Monsters Theme Bulletin Board Ideas

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

Monsters Bulletin Board Backgrounds

Consider using faux fur in bright colors as bulletin board backgrounds to create a fun textured look. If you would rather keep it simple and use solid color fabric or butcher paper for your bulletin board backgrounds, we recommend going with a bright assortment of colors or sticking with more neutral tones. Having neutral tones gives you more flexibility with decorating them.

Monsters Bulletin Board Trim

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.
