    Spring Preschool Bulletin Board Ideas Use these preschool bulletin boards for spring to get your classroom ready for spring. You can use one or all three ideas. Each has an educational component such as learning about shapes, learning about rain and learning about the season.

    May Flowers

    Materials

    • Butcher paper or fabric
    • Construction paper in various colors
    • Various die cut shapes
    • Glue or glue sticks
    • Paper cutter or scissors

    Procedure

    Before you complete this springtime bulletin board, you will need to create stems for the flowers using green construction paper. Each student will need one stem. You can do this very easily by cutting green construction paper into ½-inch strips. You will also need to die cut various shapes such as circles, squares or rhombuses that students can use to create their flowers. In addition, you need to cover the bulletin board with butcher paper or fabric.

    This activity would be great to make as you are teaching shapes or to review the shapes you have already taught. Pass out a “stem” to each student and then pass out the die cut shapes and the glue. You can just give an assortment of shapes to each table. Next, have students assemble their flowers.

    When students have finished their flowers, place them on the bulletin board. A wonderful title would be, “April Showers Bring May Flowers.” You can even have your students cut out raindrops to put on the top portion of the bulletin board.

    Rainy Day Fun

    Materials

    • Blue butcher paper or fabric
    • Student photographs
    • Rain drop cut out—one per student (optional)

    Procedure

    Before you make this bulletin board, have students bring in photographs of themselves doing fun things in the rain. You can also take pictures of students in the rain. Cover the bulletin board with the butcher paper or fabric.

    Arrange the photos on the bulletin board. An excellent title would be, “Rainy Day Fun.” Another great option would be to give each student a raindrop cut out. Then, have them draw a picture or try to write what they are doing in their photographs. You can teach about why rain is important and why we need it.

    Cover the bulletin board with fabric or butcher paper. Give each student a piece of finger paint paper or manila paper and some paint. It is up to you if you want to use finger paint or watercolors. Then, have students paint a picture of their favorite thing to do in the springtime.
