Puzzle Center

This is my puzzle center!  Both pieces of furniture I attained free of charge from Scholastic Books for ordering so many books for my childcare and earning the bonus points.  I have various puzzles for all different capabilities.  There is a shape, color, counting puzzle, some transportation puzzle toys, feeling-color bears puzzle, 3-piece animal puzzles, magnetic puzzle people, maze puzzlers, cardboard puzzles, and many different wooden puzzles.  There are also magnetic maze puzzles from Lakeshore on this stand, sensory puzzles, and self-help skills puzzles.  I often rotate the puzzles and disinfect them often.  On each shelf under the puzzles are laminated pictures with names to show what goes in each location. 

If anyone has any suggestions of puzzles or resources that I should incorporate in this learning center......please share!  I would love to hear from you =-}

PS...This center is a stand-alone center.  I have additional science puzzles in that center, musical puzzles in the music center and extra puzzles where we have table toys.  We LOVE puzzles!
