also to come up with ideas of my own. Your step by step is genius and the pics are perfect to show the children what someone else has created. 🙂 Thanks again and I cannot wait to try some of these.
