Owl bulletin board ideas are fun and meanwhile may be a bit scary especially to pre-schoolers. You can create creative bulletin board with this theme and educate students in various aspects.
Create a hoot owl bulletin board to celebrate the autumn season or to coincide with an owl-themed unit. Plan art activities for your pre-schoolers that provide you with homemade owls to use on your bulletin board. Children and visitors can enjoy the artwork proudly hung on clever and creative displays.
Create a bulletin board using your pre-schoolers’ personalized artwork. Trace each child’s hand four times on brown and orange construction paper. Have the children cut out their handprints. Help them glue their handprints together to look like feathers. Place two handprints at the top and two below, with the fingers pointing down. Curl the fingers to make more realistic feathers. Add a brown semicircle on top of the feathers for the owl’s head and have the children use black markers to draw eyes. Print your pre-schoolers’ names under their owls and title your bulletin board “Who’s in Preschool?”
Moreover, you can also create a bulletin board filled with owls made by your pre-schoolers. Provide each child with an owl template to colour. Alternatively, have each child decorate owls with craft feathers. Create a large tree using brown construction paper and attach it to the middle of the bulletin board. Place the children’s owls in and around the tree. Make or purchase letters to place the title “Preschool Is a Hoot” across the top of the bulletin board.
Spooky owl is another great theme. Make use this bulletin board to create a fall scene or as part of a Halloween theme. Cover the bulletin board in dark blue or black paper. Draw or paint a large tree in the centre of the board, with a yellow moon in the background. Have your pre-schoolers trace and cut out simple owl outlines. Print the children’s names on their owls and place them on tree branches. You also can have the children create leaves out of construction paper to place on the tree and ground.
At the beginning of the school year, create a bulletin board to welcome students to your classroom. Line the back of the bulletin board with light blue paper and print out an image of a cartoon owl from Clip Art, or if you’re artistic, draw the owl yourself. Write the title “Who Are You?” on the board. On the first day of school, show the bulletin board to students and explain to them that the friendly owl welcomes them to school and will be seen in the classroom in a variety of ways throughout the year. Tell them that the owl wants to learn about them and that’s the reason why he’s asking “Who Are You?” During the first week of school, conduct an All about Me unit. Take pictures of children and interview them to find out what their favourite colours, foods, toys and books are. Write their answers down and display them and their pictures on the board around the owl.
