Crayon Bulletin Board

Are you a bulletin board lover or hater? I have to admit that because of the placement of mine, I rarely changed them out when I was in the classroom. Whatever I put up in the fall was generally what we used all year long so that I didn't have to climb on countertops all year long to change them. I've got a free crayon bulletin board template for you. It is great for back to school, but you could also use it year round. This could be a bulletin board that you use all year long without having to change much. You could also have your students help you assemble the crayons and add their own names to it. It also could make the PERFECT display bulletin board for student work.

Start by printing out the crayon template on different colors of paper. I would suggest cardstock so that they are a little sturdier. Cut them out along the dotted lines leaving the point on one end.

Write student names in the ovals on each crayon. Students could write these or you could have them all done ahead of time.

Roll the crayon up. I had quite a bit of overlap to get them the size that I wanted. Use this picture as an example, but roll them to the size you'd prefer.

Try to line up the black wavy lines as best as you can. Decide how you want to seal it - glue, tape, staples, etc.

Staples are the easiest, especially if you are going hang these on a bulletin board, so you won't see the backs. I put the staples on the black wavy lines to hide them even more.
And there you have some bright 3-D crayons to use on the bulletin boards! You can display these around the room, but keep reading for an idea for making a bulletin board with them.

You could spread these out on a bulletin board or lining a hallway. At the beginning of they year, put a placeholder that just says awesome work coming soon. Then, throughout the year, add work to display in that spot.

I've also included the templates to spell out "We Are A Bright Bunch," the perfect saying for these bright crayons! Each letter comes one per page, but I've got a little tip for you. If you need the letters smaller, you can adjust that when you print the file. In Adobe, when you hit print, there is a button that says size. That means print it full size. If you click multiple, you can fit multiple letters on a page. Adjust how many you want per page. I did 4 for this example. You can also click if you want it to print a border or not. I clicked the border so that I could save time and just cut out rectangles instead of each letter individually. 

You could also try this printing trick if you want smaller crayons. Just print multiples to a page and you can have mini 3-D crayons to use.
