WHY CHOOSE A FAIRY TALE CLASSROOM THEME

A fairy tale classroom theme is colorful and whimsical, just like the stories included in this genre.

Teachers love this theme because they have the flexibility to choose if they want to create a nature-inspired learning environment with a setting in a forest with flowers and lots of sunshine or one that has a more modern feel with watercolor or pastel colors. They can customize it to what they envision for their classroom!

This theme works for both lower and upper elementary students.

BULLETIN BOARD IDEAS

BULLETIN BOARD BACKGROUNDS

If you prefer solid color fabric or butcher paper for bulletin board backgrounds, consider using the neutral colors black, tan, white, or brown so you can add colorful elements to it. You could also go bold and use colors like pink, purple or orange. It all depends on the feel you want in your classroom!

BULLETIN BOARD TRIM

  • braided yellow yarn to look like a Rapunzel braid
  • plastic magic wands hot glued to a basic bulletin board trim
  • strips of stone paper
  • sponge paint bricks
  • glue glitter on a basic bulletin board trim
  • printed book covers from fairytales

BULLETIN BOARD TITLES

  • “Once Upon a Time There Was a (Grade) Class”
  • “Mirror Mirror on the Wall, Learning can be Fun for All”
  • “The Story Begins in (Grade)”
  • “Happily Ever After Starts Here”
  • When creating your own titles, use words like story, magic, or wish.

OTHER IDEAS FOR A SCHOOL CLASSROOM THEME

  • Take pictures of each student wearing a crown. Display them in the classroom.
  • Use grey paint and a kitchen sponge to sponge paint “bricks” onto a bulletin board or cardboard box to create a custom look or cozy reading spot.
  • Twist green butcher paper and hang from the ceiling to the floor to create a beanstalk.
  • Repurpose a crib mattress or use a twin size mattress to create a “Princess and the Pea” reading corner.
  • Attach a full length mirror (the ones available in the back-to-school college section of stores are shatterproof). Attach a sign reading, “Mirror Mirror on the Wall There’s a Role Model in us All.” 
  • As a back-to-school project, have each student design a crest to display.
  • Have students draw self-portraits of themselves as princes and princesses.
  • Set up a display of books that relate to the theme by standing them on a counter or shelf.
