I need a carpet, or safe spot for my kindergarten students to meet/learn. In the past, I taped off a square, or stuck laminated shapes down, but I'm in a temporary room to start the year, and I don't want to mess up another teacher's new room. And also, with the construction on our school continuing, I'm not always sure of what may be on the floor. So, I found this $20 carpet at Big Lots. Came home, broke out the acrylic paint, and voila, turned an average carpet into something a lot more fun.
