I have a bit of a problem when it comes to creating a Welcome bulletin board each fall for my kinder friends. I don’t really have a traditional bulletin board. I have this series of long windows that face into the hall outside my room. That’s my bulletin board. And . . . it’s a HUGE pain to work around. A few years ago, I covered some insulation board with white fabric and velcroed them in front of the windows so that, at the very least, you wouldn’t have to see the back side of the cupboards that were put in front of them in my classroom. But it is always a HUGE struggle to find something that can cover such a HUGE area. But this year . . . I think I came up with a MONSTEROUSLY good idea to get the job done. (Yes, I know MONSTEROUSLY is actually MONSTROUSLY but it’s a play on words . . . you’ll see.)
And here’s the best part . . . it was easy and cheap!
All you need is:
- Your favorite Astrobrights Colored Cardstock
- Letter Banners
Just print off the letter banners which you can find at the end of this post and decide how you’d like to post them. I used twine and colorful little clothes pins.
And then, there’s just the task of making some monsters. I kept it really simple. Use the pages in full-size or cut them down.
Cut a mouth . . .
and add some eyes . . . or one eye . . .
and monsters need a couple of teeth at least.
And there it is. . .
It’s easy enough that your littles could even make them up.
My boys helped me make these.
And then we just made enough to have a whole gang to welcome my kinder friends when they arrive for open house next week.
What do you think? If you’d like the letter banner for “Pre-K Is Monsterously Fun!” or “Kindergarten Is . . .” or “First Grade Is . . .” or “School Is . . .” then just click on the button below. Don’t worry! You can spell it MONSTROUSLY if the monster is really bugging you.
