Book Fair

We're having a book fair this week.  Scholastic's theme for this book fair is "Under the Sea."

I attended a book fair workshop a couple of weeks ago and received a free promo code to choose a select item from the school resource catalog.  I again choose the decorating kit.  It is full of so many great items and definitely saves me a ton of time from having to create extra items or to go shopping all over town to gather all the items I would need.

I used everything from the kit to decorate (and then some).  Here is the front doors to the media center all decked out with the Under the Sea theme.

Here are the inside doors to the media center decorated in the "Under the Sea" theme.

To add a little bit of pizzazz, I made some coral out of paper strips.

I used the fish banner in the decorating kit to make fish swimming under the waves.

This fun squid hat also comes in the kit...fish face is optional...but fun.  ;)

These are some of the other faces I make throughout the duration of the book fair.  I really do love the book fair, but it is A LOT of work to put together and run.  I am happy to see it come, but also happy to see it go.

And just because you made it through all my crazy pictures, I have a freebie for you.  You can snag a copy of the fun little book fair banner shown in the first picture in my TpT store.  Just click HERE.

Hope you enjoy!

P.S.  These ideas would go great with my "Oceans of  Fun" Media Center theme.  Click HERE to check it out on TpT.  =)
