While we did purchase some furniture from education suppliers, coming to our financial rescue was IKEA. We found some super cool additions to our space that didn't break the bank and helped us to pull together something that looks amazing.
Colourful Robot Housing
We are fortunate to have a nice collection of robots for the children to work with. It makes sense to have them on display and make them a centerpiece of the space. This storage solution provides a fantastic home to our robots and some of our other resources. It creates a lovely focal point and adds a splashes of colour. Each section houses a different robot or resource. The children find it easy to access and put things away.

The colourful wall clock fitted the theme of the room and looks great. It was just one of those things you happen upon as your journey through the maze that is IKEA.

Decor that delights

IKEA does kids stuff well - that's for sure. We found a cute robot poster to hang on the wall and space invaders style wall decals to jazz up the entry into the Fab Lab.
The brightly coloured hangers are functional and fun. We hang our activity tags from them.
Losjon Hanger - AUD $9.95
Easy access materials
The children's section of IKEA has a nice range of art materials. The Mala paper roll dispenser and paper roll refills are so fantastic for the children to use. Unroll the paper along the workbench to work on or tear a piece off for some team brainstorming.
