The Crayon Box That Talked - MLK Day Bulletin Board Ideas

Shane DeRolf's The Crayon Box That Talked is a wonderful book to share with your kiddos on MLK Day! Through beautiful illustration and playful, yet meaningful text, students are reminded that when we all work together - the results are colorful and compelling!

Several bulletin board ideas have emerged that use DeRolf's poem as inspiration. We love how they turned out and think the would provide a bright and meaningful wall display perfect for Martin Luther King Jr Day! Two of the designs have previously been featured on our blog...

This design is from Mrs. Brown's Art Class and was created by a kindergarten class. We love that each kinder got to decorate a crayon for the box! And, of course, that the crayons were added to an adorable crayon box

This design is from April over at Chalk Talk. Again, each student got to design their own crayon for the board and learned that, just like the crayons in a crayon box, their individuality and diversity is something to celebrate!
