Bulletin boards make great additions to preschool classrooms. They are a creative way to celebrate holidays, seasons or whatever else is important to the class. Summertime provide lots of ideas for a unique bulletin board such as a beach theme or a fun in the sun theme. A summer-themed bulletin board is an exciting way to let the kids know that summer is here.
Picnics are a summertime pastime. Cover the bulletin board with red and white gingham paper to resemble a picnic blanket. Create a picnic basket and picnic food out of construction paper. Let each child make an ant to place on the bulletin board. Line up the ants and have them holding a sign of the classroom name or the child's name.
Taste of Summer
Creating a taste-of-summer bulletin board helps the kids learn about healthy fruits and vegetables that grow in the summer. Make woven baskets out of strips of brown construction paper and tape them to the bulletin board. Let the kids create summer fruits and vegetables such as strawberries, zucchini, peppers and blueberries out of construction paper. Fill the baskets with the fruit and vegetables. To make the fruits and vegetables look realistic, choose craft papers and fabrics with similar textures. For example, brown felt works well for making kiwifruit.
Visions of Summer
A visions-of-summer bulletin board captures everything related to summer. The kids can help design the bulletin board by creating something to place on the board. Items to place on the bulletin board can be sand buckets, flip-flops, a barbecue grill, watermelon, bathing suits and anything else that captures the feel of summer.
Stepping Into Summer
A stepping-into-summer bulletin board theme can be created using the footprints of the kids in the classroom. Use a tan background to represent sand or create blades of grass with green construction paper. To create footprints, paint the bottom of the children's bare feet with nontoxic craft paint. Press their feet onto the paper background before it's placed on the wall. Having the bulletin board resemble a pool is also a great idea when using footprints. If using the pool theme, create a few beach balls and pool noodles out of construction paper to accent the theme. Set up a foot-washing station for kids after they're done.
