Here are some creative ideas that are easy to make, and the kids will really love them.

Spring Bulletin Board Ideas

» Spring Poem

Spring is coming, spring is coming,
Birdies, build your nest,
Weave together straw and feather,
Doing each your best.

Spring is coming, spring is coming,
Flowers are coming too,
Pansies, lilies, daffodillies,
Now are coming through.

Spring is coming, Spring is coming,
All around is fair;
Shimmer and quiver on the river,
Joy is everywhere.


Spring is a season that everyone loves. The most attractive elements of this season are beautifully bloomed flowers, green grass, warm sun, and happy birds. If you are planning to make a bulletin board with the spring theme, here are some ideas. The above poem describes spring the best. Try using this poem for a spring bulletin board.

» Flower Power

Flowers, flowers, and more flowers! That's what spring is all about! For making bulletin boards for kindergarten kids based on the spring theme, one way is to decorate the board by pasting different types of flowers on it, that are cut out of various vibrant colored papers. Use a green or yellow bulletin board paper for the background so that all the colorful decorations, especially the flowers that you paste on the board, appear bright and highlighted. You can decorate the border of the bulletin board by making paper flowers, especially pink or red tulips. If you don't want to make flowers out of papers, just cut them out from colored card sheets.

Now, for the main part of the bulletin board, you can cut out a tree from a paper and stick it on the extreme left of the bulletin board, or you can even draw the tree on your own. Color the tree with poster paints (shades of green for the leaves and tones of brown for the bark). Let the leaves of the tree be dark green in color if you have chosen your bulletin board background as green. If you have chosen yellow, color the tree with a lighter shade of green (you can also choose shades and tones of green). On every leaf, you can write the name of each boy from your class.

On the extreme right, you can stick a small hut and give it the name of your kindergarten school. For the hut, you can cut it out from a card sheet, or draw it. Here you can be a little creative. You can paste coconut coir (middle fibrous part of the coconut) on the roof of the hut, to give it a real look, and paint the rest of the hut. In between the tree and hut, paste grass blades cut out from green-colored papers, and small flowering plants. On each flower, you can write the names of the girls in your class. Cut out small beetles, lady bugs, and paste them on the tip of the flowers. On the rest of the bulletin board, paste blue clouds, sun, birds, etc. This is a very creative spring bulletin board idea for kindergarten children.

» Fruits and Veggies

You can choose to make a vegetable garden out of vegetables grown in spring. Start by cutting out carrots, radishes, tomatoes, and other vegetables that grow in spring. Make sure you show a variety of vegetables; so that it does not look like a particular vegetable garden/farm.

Select a background of your choice. Place one tree on each side of the board (here also you can either cut out tree shapes and paste them or draw them). Then cut out fruits and paste them on the trees. Make the trees as mentioned above. But this time, do not cut out the leaves. Rather, you can paint the whole tree. For example, make one an apple tree, and the other an orange tree (or you can choose any fruit of your choice). Cut out a basket from a card sheet, and paste besides each tree, and then paste fruits in them. Write the name of your class students in the fruits.

Winter Bulletin Board Ideas

» Mr. Snowman and Mr. Santa

On the extreme left of the paper, cut out a snowman from a bright white card sheet. For the eyes, paste black-colored ping-pong balls. For the nose, get an ice-cream cone and paste. For the snowman's scarf, try to get a scarf, and show that it is actually wrapped around his neck. And for the hat, place an actual cap/hat. Fill the border with cotton.

To the extreme right, make an igloo with an Eskimo standing next to the igloo. In between the snowman and the Eskimo you can draw a string from the snowman's hand to the Eskimos' hand (show as if both are holding the string). On this string, you can hang gloves and fish that are cut out from paper. On each fish and glove, ask the children to draw or scribble something, and write their names on it. You can have two or more such strings.

» Bulletin Board Ideas for Christmas

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air

What a bright time! It's the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh

Giddy-up jingle horse
pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet
That's the jingle bell
That's the jingle bell
That's the jingle bell rock


» Christmas Tree

What's a Christmas without a Christmas tree? Choose a black background for your bulletin board, and paste a Christmas tree that is cut out from a card sheet, on the extreme left. Gather some match boxes (with the match sticks removed) and cover them with gift wrapping papers. Cover these little boxes such that they look like gift boxes. Stick them below the Christmas tree. On the extreme right, you can stick a cute picture of Santa, or even draw a Santa, and color on your own.

» All in One

On a black background bulletin board, stick everything that is related to Christmas like wreaths, jingle bells, Santa, Christmas tree, sledge, reindeers, cotton as snow, etc. You need to plan well how to, and where to stick these decorations. Make the bulletin board creative, you can also write the Christmas song mentioned above on the board.

Bulletin Board Ideas for Fall

» Maple Tree

Maple tree looks the best in fall. What you can do is, cut out a barren tree, and paint this tree black. Choose a blue bulletin board background, paste this tree in the center. Cut out maple leaves from an orange and yellow card sheet. Now ask every child to apply glue at the back of the maple leaf and paste it on the barren tree on the bulletin board. In this way, paste all the leaves. Show some leaves fallen on the ground. In the remaining area of the bulletin board, you can stick few drawings, paper coloring, other designs, etc. For the border, stick real maple leaves. You can also write the names of students on each leaf.

» Leaf

If you want your bulletin board to look unique, you can cut out the bulletin board into the shape of a maple leaf. This is one of the most interesting and coolest ideas for fall. Instead of painting or cutting this shape out of color paper, you can cut it out from a white paper, and make the children color this big leaf in orange and yellow. Later, you can stick drawings done by your class children or any other designs.

Apart from the above ideas, you can also come up with some of your own. All you need to do is think a little out of the box, and make the best use of your creativity. All the best!
