sweet as pumpkin pie classroom bulletin board

Encourage acts of kindness with this interactive Fall inspired bulletin board! Students who display an act of kindness get their name written on the slice of pumpkin pie. Teacher can reward students whose name is on the slice of pie at the end of the week, which encourages students to participate in practicing acts of kindness throughout the school year.
Step 1

Use your the Cricut® Maker to cut out all your pieces for the board. Click here to go directly to the design in Cricut® Design Space™.

TIP: Cut your white poster board down to make your "LEARNING IS" banner.

Step 2 Cover your bulletin board with blue gift wrap to act as your background.

Step 3 Trim outside edges of your bulletin board with pom-pom garland and ribbon to create a border.

Step 4 Use a tape runner to adhere white paper rectangles to the back of each banner flag.

Step 5 Cut two long pieces of baker's twine and thread the "SWEET AS" flags one one and "PUMPKIN PIE" on the other to assemble your banners. Tie a loop on the each end and hang across the center of your bulletin board with thumb tacks.

Step 6 Now, use a tape runner to adhere your white "LEARNING IS" banner in the center of your bulletin board above your banners.

Step 7 Adhere your pumpkins and pie slice in each of the bottom corners of your bulletin board. 

Step 8 Use scissors to cut a piece of transfer tape to fit over the solid part of the pie slice. Peel and stick it over the pie slice on the bulletin board.

TIP: The transfer tape allows you to write students names with dry erase markers and clean off to re-use each week, in lieu of lamination.

Step 9 Finish off the board by making little bows from ribbon to embellish the pumpkins and use a tape runner to attach.

TIP: If needed, secure the bows with a little glue.
