The extra sunshine and fresh air of spring are uplifting for adults and kids alike, so why not let the positive energy of spring influence your classroom decor? From blooming buds to baby animals, here are a few spring-inspired classroom decor ideas for you and your students to try. You're sure to love the laughs that come along with creating something so imaginative and beautiful together.
Flower fences: Transform boring walls in the classroom or hallways into lovely spring gardens, white picket fence and all. Use wood or craft paper to create the fence and then have students help make the blooms. A fun way to make those colorful blossoms is to have kids trace their hands on construction paper. Cut out the prints and then use these as the flower petals.
Rainbow walls: Rain, rain, go away, we want to go outside and play! April showers have their upside when followed by a rainbow and vibrant May flowers. This too-cute wall is the perfect reminder that sunny days are on their way. Teach kids about counting as they help create the colorful chains that make up the rainbow on this display.
Swing into spring: Embrace the change of seasons by swinging right into it. This classroom display features one of kids' favorite activities: swinging. Teachers can help create the background and tree while students can add the fun details, such as flowers, butterflies and ladybugs.
Look who's blooming: This adorable door theme is the perfect spring greeting as students walk through the classroom door. What's more, they'll be proud to point out their own pictures since you use their portraits as the heads of each flower. What a great way to foster classroom unity!
Sunny days ahead: This striking bulletin board is more than just pretty; this work of art is a great learning lesson about colors. Teach students about the many hues of the rainbow and help them understand the science behind everyone's favorite sky phenomenon as you create this stunning classroom focal point.
