I changed out one of my library bulletin boards at school for the month of October. I didn't want to do a totally Halloween theme. I decided on a mummy. From there I came up with the title, "All Wrapped Up in Reading". Cute, right?
I made the mummy by finding a piece of clip art that I liked. I then used the copy machine to blow it up to a good size. I used that as my template to roughly draw the mummy onto a piece of tagboard. From there, I cut it out and wrapped him up in toilet paper! Our school toilet paper is made from recycled material so it's not completely white. I think that works out really well for this mummy project, as mummies are supposed to be a little bit dirty and dusty, don't you think? :)
Believe it or not, there is not one single staple in this guy! The paper is just all wrapped and tucked! I cut the eyes from one of the Mini Monsters. (Yes, I could have just cut circles but I had the Cricut on for the title anyway so I just cut out some good clean circles, rather than doing it by hand.)
The title is the shadow from Simply Sweet. I went one step further by wrapping up the words "Wrapped Up" in tp too!
Students will get the chance to partake in this bulletin board if they complete a book review on a bat shape that they can pick up in the library. I hope to see it filling up soon!
