Paws for Books

Our Scholastic Book Fair is coming up soon and the theme for spring is "Paws for Books." I am doing some fun things to build the excitement for our book fair.

I created these fun freebies that I am going to use with my Kinder and Firsties this week.  

You can edit them to add your book fair information on the right side where the open book is.

I will also have the bookmarks available during our book fair.  You can download this file for free in my TpT store by clicking HERE.

I am also going to be having a selfie contest to help build the excitement of the Book Fair.  I am asking families to use a dog or cat photo filter to take a selfie and post it on our school's Facebook page for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate.  These fun filters can be found on free apps like Facebook Messenger, Instagram, Snapchat, and the MSQRD app- most of which parents will have already on their smart devices.  Our school's facebook page is private, so it will be completely safe for our families to share these fun selfies.  

A fun way to advertise for you Book Fair is through e-invites.  A cool site to use to make e-invites is Paperless Post.  You can choose from their designs or even upload your own.  They have templates for flyers that are free and easy to customize.  You can check them out HERE.

These are just a few ways that I am trying to build the excitement around our Book Fair and get our kids' paws on some great books.  Do you have any great advertising ideas for book fairs?  Share them in the comments below.  =)
