Angry Birds Inspired Elementary Back To School Bulletin Board Idea

Looking for a fresh idea for back to school? Check out this fun Angry Birds themed display from Stephanie of Mrs. Butterfield's First Grade! Featuring characters students are bound to recognize (with a  three-dimensional sling shot made from recycled paper rolls that is super cool!), we know this bulletin board is sure to be a hit!

We're Flying to 2nd Grade!

  • Background: Cover the entire board with blue bulletin board paper. Cover the bottom third of the board with a strip of green bulletin board paper, using scissors to shape the top edge to look like grass.
  • Title: "We're Flying to 2nd Grade!"
  • Border: Complimentary colored trimmer.
  • Decoration: 1) The Sling Shot. Paint recycled paper rolls with brown craft paint, then cut to size and assemble. For the finishing touch, tie a piece of string to the top two pieces. 2) The Block Tower. Provide each of your new kiddos with an index card, inviting them to use the space to complete the prompt, "In second grade, I want to learn...", "In second grade, I'm most excited to...", or another such variation. 'Frame' the index cards with brown construction paper and use the newly created 'blocks' to build a tower. 3) The Characters. Stephanie created the pigs, but let her kiddos use construction paper to create the birds. For the pigs, we suggest simply cutting the shapes from green bulletin board paper, attaching them to the board with a bit of paper/tissue paper stuffing to create a three-dimensional effect, then using green, black, and white construction paper to create the face details. For the birds, Stephanie pre-cut the body shapes from construction paper in the appropriate colors, then provided students with scrap construction paper to decorate their individual cutouts. While her students had likely seen the characters, Stephanie refreshed their memories by projecting pictures of the birds to help them design their characters.
