clubhouse ideas

Hi everyone! I'm thinking about using a Kindergarten Clubhouse theme next year.

1. Do you have any ideas for how to decorate my room/library?

2. Do you think I'm making a mistake by using this theme? I think it's so cute (I want to tie in the whole idea that we are bonded together by our love of books/ as well as club members help each other/ make rules for the classroom, etc...) HOWEVER, I always discourage kids from forming exclusive clubs, and I'm afraid this may encourage this? What to you think? Is it OK if I emphasize that everyone belongs in our club?

This sounds like a neat idea. Everyone one is in the club. In fact, they could think up a secret password to get into class.
As for decorating, use a big box such as a refrigerator box to make a clubhouse. Cut a spyhole in one of the walls to look out with a pair of binoculars. Put up a Welcome sign. Mailbox-cut a slot for letters in one of the walls. You could put stuffed animals, toys and books inside. Use flashlights for reading. Use wooden crates for tables and maybe a small old tire for a chair and a tin-can telephone. Put up a bead curtain and/or on the door, make an "alarm" system using jingle bells on a string across the entrance. Have fun.

PVC clubhouse

I made a rainforest hut (reading hut) out of pvc pipe last year and my class loved it. It only takes a couple of hours and I spray painted it brown. I covered it in rafia(grass table skirt) on the top and sides. I used green vines and made a huge tree out of brown paper crunched up. It was cool. I am at a library now that used pvc pipe to make a much larger one and decorated it as under the ocean by hanging fish and blue crepe paper from the top. My hut is easily moveable and I just snapped it apart and stored it in my closet for the summer.

Tounces... you're ideas are fabulous!! thanks so much!

Lisa: When you make something out of PVC pipe like that, what do you put between the pipes for walls? Or did you just spray paint the pipes brown.

I've tried to locate those great pictures of people's reading nooks that were on this site for the contest, but I cannot find them anywhere!!!

I didn't put anything for the walls. I just had the pipe. I used a couch in in it. I have pictures of it if you want them. I need your email I guess if you want to see it. I entered the contest or at least I thought I entered the contest but then I wasn't listed as an entry so I guess my email didn't go through.!!!!! OH well, I don't know where to find those pics either.

I emailed the editor, and they said that they are working on making a new website just for bulletin boards. All of the stuff from the contest is on there, and it will be "officially" opening in August. The website is:

http://www.bulletinboardpro.com/

If you can email me, I'd love it!! My email is apl125@psu.edu

Thanks!!

If you click on the link in the posting above this one (the new bulletin board site) and then click on reading areas, there is a picture of a 4th grade reading clubhouse that is REALLY cool!

Maybe put a pool table or video game player in.
