Preschool, Kindergarten, and Elementary Owl Themed Back To School Bulletin Board Idea

Third grade teacher, Sandie McLaughlin, created this adorably colorful owl themed welcome board for back-to-school and, if you're thinking about doing an owl theme of your own this year, we think this would make a lovely addition to your decor! Not only do we love the mix of bright, welcoming colors, the three dimensional tree also offers a unique and fun twist to the design!

Look Hooo's in 3rd Grade!

  • Background: Yellow bulletin board paper.
  • Title: "Look Hooo's in 3rd Grade!"
  • Border: Use an owl themed bulletin board and a complimentary solid color trimmer to create a layered look.
  • Decoration: 1) The Tree. How fun is this tree?! To create your own, you'll need a large piece of brown bulletin board paper. We suggest starting with a piece cut like the diagram below;Paper-Tree-TutorialOnce cut, start by scrunching the large selection at the bottom to create the trunk, then scrunching/twisting each of the five sections at the top to create the branches. [NOTE: This may or may not result in a tree that is a full as you would like. If it needs a bit more 'oomph', simply cut smaller strips of brown paper, scrunch/twist the new sections, and arrange them alongside the original tree shape.] Find a simple leaf pattern to print onto green construction paper (we like that Sandie used several shades of green), the cut the shapes apart and arrange them on the branches. 2) The Owls. While you can certainly purchase owl cutouts like Sandie did, creating your own is an option too! We stumbled across some super cute templates a while back and shared them on this post if you're interested! All you would need is some vibrant card stock and/or fun patterned scrapbook paper! Whatever you choose, print the names of your new students onto the cutouts and arrange them around the tree/board.
