Submerged Hallway Decoration Ideas
Don’t forget about the hallways. Kids get excited when the theme expands from their classroom into the other areas including the hallway. Use blue plastic tablecloths to cover the hallways. These can be purchase for $1 each at Dollar Tree.

These are easy to make and your kids can help with these easy decorations to add dimension to your hallways.
Use green streamers to make the effect of seaweed starting from the floor of the hall going up to desired height. Make each one different sizes and twisting to give them dimension as seen below. Take a look at the detailed instructions on how to make Sea Weed from Streamers.
Cover your walls with blue paper or blue plastic tableclothes from Dollar Tree for $1 each or Walmart for $.97 each. Use the Underwater inflatable creatures from Dollar Tree to hang or attach to the walls to give the underwater theme dimension.
Use clear balloons to make the look of bubbles but do not air these up until a couple of days before your VBS week. You can also use the clear plastic Christmas Ornaments but I recommend you wait to buy them until after Christmas Season and all the decorations go on clearance. It pays to plan ahead. You can ask your local Walmart, Target and so on what is their typical mark down time for Christmas items.
