    So all 4 rooms on my end of the building do a "theme" for ours room for summer camp. We already have jungle, western, and luau themes, so my room decided on a picnic. We're going to cover our tables with the vinyl red-and-white checked tablecloths, and we're thinking big sun and clouds on the ceiling, and a big tree in the corner, with a picnic basket on the wall, and "ants" crawling around the walls.

    Ideas to make this do-able without being a ton of work, or other ideas? :)

    Hmm. I know Scholastic sells things with the picnic/ant theme. What you have planned sounds really fun.

    I'd love to wait until after the 4th... but we need to have the room set up in 3 weeks when summer school starts. I didn't see anything really really good at Dollar Tree today, but I didn't have time to just browse like i normally do. ;)
