The last week of October we had our book fair.
I meant to blog about the book fair experience, but failed to do so.
"Better late than never" is the motto this Friday.
Our school always uses Scholastic Book Fair company to provide the merchandise
for our book fairs.
This fall their theme was monsters.
But for the first time ever, I did something new.
I used Krista's Creative Clips clip art to decorate the book fair.
The table signs were adorable with Creative Clips monsters.
The ceiling was strung with monsters, too.
What a difference!
The kids are always super excited about the book fair.
It was nice to use monsters so close to Halloween, too.
I made monster-themed labels for everything.
These Top Secret UV Pens were a H-O-T seller at the fair.
The Dollar Tree colorful baskets and white baskets from Wal-Mart held things such as
book packs, pencils, erasers and pencil sharpeners.
Teachers make out their wish lists of books they would like purchased for their
It is a wonderful program to get books for the class.
Students fill out their wish lists, too.
The stand up sign on the table and on the floor by the books were
provided by Scholastic Book Fair.
I just used Creative Clips to make the book fair look bright and happy.
These paper lanterns easily turned into monsters.
I hung up the book fair sign so it could be seen as soon as you walked
into the library.
The paper fans, a purchase from Hobby Lobby, were terrific!
I loved they came in chevron patterns, stripes and polka dots.
The black and white backgrounds were perfect for the clip art.
Here are a few more examples of book fair decorations.
And I added a little bit of ribbon to tie the labels to the baskets.
It did not take much time to create the labels, dump the merchandise into the baskets
and put on the table.
It was easier to point students in the right direction, too.
We had students dress up in their costumes for Literacy Night on Thursday night.
We handed out lollipops to shoppers, too.
I'll leave you with Captain America because he is adorable!
