Being an avid reader, I thought this would be a great way to get great ideas for new books to read, and you would end the party with at least one to start on! I figured right before spring break would be a great time to get some new reading material, so last Tuesday my roommates and I hosted a book swap party.
Then we worked on the house....I have a whole pinterest board just for book pictures and quotes. I printed them and put them clothesline like on the wall.
I used a page from a falling apart picture book and made pinwheels to cover the tack that help the "clothesline" up.
and a bunting made of more re-purposed book pages.
Books wrapped and ready to be chosen for their new homes.....
The food table had some book quotes. I used a piece of notebook paper and a frame from the Dollar Tree. I wrote the quote on the paper, made some mini-books, and attached them to the bottom.
Are you ready for the 1% educational relevancy......I thought, this would be a great thing for students to do to. So I invited them to a book swap party. Here is what their invitation looked like (minus the color)
So there you go, not completely un-educational, and who knows, if it is successful, students could repeat the book swap and swap the book they got!
