I am just loving that classroom door decorations are becoming such a huge thing. I love seeing adorably decorated doors when I drop my kids off at school. It makes school a lot more fun, and my kids always talk about the clever designs their teachers come up with.
But if you don’t have any clue what to do, keep losing the door decorating contest, or simply just sort of hate decorating a door, then you are in the right place.
Here you will not only learn how to decorate a classroom door, but also get inspiration for simple designs you can implement that look complicated, but don’t take much thought or time to create.
Take that competition!
Why Make Classroom Door Decorations?
There are a couple of reasons why I think taking the time to create a classroom door decoration (even if you just make one and leave it up all year) is beneficial.
The classroom can be either boring or intimidating to kids (sometimes both!), and something fun to greet a child walking into school every day is calming for anxiety.
School can get monotonous as well, and having a new door decoration can spice things up and alert kids to upcoming themes and events.
You can also use your classroom decorations to share a bit about your personality with both the students and their parents throughout the year.
