PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Jumping Jack O Lanterns

Category: Holiday-Halloween

Suggested Grade Level: K-5

Materials: Ellison letters, construction paper, jump ropes, paint, markers


This fun bulletin board is perfect for October. I made pumpkins look like all the different sports our kids might play. Tennis, basketball, football, soccer, volleyball and baseball. I also made a pumpkin that was multi-sport (I used celophane). I attached old jump ropes to the pumpkins to include the sport of jump rope. An alternate title I have used in the past has been "P.E. Pumpkin Patch".

Additional Information:

All pumpkin were hand drawn and cut. Use appropriate colored paper (white paper for soccer ball then black marker or green paper for tennis ball with white paint).
