Do You Need An April Bulletin Board Idea?

I was assigned the duty of doing one of our cafeteria bulletin boards this month, so with lots of thought I decided on the title  “Right Answers Keep Falling on My Head”.  This  title came as a marriage of an April rain showers theme and a testing theme–the spring state testing is a huge deal at my school.  I used a math font that creates testing bubbles so that I could put test bubbles inside the rain drops.  I double spaced these and just cut the drops out free-handed.  I used bulletin board paper to create the umbrella which I sketched out free-handed.  Next I wanted to put the back of a little girls head on the bottom so the rain drops could actually be falling on a child’s head.  We have a predominately African American student population, so I tried to mimic the cute, twisty ponytails that the girls wear.  I took black yarn and wrapped it around a piece of circular cut cardboard for the girls head. To create the ponytails, I wrapped yarn around the top of a copy paper box.  Then I tied it off so it would go around the circular cardboard.  Next, I cut the ends of the huge yarn loop that I had wrapped around the box lid so that they would be loose to twist like braids.   Finally, I braided/twisted the yarn to look like little twisty braids and finished them off with yellow bows.  I hope this will spark an idea for you to use!
