PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: What's Brewing? (Halloween)

Category: Holiday-Halloween

Suggested Grade Level: All

Materials: Black paper cauldrons, green ovals and bubbles, tissue paper for the fire, yellow moon, bats. I also used a black cat and felt spiders I found at a local store.


This was used during the month of October to go along with the holiday theme, but also let my students know what would be covered during PE throughout the year. We use the SPARK PE Program, so I used "skills practice" and "fitness activities" (categories in the pots) to show what was brewing. The bubbles listed some topics in each category that we will cover.

My students were able to pick out some of the things that we had already done this year and were curious about some of the other activities that were listed.

I used purple bulletin board paper for the background, black cauldrons, yellow moon, lime green bubbles and ovals, and tissue paper for the fire. I added a black cat and felt spiders on the sides and Halloween lights around the border to finish it.

Additional Information:

This board was published by Mary Ann Mulroe ( as a library bulletin board. I used the basic theme, but tweaked it for my own PE use. My students loved it!
