Door Decorating Ideas That Say No to Drugs


Many schools, eager to keep their students on the straight and narrow, remind students time and time again to say no to drugs. One effective way to drive this point home is to create school decorations to remind students of this important message. Transform your classroom door into a meaningful message conveyor by decorating it with a "Say no to drugs" theme, reminding your students each time they enter your room that they have the ability to shape their futures through good choices.

Student Pledge Door

  • Encourage students to swear-off drugs by creating a student pledge door. Create an “I will say no to drugs…” pledge for your students to read and sign. Copy this pledge onto slips of red paper, aligning it with the red ribbon theme normally associated with drug prevention programs, or place it on white paper and allow students to decorate them. Ask students to sign them if they wish, promising to steer clear of these temptations. Plaster these pledges on your door to decorate it and show all of your students just how many of them have already committed to living a drug-free life.

I Say No Because...

  • Allow students to share their reasons for avoiding drugs by creating an "I say no because…" door. To prepare for this door design, cover your entire door with butcher paper. Write “I say no because…” across the top of the door in bold letters. Arm your students with crayons or markers and allow them each to cover the door with pictures and explanations of their reasons for avoiding drugs. Some students may say that they are going to avoid drugs because they want a bright future, while others might cite their parents or other family members as the reasons they want to avoid the temptation of drugs.

Drug Facts Hallway Door Theme

  • Use education to keep kids off drugs by joining with other teachers to create a drug facts-themed hallway. To prepare this hallway, assign each teacher a different dangerous drug to feature on her door. Ask each teacher to gather information on the assigned drug and decorate her door with this information. Each door should include attention-getting images, a definition of the drug type, and explanation about the serious dangers associated with using that drug.

Say No With Statistics Door

  • Use drug addiction and death statistics to drive the point that drugs are a bad choice home to your students. To create this door, enlist student help, asking them to research statistics related to drugs. Type up the gathered statistics, print them on large sheets of paper and attach them to the door. To dress up the door a bit more, use a large sheet of red paper to create a red-ribbon and place it in the center of the door, tying your decoration to the red-ribbon, say-no-to-drugs campaign.
