This next idea isn’t a bulletin board picture, but I LOVE this idea for a welcome board decoration for school or as a poster or white board outside the classroom when parents are there (think new school year open house, welcome back etc).

It’s a GREAT reminder for parents of young children that all kids develop at THEIR level and speed and to NOT compare their child to others.

Motivational AND important!

Welcome board decoration for school - so motivational!

If you can’t read the saying on the popcorn-themed bulletin board, it says:

“Popcorn is prepared in the same pot, in the same heat, in the same oil and yet… the kernels do not POP at the same time. Don’t compare your child to others. Their turn to POP is coming!”

Do you play Wordle? I do! Every, single day!

I bet your students do too.

I LOVE this Wordle theme library bulletin board decorating idea!

cute, right?

Or this “Blooming Toddlers” idea – the handmade decorations are SO adorable!

I’m thinking of doing a butterfly theme bulletin board this Spring – and make it a bit interactive to make it more of a learning experience than only a cute decoration for the room.

A unique way to do this for preschool, kindergarten and elementary bulletin boards would be the Stages of the Monarch Butterfly.

I’ll display the four stages of development: from egg, to caterpillar (larva), to chrysalis (pupa) and then finally into a butterfly.

I think I’ll stencil or freehand the bulletin board title as “Stages of the Monarch Butterfly” at the top and then section the butterfly bulletin board into four squares, using one square for each stage.

It would be great if I could use actual photographs of each stage in the squares, don’t you think?

A butterfly life cycle bulletin board something like one of these in the picture below…

For older school-age kids ( like upper elementary or middle school), I think I’d use both the English and Greek word for caterpillar and chrysalis with more in-depth information about the stages, such as the length of each stage and descriptions.

I’m just thinking out loud, but I think it’s also a great motivational bulletin board that helps kids learn how we all become beautiful.


Also as Spring ideas – I like anything rainbow related… like this unique twist on a rainbow bulletin board using those free paint samples cards you get from Home Depot or Lowes, etc in the paint department:

rainbow bulletin board ideas for preschool or Day Care - any early education classroom - what a creative unique handmade bulletin board idea using paint samples shaped into flowers!

I also like this handmade chart for classroom decoration AND for interactive learning.

Like this one below – perfect to teach kids about money and how much things cost – tho those prices will be MUCH higher these days … sigh
