Falling for All Things Fall - Autumn Bulletin Board Idea

Fall Preschool Bulletin Board Idea

The toddler teachers at McKinley Early Childhood love getting their kiddos involved in the decoration process. This simple fall bulletin board, with adorable hand print leaves, makes a perfect backdrop for the entire season - just think of the pumpkins, scarecrows, corn stalks, and all the other fun fall items you can add along the way!

Fall Bulletin Board

  • Background: Sky blue bulletin board paper.
  • Title: "It's Harvest Time!", "FALL-ing Into Fall", etc.
  • Border: None needed.
  • Decoration: 1) The Tree. Freehand the tree cutout onto a piece of brown background paper or find a clip art image online to enlarge and trace using your classroom projector system. Arrange the tree on the left side of the bulletin board with its branches pointing toward the right. 2) The Leaves. Find a leaf template online, printing it onto colored card stock or creating a template to use to trace and cut leaves from construction paper/card stock. For fun, invite your kiddos to dip their hand in paint and carefully press it to a leaf cutout in order to create a print. Place the leaves on the tree branches and "eddying" down toward the bottom of the board.

As the season progresses, add other elements {perhaps some student crafts!} to fill up the board!
