Sports Theme Buletin Boards

A sports theme has endless possibilities, and stressing the “teamwork” aspect is a great way to get your students working together all year long. Here’s a collection of ideas to help you get your own sports themed classroom started. Create a sports themed classroom your students will love.


You may do the All-Star Behavior, which is similar to the stop light or card pulling system. The students earn fouls that are posted on their basketball around the room. Use football helmets and penalty flags for 1st down, 2nd down, etc. The job board is a field goal post. Jobs are listen on the uprights. The horizontal bar says “Teamwork.” Use clothespins with the students names to point to their job for the day.


Another ideas is by using large bulletin board that said “Give it your best shot” with a child’s basketball hoop attached to the board. On the board you may put up basketballs with kids’ names. For the class jobs, use the heading “teamwork” and have the jobs written on construction paper baseball bats — the children’s names are written on baseball mitts. For the good work board, use.the heading “Get a Kick out of learning” with a soccor ball border.


There are many other great ideas as per the pictures here. Use all your creativity and knowledge to put up a sporty bulletin boards!


Seasonal Buletin Boards for School

You may design the bulletin board into a seasonal one. For example, a stinkin’ cute is this winter bulletin board {and snowman/woman glyph crafts} that resembles Olaf in Frozen. What a fabulously fun way to herald in the season of snow! To make one, Find various interesting facts about snow to share with your students. First, learn where it comes from/how it’s formed, the uniqueness of snow crystals, etc. Add a little humor if you wish – maybe a funny reminder not to eat yellow snow or how to avoid the cartoon scissor-like-slip-and-fall when encountering slippery patches.




Even bring in a bit of history into it – get stats for the worst snowstorm in your area, bringing in a visual so students can see how high the snow was, etc. Type these various facts up, mount them onto cute patterned scrapbook paper, and display them on the bulletin board – taking time to introduce a new one every day!

For fall, you can do a scarecrow fall bulletin board. Start with a large piece of dark orange bulletin board paper, cutting a hat shape from the paper. The shape doesn’t have to be perfect. In fact, a “lumpy” hat goes right along with the scarecrow “image”! Add a band of lighter orange paper and a sunflower to create visual interest and differentiate the brim from the rest of the hat. The design is super cute, but remember that you can customize the hat as you please! Add a colorful patch somewhere on the hat, use a fall leaf or colorful button cutout instead of a sunflower to decorate the band, etc.



For summer include cutouts like sun, flowers and you may also add cute butterflies and bugs into the bulletin boards for more colourful element.



Buletin Board for Home Ideas

One of the ways we’ve made our home fit our family is by adding a desk in the dining room.  I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it really helps organize papers and mail, both as they come in our home and as they go.  For holidays and parties, we just clear it off and it becomes a sideboard for serving food.  It’s become a mini-office, and a wonderful tool for keeping us organized and taming the avalanche of papers in our life.

You can turn salvaged items, fun crafting supplies, and a little creativity into bulletin boards! Whether you’re looking to get organized, display more photos, or transform a tired corkboard, these ideas are stylish and easy.

Pull out the stops to use salvaged corks for this floral-theme corkboard that is anything by boring. Form the flowers by strategically positioning stained cork ends faceup. Use a deep frame or shadow box to accommodate the depth of the corks. To stain the corks yellow and orange for the flower centers, brush watered-down acrylic paints onto the cork ends.



Bulletin boards are a utilitarian part of most offices, and I knew having one would be incredibly helpful for our family– but very ugly for our dining room.  That’s when it occurred to me I could make my own bulletin board, make it pretty, and do so for about $12.  REALLY.  It’s become one of my favorite things in our home, our beautiful family ‘command center’, sprinkled with important memos and kid produced art and special photos too.



One of the quickest and easiest ways to dress up a bulletin board for the holidays is to decorate the border of the board with a hand-crafted paper holly garland. This is a great project for busy offices that cannot put a lot of time into holiday decor or for homes with small children who need a basic craft project.
