Do you need ideas for bulletin boards? I have you covered!
If you join me here very often you know I love three things- STEM, Reading, and…
That’s right. I love creating bulletin board displays. Here are some of my latest creations!

Those little square boards are just too much fun!
Now, before we get too far into the story behind my new boards, let’s take a look at some previous wonders I made!
The Science Octopus
This one was made using just loops of paper and I had kids make the loops, so that made it easy. I cut the letters with a die-cut machine so the font was rather boring. The arms of the octopus are holding science tools.
This one was so fun to make. The diver is cut from a large garbage bag. I had a student lay down on the bag and I traced around him and then cut it out! The seaweed strands each have an end-of-the-year event written on them and this was our countdown board one year!
The Mad Scientist
This was our absolute favorite one and I made it twice. The first board had a lot of piping and was labeled “Mad Science”. When I took it down I recreated it into the above board. You can read more about this one in two places:
Those boards above are really spectacular, but it took a while to make them. So, I finally came up with a solution to make this process easier for me! Two things:
- Templates for the letters
- Colorful printed illustrations
You can make these, too! Take a look!
The template includes the letters in two sizes. I also included an illustrated poster to show one way the board can be set up. All you have to add is your own border, some cute things like a pom-pom garland, and maybe the atom I created. It is just made of string and pom-poms!
All you have to do is decide what color of paper you want the letters on, print them, and cut them out. I would use card stock and laminate them so you can reuse the letters another day! This board has some beakers added to it and those are included in this resource. I added some bubbles to the beakers- just construction paper circles. You can also check the party section at Target for honeycomb shapes.
Don’t you love the bright colors of this one? The bright border attracts so much attention so I didn’t add a lot of embellishments to this one. (Target again) The test tubes come in the resource.
To create that double-letter effect you just cut out the letters in two colors and staple them on top of one another.
We also love this one! The superhero words are included, but I added the spiky shapes at the bottom. Just cut a circle and then cut out random spikes. Use your scrap box for this!
I am telling you, folks… I love making bulletin boards, but I also love having extra time. So these ready-to-make boards are a lifesaver! Just print, cut, staple, and enjoy!
