Bulletin boards can inform, encourage, and motivate children and volunteers. Before you jump in to these new bulletin board ideas, remember these success tips: If you involve children in creating a bulletin board display, they’ll check it out more often. And you can create more interest in a bulletin board by announcing its theme in the monthly newsletter or weekly church bulletin. Try these 10 amazing displays. 10 Easy Bulletin Boards That Are Sure to Capture People’s Interest 1. With Bells On Cut out brightly colored bell shapes and black handles. Punch a hole at the edge of each paper bell, tie a short string, and attach a jingle bell. On each paper bell, write a different way to serve God. Attach magazine pictures of people serving God. 2. Star Teachers Write each teacher’s name on a large paper star. Have children draw a picture, write a story, or create a poem in honor of each teacher. Mount these items on brightly colored paper and place them around the stars. 3. New Bag of Tricks Title this display “Help Us Improve YOUR Sunday School.” Attach a decorated paper bag, pictures of a magician’s hat, magic wand, and rabbit. Provide paper slips and pencils for children to write suggestions for improvement and drop in the bag. 4. It’s a Mystery Place the “It’s a Mystery” title and several question marks on the board. Each week, put up a clue that’ll encourage children to find an answer to the current lesson. Post a clue for each age level, as classes may have different lessons. You can also use this board to lead children through a month of clues that’ll help them discover the answer at the end of the month. 5. Temperature’s Risin’ Cut out a thermometer shape for each class. Write last year’s average attendance for each class at the bottom of its thermometer. Encourage children to invite guests and call others who haven’t been attending. Keep track of visitors on the thermometers. 6. Hug a Teacher Month Put up a heart shape for each teacher. Have teachers mark on their heart each time they get a hug. See the marks add up and watch the excitement and fun mount. 7. Read Any Good Books Lately? Write the names of Bible books on book shapes. Encourage children to read at least one of these entire books. Have children write their names on the correct book shape when they’ve completed the reading. Include younger children by having parents read books to them (from simplified translations). 8. Amazing Facts Using a Bible book of facts or your Bible dictionary or concordance, discover interesting facts to include in this display. List where each item is mentioned in the Bible. For example, “The locust was considered a real treat to eat in Bible times. (Answer found in Leviticus 11:21-22.)” Include pictures of each fact to increase the interest level. Change the fact weekly. 9. Home Improvement Cut out shapes of tools such as hammers and saws. On each tool, write a way to work on our relationship with Jesus, such as “read the Bible,” “pray daily,” or “help others.” On blank tool shapes, have children write ways they work on their relationship with God each week. 10. Blessing Tree Create a large tree shape on a bulletin board. Title the board “Fill Up the Blessing Tree.” Each week, have children write one blessing they learned from the lesson and attach it to a leaf on the tree. Mary Davis is a freelance writer in Iowa.
