PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Merry Fitness and A Healthy New You! (Christmas)

Category: Holiday-Christmas/Winter

Suggested Grade Level: K-5

Materials: Black background paper, holographic letters and border, an exercising Santa Claus cut-out, a snowman and some holly (from a local store)


Complete with "belly wrinkles" and a "swoosh" on his shorts, Santa is showing the students that he also needs to exercise, while at the same time, wishing them "A Merry Fitness and A Healthy New You".

Any letters and border can be used, but I used the holographic ones because they reflected the lights in the gym and gave off a rainbow effect. (Christmas lights could also be used as a border).

I found the "Exercising Santa" on the internet-many to choose from.

Additional Information:

One of my little ones told me that Mrs. Claus probably told Santa to exercise to get rid of his "jelly belly". The students figured out Santa's message!
