Our New Block and Building Center

We've been working on a block center this week in our ever-evolving playroom.

We bought a cube shelving unit from Target that's similar to but smaller than the Ikea Expedit. For a fairly inexpensive piece of furniture (we got it for $52), it's quite sturdy and was quick to put together. We have a couple of extra shelves from an old unit on the floor in the corner to provide a hard surface to build on.

The unit is filled with a variety of blocks, building materials, and imaginary play figures. I may switch out the bags and buckets for more natural baskets in the future. Isn't this a lovely inspiration picture?
