Learning and Growing Themed Spring Bulletin Boards
1. Never Stop Growing
This is a really creative bulletin board idea! Educators can have their class create flowers from the handprints of the children for this Spring Bulletin Board. Easy to make with construction paper – and cute.
2. Growing Flowers By Subject
Flowers are a sure sign Spring is in the air. Inspire an interest in the subjects the children will be learning. Create a 3D effect of flowers with a subject name and activities in the center of each flower.
3. What Plants Need
This spring bulletin board shows the process of flowers growing – and what plants need to thrive. Create sunflowers with sunflower seeds and construction paper. Then write the text applicable to each part of the growing process. Don’t be afraid to improvise and add some clouds and raindrops if you feel like it!
4. When We Learn We Grow
This bulletin board consists of large 3D flowers with school subjects as centers to motivate children to want to learn. Wiring behind the petals helps add to the 3D effect. It’s bright and fun to look at.
5. Lifecycles Butterfly and Frog
Students in primary grades will love these types of bulletin boards. Teachers can demonstrate the lifecycles of the butterfly and frog through the information on the board. The butterfly’s lifecycle is in a tree, and the frog is on a leaf in the pond. It’s a great board for the Spring season.

One of the more simple Spring bulletin boards with a powerful message to inspire students to adapt and to grow in the classroom. Perfect for the season!

Cottonballs and glue – what could go wrong? :)
Yes it can be messy, but you’ve got a handle on that. You are a super-teacher! Using fluffy bunnies gives a nice 3D effect combining Spring and Easter holidays in one bulletin board. Make sure you have soap and water on site for any messes.
