Easter Bulletin Board Ideas

Instructor: Melinda Santos
Creating an attractive Easter bulletin board can be fun and easy. Choose from one of the fun themes listed below or mix and match to design your own unique creation.

Easter Bunny-Themed Bulletin Boards

  • Hop Into a Good Book: Appropriate for both Easter and a reading corner, this bulletin board theme can include a large bunny hopping over green hills with Easter eggs scattered over them. You can include the titles for age-appropriate books about Easter or rabbits on the Easter eggs. You might also include titles of books that will be read during story time, or new books that will be offered in the reading corner for the month. You can find a helpful lesson on evaluating chapter and picture books for your classroom on Study.com.
  • Welcome Every Bunny: This board can include a large Easter bunny cutout with the phrase, Welcome Every Bunny! in large letters at the top. Surround the Easter bunny with large Easter egg cutouts each student has colored or painted. Include each student's name on their egg in decorative writing.
  • Hoppy Thoughts: Give each student a large and a small paper plate and have them paint both the same color. Once dry, staple the small plate on top of the large plate to create the head and body of an Easter bunny. Give the students construction paper to cut out arms, legs, ears and whiskers. Glue or staple each piece to the paper plate body. Have students draw the eyes and nose and add a cotton ball to the bottom for a tail. Give students a circular piece of white paper that will be the 'tummy,' and ask them to write a paragraph about their favorite part of Easter. Glue the paragraphs onto the bunny tummies and hang them on a bulletin board with the heading, Hoppy Thoughts.

Spring-Themed Easter Bulletin Boards

  • Hop Into Spring: Combine Spring and Easter onto one bulletin board by displaying a large tree with green leaves, sprouting pink flower buds, grass, hopping bunnies, baby chicks, etc. Include the phrase Hop into Spring. This bulletin board can lead into a lesson about mammals, where you can illustrate the differences between baby rabbits (mammals) and baby chicks (non-mammals).
  • Handprint Flowers: Paint green grass at the bottom of a white paper-covered bulletin board. Add flower stems and leaves, then allow students to dip their hands in paint and create the flower 'petals' using their handprints. Add other scenery including the sun, clouds, butterflies and bunnies. You can even add some hidden Easter eggs in the painted grass. Include the phrase Blossoming into Spring, or Happy Easter, Happy Spring, Happy Happy Everything! While having students create the springtime bulletin board, take the opportunity to introduce a lesson about the life cycle of plants.

Religious Easter-Themed Bulletin Boards

  • Easter Cross: Decorate a bulletin board with a large brown cross with the word Easter spelled vertically. For each letter of the word Easter, include a phrase about Jesus dying, rising from the dead and redeeming. For example: Use the E in Easter to write Jesus Died, the A for was buried, the S for and rose from, the T for the, the E for dead to and the R for redeem us. Paint lilies at the bottom or use cutouts. For a quick refresher, view this life of Christ lesson to review the events leading up to and after Christ's death.
  • Jesus Lives: Cover the bulletin board with sky blue paper and decorate it with the sun, a rainbow, clouds, grass and a cross on a hill surrounded by lilies. Incorporate student art work by having them create sheep using black construction paper handprints with cotton balls. Add the phrase, Jesus Lives or Jesus has Risen to the top of the board. You can use an engaging video about Jesus of Nazareth to provide an overview of his teachings and the impact of his death.
