Mother’s Day Bulletin Board Ideas

Bulletin boards are such an important component of a classroom’s atmosphere. Celebrate Mother’s Day with creative and colorful bulletin boards that focus on reveling what children love about their moms. Students love to help with decorating, so encourage children to get involved with elements of the display.


Here are a few simple and inexpensive bulletin boards to create:

I Love You A Bunch, Mom!
This is a cute bulletin board idea with a grape theme. For this bulletin board you will need to create a grape vine and grape leaves out of green construction paper. You will also need a small photo of each child’s face. Cover the bulletin board with any color fabric or paper.  Next, create the grapes by cutting out large purple circles and gluing a picture of the face of each child on each one. Then attach the grapes in a large grape cluster. Finally, add the grape vine and leaves and title the bulletin board “We love you Bunches, Mom”!

Mother’s Day Handprints
Cover a bulletin board with pastel colored paper and add a contrasting border. Next, children can trace their handprint on coordinating colored construction paper, cut it out, and write their name on the center. Secure the handprints to the bulletin board. Finally, add this charming mother’s day poem:
 I miss you when we're not together
I'm growing up so fast
See how big I've gotten
Since you saw me last?
As I grow, I'll change a lot,
The years will fly right by.
You'll wonder how I grew so quick
When and where and why?
So look upon these handprints
That are hanging on the wall.
And memories will come back of me,
When I was very small.

We’re Blossoming!
Create a large tree with leaves and secure them to a bulletin board covered in the fabric of your choice. Ask each child to think about the wonderful qualities their mothers possess. Next, each child will cut a flower blossom shape out of construction paper. Then, ask each child to write their name and one word to describe something positive about their mother, such as caring, loving, or organized. Add the children’s blossoms to the tree. Add the slogan, “We Have Blossomed because of Your Care”.
