Get inspired for Halloween with these clever science Halloween door decorations for elementary and middle school. It’s the perfect way to join in designing Halloween classroom doors when you are part of the science lab!
One of the best things about teaching science in elementary school is the fact that you get to decorate your classroom door or walls.
All the teachers I know say that decorating their classroom is one of their favorite parts of the job! And personally, I love a highly-decorated classroom as a parent- because decorating teachers tend to be more involved across the board!
If you need new inspiration for your Halloween classroom doors, these science decorating ideas are just what you need to bring a bit of spark back into the STEM classroom.
Although you don’t need science lab decoration ideas to teach STEM activities for kids, it certainly makes your classroom more exciting for kids and you’ll totally win your school’s Halloween door decorating contest (if your school doesn’t do this yet, start it!)
Silly and Spooky Science Halloween Door Decorations
Decorating a classroom door doesn’t have to be complicated, although a lot of schools offer prizes for the best Halloween classroom doors (or you could always start a contest pool with your fellow teachers!).
Although original ideas are a lot of fun, sometimes you won’t have time to come up with a unique Halloween door idea on your own. That’s where we come in!
How to Design a Science Halloween Classroom Door
Most classroom doors are made using various art supplies. Bright green, orange, black, and purple are popular colors at Halloween.
One quick tip is to use pre-made letters. You do NOT want to be spending hours cutting out paper letters. You can always reuse the letters for multiple ideas.
If you can’t use staples, sticky tack or duct tape tends to have the strongest bonding power.
Before heading to the craft store (or Amazon, hello), it helps to sketch out the idea on paper. Then you can use a measuring tape to find out exactly how much of each item you will need so you don’t over-buy.
And the beauty of these doors is that if you are careful, you can use them year after year with just a few touch-ups.
