Book Fair: Story Laboratory science lab

I just finished out a very successful Book Fair at the largest of my elementary schools.  It was such a great year!  The spring theme from Scholastic is "Story Laboratory: reading gives you superpower".  I went all out with the science lab theme.

The first thing I made sure to do was order the decorating kit from the Scholastic Resource Kit.  I always use a portion of the $100 advance Scholastic Dollars they give you to purchase this.  While a majority of the items I use are re-purposed or purchased, these kits always seem to have the little details that you can't find anywhere else.

When walking up to the Fair, you see this bulletin board in the hallway:

This idea was born from this science bulletin board.

As you enter the Fair, the doors look like this:

The reading tube was an idea from Scholastic.  I purchased the clear PVC rooking panel and concrete form that the duct tape is wrapped around from Menards.

The check out desk:

This robot was inspired by this amazing post on Book Fair decorations.

Are you having a Book Fair? I would love to see pictures of what you did.  Share your link in the comments!
