    We did this for a family fun night. We called the gym "camp read s'more." It was a lot of fun. Maybe you could use a small tent in your reading area. We also put flashlights in a tub nest to the tent. The kids loved it. My favorite part was "fishing for a good story." I made four ponds; who, did what, where, and when. I then put ideas on fish to go into the ponds (example: I wrote big hairy bear on a fish and put it in the who pond). The kids took turns fishing out a fish from each pond and then using those four fish to create stories. It was a great writing prompt and their imaginations soared. I made the ponds out of construction paper, laminated them and taped them to the floor. Then I just put the fish on top. If you need it for a bullitin board you could staple the pond on the bb then create a pocket out of construction paper to put the fish in.
