Bullying is a largely preventable problem. Why not integrate anti-bullying efforts in your instruction? These ideas for anti-bullying projects and crafts will help you accomplish this goal.


Bullying is an important topic for classroom discussion. Simple discussion doesn't always engage students however. These projects and crafts will do that job with ease.

Bully-Proof Shield

Students who are victimized by bullies often blame themselves and feel bad about themselves.This craft focuses on self empowerment to help make students feel bully-proof.


  • Notebook paper
  • Pens/pencils
  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Tin foil
  • Acrylic paints
  • Paint brushes


  1. Begin by asking students to use the notebook paper and pens/pencils to list a few positive words to describe themselves.
  2. Now, have the students move about the room as they allow their fellow students to add one positive descriptor about them to the list. When this step is finished, each student should have a full list of positive descriptors about themselves.
  3. Now, have each student cut out a shield shape from the cardboard.
  4. Next, have them use the tin foil to cover their shield in armor.
  5. Finally, ask the students to use the acrylic paints to paint the positive words used to describe them all over the shield.

Don't Be A Bully Posters

Bullying is all too common in classrooms, but many students do not even realize that they are doing it. This project gives students a chance to work in teams to create posters designed to deter bullying behaviors.


  • Poster board
  • Markers


  1. Divide students into small groups.
  2. Ask each group to work together to brainstorm ways not to be a bully.
  3. Now, have each group create posters to educate others about bullying.
  4. Have students hang the posters in school hallways.

Being Bullied Feels Like. . .

When a student is victimized by a bully many emotions emerge. This craft enables students to express their feelings through a mask.


  • Paper plates
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Elastic string
  • Paints or markers


  1. Ask students to think about how they have felt while being bullied in the past.
  2. Pass out the paper plates, giving one to each student.
  3. Use the scissors to cut out eyes and and maybe even a mouth on the mask.
  4. Create holes on the mask near the ears with the hole punch.
  5. Recreate the emotion that was experienced during the bullying on the mask using the paints or markers.
  6. Attach the elastic string through the holes punched in the mask.
  7. Optional: Paint another emotion on the flip side of the mask to demonstrate how it feels when no bullying is taking place.
