Back to School Bulletin Board Ideas

Bulletin boards are such an important component of a classroom’s atmosphere. Welcome students back to school with creative back to school bulletin boards. Students love to help with decorating, so encourage children to get involved with elements of the display. Here are a few simple and inexpensive ideas for classroom back to school bulletin boards.


Back to School Bulletin Board: Flying into a New School Year
For this bulletin board, each student can color and embellish a hot air balloon from construction paper. Attach the balloons to a blue background. Add the name and picture of each child to the basket of their hot air balloon.  Students can help decorate the bulletin board with clouds and flying birds. Label the bulletin board “Flying into a School New Year”.  

Back to School Bulletin Board: Bright and Shining Stars
Cut out a vibrant yellow star for each student from poster board or other sturdy paper. Add a child's picture and name to each star. Attach the stars to a dark blue background. Then, use glitter letters  to create the title: “ Class X’s Bright and Shining Stars", substituting your class name for the X.  

Back to School Bulletin Board: Fall Back to School
Draw and paint or color a large tree with falling leaves in brown, gold, red, and green colors.  Attach a picture of each child on the leaves and write the child’s name on each leaf. Title the bulletin board: “Fall Back to School”.
