Mosquito Net Craft – Reading Corner

29 Jan

To create a reading corner zone in my classroom I wanted to use a mosquito net to define the area and so the area would still be visible for me to see what was going on in there!

After endless searching I was unable to find a red one – which is the colour I was looking for. So I enlisted the help of my very crafty mum to help me make one.

All you need area few metres of netting and a hula hoop.

I couldn’t find a red hula hoop and was going to spray paint it red until mum suggested we cover it with ribbon – much easier!

I then tied 4 pieces of ribbon onto the hoop and hung it up in my classroom.

I’m pretty happy with how the reading corner looks. My mum also made me all the cushion covers for me as well.

Today I am linking up with Essentially Jess for IBOT (I Blog on Tuesdays).

    I love it, it looks really cool, can I ask a question….. What is the reason for the red? Is it a colour linked with learning or something? Or do you just like red? 🙂 looks great though, enjoy term one

      Red doesnt mean anything much. Whenever I get a new classroom I pick a colour to decorate it with. My last one was aqua. I bought a gumball ottoman for my classroom, which was red and it all stemmed from there!

    It’s awesome, I have wanted to make something similar for my kids, but then we moved and our new house just isn’t big enough.
