I have been making some really fun bulletin boards with my Cricut! This winter I had a snow bulletin that had my kids doing all of the things they enjoy doing in the snow! There were ice skaters, snowball fights, and kiddos making snow angels! It was something I had found on Pinterest..I am sure you are shocked! This one, however, was my idea! At the beginning of April, I knew that I wanted to use my Cricut to make a cute spring scene. Things had just been super crazy and I hadn’t had time to sit down and figure out what I was going to do with it.
April 1st came out of nowhere so I decided to make it a working piece! This was my lazy way of not having to get it all put up right away with everything going on. It actually turned out really cute and I am glad that I did it that way! I had each one of the second grade teachers pose for me as if they were holding an umbrella. I printed us off in 8×10 pictures and cut out our bodies. Then I just whipped up four beautiful umbrellas with my Cricut along with the words and some raindrops. The rest was pretty easy, in fact I ended up reusing the snow from my winter bulletin for the clouds and switched the snow out for some green grass and left the blue sky up! I was pretty impressed with my “up”cycling and saving some paper in the process!
On May 1st my second grade class magically appeared! The other classes will be sprouting up as well…Pictures to come!
I plan on doing more bulletins like this next year! I have a feeling my classroom is going to “get Cricut-ed” this summer! The kids love seeing their pictures up on the board. I am going to have to start brainstorming a good one for the beginning of school next year…
