Tree idea for Reading Area, tent. Options: attach some of the branches to the ceiling /or drape thin blue cloth for sky/night sky. Add white Christmas lights to the "sky" i. on the hanging fabric or wall ceiling.
Tree for My Forest Explorer Theme! Took forever to make, but it was worth it! This would be so cool for an elementary classroom, and have the kids color apples to hang from it! Perfect for a reading corner :)
