Children love bugs. Butterflies, ladybugs, dragonflies, bumblebees – these creatures fascinate most children. So what better place to use bug-themed decorations than in a schoolroom? Whether you are decorating for preschoolers, a kindergarten class, or a school room at home, these decorations can be a great addition to your school room.
Tips For Decorating A Classroom
When decorating a classroom for preschoolers or kindergärtners, there are several things you can keep in mind to help make the decorations more child friendly. To get the children more involved, you can use their artwork on the walls and let them help decorate. If you wait to put up some of the decorations until the children are there to help, it cam make them feel more involved in the classroom space.
One of the best ways to begin decorating a classroom is with wall decorations. When decorating the walls of your classroom, make sure that the artwork and decorations are hung so the children can see and interact with them easily. You don't want the kids to be overwhelmed by cluttered walls, or have to look up very far from eye-level to see the decorations.
When decorating a kindergarten classroom, you can use craft paper to line the walls and decorate directly on that. This will let you change the theme easily, and the children can help without risk of damage to the walls. Butterflies, dragonflies, ladybugs, bumblebees, and flower decorations can be used in a variety of themes. Garden, jungle, bugs, spring, and summer themes are just a few of the many possibilities.
Decorating A Homeschooling Room
If you're one of the many parents who has chosen to homeschool your children, you might have a room in your house set aside as a classroom. If so, you and your children can have fun decorating your very own schoolroom.
Hanging butterfly decorations and other bugs on the wall can give the room a bright, cheerful feel. These decorations lend themselves well to any outdoor theme, and can help bring the outdoors in, especially in the winter. You can also use wall stickers to personalize the room. Letter stickers can be used to spell out your children's names or a name you might have given your school. Stickers of bugs and blooms can join the three-dimensional insects on the wall, and clouds would look nice decorating the ceiling.
When decorating a schoolroom for children, either at home or in a traditional classroom setting, bug decorations lend a nice touch. Butterflies, dragonflies, and other bugs will compliment many themes, and can be re-used if you decide to change the decorations in your classroom.
