- Butcher paper or fabric
- Construction paper in various colors
- Various die cut shapes
- Glue or glue sticks
- Paper cutter or scissors
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. 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. You will also need to cover the bulletin board with butcher paper or fabric.
This bulletin board activity would be great to do as you are teaching shapes, or you can also do it to review the shapes you have already taught. Pass out a “stem” to each student. 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 rain drops to put on the top portion of the bulletin board.

Rainy Day Fun
- Blue butcher paper or fabric
- Student photographs
- Rain drop cut out—one per student (optional)
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 doing things in the rain. Then, 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 to add would be to give each student a rain drop cut out. Then, have them draw a picture or try to write what they are doing in their photographs. This presents a great time to teach your students about rain. You can teach about why rain is important and why we need it.

Talk about what happens during spring. You can even read a book about springtime, such as It's Spring by Linda Glaser. Then, talk about activities that you do during spring. Have students talk about their favorite things to do.
Cover the bulletin board you will be using 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. When they are finished, let them share their paintings with the class. Then, put them on the bulletin board. A wonderful title for this particular preschool bulletin board for spring would be, “Super Springtime Fun.”
