I've searched high and low for a great February bulletin board idea. Can anyone help me? I'm willing to do any theme (Chinese New Year, Valentine's Day, Presidents, etc.). Many thanks!

Have a look here:

Valentine Bulletin Boards:

Class in a Box
Cut out a large heart out of paper. Decorate the heart to resemble a valentine box of candy. Have each child create a small picture of themselves. Glue each of your children's pictures in the heart (lined up like the candy) and write their name below their picture. You can title this board "One Sweet Box," "Class in a Box," "My Sweeties," "Our Assorted Sweeties," etc.

Give your children heart shaped sponges to paint with. Let them all create on one big piece of paper (one that will fit on the board) Next, ask the children who they love and write this randomly on the bulletin board

Simple, yet functional, Valentine Holders inspired by Ms Ross (pictured)
Students get two pieces of 12x18" red construction paper and a half heart pattern. They fold the red paper in half and trace the half heart with the straight line on the fold. They cut out the hearts and set them aside. You can do a lesson on symmetry when making the hearts.

Next, the students get a 12x18" piece of brown construction paper and trace a bear pattern.( Find a coloring page online) They use pink constuction paper to make a heart nose and the inside of the ears. They draw a face on their bear and glue it on top of one heart. Staple the other heart on top, leaving an opening to put the Valentines in. I write their name in large letters on the front of the heart so it is easy to deliver Valentines. The students LOVE this bulletin board.

Maps of their hearts...

I heard this idea at a recent writing conference. Use the book My Map Book and show children the picture with the map of the child's heart. Have children brainstorm things that are important to them. Draw a heart on a regular size sheet of paper and divide it into sections to accommodate all the important things. We just did this today and they turned out pretty well. It also worked well since we're moving into our geography unit next week. I hope it made sense. I can try and take a picture of some samples if you need them.

I'm always looking for new BB ideas as I don't like doing the same things each year. This year I had my class make cute pigs ("HOGS") with different shape hearts....2 pink hearts turned upside down and glued one on top of the other form the head and body, two smaller pink hearts form the ears, two little red hearts get glued down to form rosy cheeks, a pink snout, and a set of eyes. It's kinda hard to explain...if you want I could probably manage to take a picture sometime next week. I also made, on my own, small Hershey's kisses. I found a candy kiss pattern, copied it, and traced several on poster board. Then after cutting them out, I covered them with crinkled aluminum foil and attached a small piece of white paper coming out the top. I titled my BB "Hogs and Kisses". It turned out cute and the kids really seemed to like it. Let me know if you'd like a picture of this idea.
