    Reading Corner

    Ok, this is going to be cheesy, but maybe you could tweak it to meet your needs.

    What about "Garden of Readin'" (although that would not be grammatically correct- Garden of Reading would be better, but doesn't sound like Eden then).

    For the grass you could buy some cheap indoor/outdoor turf at Lowe's or Home Depot (it's not very expensive even if you want a large rug sized portion) and to keep the edges from fraying you could hot glue cute ribbon as the border (use low-melt glue sticks that won't melt the plastic turf carpet).

    For your pickets buy some poster board and cut out the pickets, then cut straight pieces to use as the cross bars. You could staple, hot glue, or tape that to the wall. It would be cheap (you could laminate it to last) and not permament.

    I have seen cheap artificial trees and that would be cute and cozy in the corner. You could put decorations on the tree for each season (the kids could make those). Apples for back to school, pumpkins in oct., turkeys in nov., pine trees in dec. etc...

    I LOVE your reading corner theme! I might have to borrow your idea... hope you don't mind (it's what teachers do best).
