Sooooo Cute Spring Bulletin Boards!
Each year a pair of teachers are assigned a month to do the cafeteria bulletin boards. We were given April. With all the pressure of upcoming testing and the additional stressor of losing time to snow days, I didn’t have much creativity roaming in my brain. This board started out as me just wanting to make a simple spring flower to cover up lots of space fast and then… the board looked empty so I decided I must add a little lady bug. I made the flower petals from bulletin board paper folded over and over before I cut similar to when making a paper fan. This helped me not have to cut out a LOT of different petals separately. Then the flower and lady bug idea kept growing and growing and growing…
We have an upcoming science fair so we decided to tie in a science theme along with the spring theme. We made a larger lady bug with an investigating magnifying glass over the top for the second bulletin board. A hula hoop wrapped in black paper strips was used to make the magnifying glass. Then laminating film was stretched over the magnifying glass to look similar to glass. Rolled up black bulletin board paper was used to create the handle for the magnifying glass.
We have gotten so many compliments on these boards about how they brighten up the room. These are on either side of the stage in our cafeteria. I hope these help spark an idea for your spring bulletin boards too!
