St. Patrick's Day Bulletin Boards

We've been gearing up for St. Patrick's Day, getting our bulletin boards ready to display all the wonderful masterpieces the kids have been coming up with. I often use the caption "Pre-K Lucky Charms" or "Mrs. Ayn's Lucky Charms" but since a few other classes went with that this year before I got my caption up, we went with "Pre-K is magically Delicious!".

We added a few tie-dyed coffee filter and collage art shamrocks for detail. Some of the children were folding coffee filters and using watercolors to paint them. Others used markers to color the coffee filters and then sprayed them with a water bottle. This has become quite a popular activity in art area ever since the introduction of the marker/spray bottle technique was introduced. I'm sure it has more to do with the fun factor of using the water bottle than the final effect, but either way, they do come out pretty! After the filters had dried, I cut some of them into the shamrock shape. (We tried to let the kids do it, but the filters don't cut very well with kids scissors.)

Also available in our art center is a wide variety of collage materials and some shamrock cut outs. Since our kids LOVE glue, this is another popular art activity.

This is our door decoration.

I frequently visit other classrooms and see what they are up to. Here are some of the bulletin boards that other teachers in our center have up for St. Patrick's Day.

Thanks for visiting! Leave a little "comment love"~I'd love for you to share your thoughts!  


  1. Here is my St. Paddy's BB - I love making bulletin boards! :)

    1. I wish I had time to do more. Most of our boards are eventually completely covered in art, but I still like to change some of them out to match the season! Thanks for commenting and sharing your post, Leeanne! :))
