Ladybug Theme Bulletin Board Ideas

Below are some ladybug theme bulletin board ideas for elementary teachers.

Ladybug Bulletin Board Backgrounds

There are lots of pretty types of ladybug wrapping paper out there. If you are interested in solid color fabric or butcher paper for bulletin board backgrounds, consider using the colors black, red, or green. If you want to take it up a notch, you could have a red background and cover it with black dots (made of paper or simply drawn with a marker).

Ladybug Bulletin Board Trim

8 Ideas for a Ladybug Themed Classroom

  1. Pair with Bee Theme Classroom Decor to create an insect themed classroom. This is especially great for grades that cover insects as a science topic.
  2. Use red paper plates to back round decor like table numbers. Add paper antennas. 
  3. Since red is such a dominant color in a ladybug theme consider using it only as an accent and use black as the main background for bulletin boards. Doing so really makes your theme pop.
  4. The garden area of big box stores often have ladybug items on clearance at the end of the summer just before you go back to school.
  5. Mix in elements of nature such as large cut out leafs and branches.
  6. Flower pots and other garden type items work well with this theme.
  7. Title your student work board, “Good Work Has Been Spotted.”
  8. Set up a display of books that relate to the theme by standing them on a counter or shelf.

The ladybug classroom theme bundle includes BOTH the original version (shown below) and the newly updated version (shown above). In the newer version, we used all new clipart which includes much more diverse characters. Also, we made the entire bundle 100% editable so not only can you customize it with your students’ names and details specific to your classroom, you can now translate EVERYTHING into other languages too. This has long been a request from teachers of ELLs and immersion classrooms. Both versions are available in the Elementary Classroom Decor Collection.
