Simple fall tree bulletin board for preschool

in Creative Art, Leaves

My favorite bulletin board displays are the ones where the children’s art work are integrated into the theme of the board.

The two year olds were given some paper leaves, sponges, and some red and yellow paint.

The children sponge painted their leaves with the paint.

Most of the children took their time and explored the mixing of the two colors.

At first they tried to keep their hands on the unpainted part of the leaf as they sponge painted but it wasn’t long before they realized that in order to cover the entire leaf with paint, they were going to have to get some paint on those hands.

After the children were done with their leaves, the leaves were set aside to dry. The teacher will hang them on her tree she made for their classroom bulletin board.

I agree. Displaying the kids’ work is the best use of a bulletin board.

Those leaves are adorable. Would make a very cute bulletin board.

We have done this a few times, but I hadn’t thought to add a tree to the display. Love that idea!

I love it – the idea definitely has room for lots of creativity! It is fun when others do things like this in other ways:)
