Can I get some ideas how to decorate a classroom door with 'Winter' as the theme?

I have been told to use diecuts of snow flakes, penguins and polar bears

  • You should totally get some pillow stuffing and glue it down to poster board to make a snowy hill scene. Then, make a little sled out of popsickle sticks, paint it, and glue it down to the snow. Put a penguin on the sled if you want. Don't forget to make a snow man (or better yet, make the polar bears building the snow man). For the top of the door you can do snowy clouds or use some more poster board to make icicles (glitter them up!). Have fun!

  • spray deodorant makes great snow on glass. make sure to do it at the end of the day; the smell will wear off by morning.

  • If you would like to put some nice designs and expressions... you could go to http://rose.uppercaseliving.net

    You can customize your own expression if you like and this does not damage the doors or paint. All expressions are vinyl. You simply peel them off when you are through. THere are great expressions for the classroom too!

  • I remember in 6th grade my teacher had us help her out. Does your door have like an "inlet"? We got some of the huge rolls of white paper from the resource room and she took an overhead projector with pictures of polar bears, penguins, etc. And we traced them onto the paper. Then we made fake icicles with our leftover paper and made a sort of "cave" out of the little inlet. It was SO MUCH FUN!!!!

  • Defintiely let the kids help. Do the old fashioned homemade snowflakes. A sheet of paper folded in half and halved again, let them cut points around the edges and holes in their own patterns. Unfolded they each have their own unique snowflake. You get a nature lesson and a craft session in the same day!
