¬†If you have a bulletin board in your classroom or office, it is time to get it ready for Spring. ¬†This article will give you some ideas on how to decorate your bulletin board for Spring.
"Spring means Green." ¬†Start by using green construction paper for your background on your board. ¬†You can usually use a paper stapler to secure this solidly.
Theme Ideas; ¬†Make a garden, either flower or vegetable garden. ¬†Place picture snap shots of students or employees on each piece of flower or produce. ¬†If you do produce, try to match personalities with the particular vegetable. ¬†For example, a lady worker, that likes to party, could be a tomato. A tall individual could be a corn stalk, etc.
Another idea could be to make a park with all attending it like a Spring Picnic. ¬†Simply place a table cloth in the center of the board. ¬†Then place pictures around it. ¬†Cut out food items out of a magazine and staple them to the table cloth.
You could also do a flock of birds against a blue sky background. ¬†Birds return in the spring. ¬†Place their names on the birds or place a circle snapshot of their face on the head of the bird. ¬†You could also make a large tree with faces on the limbs as buds.
If you live in a rain area, make rain drops falling on flowers. ¬†Place a name or picture inside each raindrop. ¬†Place a large gray cloud, in the sky, with the drops below it landing on the flowers. ¬†The slogan, raindrops help green things grow.
Finally, you could do a bulletin board of garden tools. ¬†Just place them on your board with a name or picture on them. ¬†It is okay to duplicate the tools. ¬†Businesses need tools to succeed.
A well colored bulletin board shows the importance of each individual in the classroom or office. ¬†It is a great motivational tool to use. ¬†Always look for ideas from others. ¬†Contributions help to build morale.
