    I usually have kept the whole group meeting area and the library in the same place. This year I was thinking about making them separate. I will probably buy a $20 rug at Home Depot but I can't seem to find vinyl pillows cheap. I don't want bean bags because they became an issue during my first year of teaching.

    Does anyone know where I could pick up plastic pillows at a low cost?

    You might could find some vinyl table clothes and make some covers for whatever pillows you might find.

    Patio chair cushions are probably on sale right now, you could use those as pillows. I'm going to, because my little friends discovered a hole in the bean bag last year and and the filling all over the floor, so no more bean bags for me!

    You can also buy tablecloth/vinyl material at Joann's Fabric. Also, you can buy the beads to refill your bean bag on line.

    Once upon a time I used carpet samples from flooring stores.

    My concern is the issue of lice and bed bugs (shivers). I will check Target tomorrow to see if there are vinyl cushions. Thanks for the idea!
