  1. Take pictures of each student wearing a crown. Display them in the classroom.
  2. Use grey paint and a kitchen sponge to sponge paint "bricks" onto a bulletin board or cardboard box to create a custom look or cozy reading spot.
  3. Twist green butcher paper and hang from the ceiling to the floor to create a beanstalk.
  4. Repurpose a crib mattress or use a twin size mattress to create a "Princess and the Pea" reading corner.
  5. Attach a full length mirror (the ones available in the back-to-school collage section of stores are shatterproof). Attach a sign reading, "Mirror Mirror on the Wall There's a Role Model in us All." 
  6. As a back-to-school project, have each student design a crest to display.
  7. Have students draw self-portraits of themselves as princes and princesses.
  8. Braid yellow yarn to create a Rapunzel braid to use as a bulletin board trim.
  9. Title a welcome board as "Once Upon a Time There Was a __ Grade Class"
  10. A low-cost way to enhance your Fairy Tale theme is to set up a display of books that relate to the theme by standing them on a counter or shelf.
