PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Jumping Jack-o-lanterns

Category: Holiday-Halloween

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: rope, vine of leaves, Halloween border, letters, jack-o-lanterns, black background paper, cut out stars


This board was created to combine the unit we were on (jump rope) and Halloween. I put black paper on the board with a fun Halloween border. Then I made paper jack-o-lanterns and cut some rope and knotted each end to create the jump ropes for the jack-o-lanterns. Then I used pre-cut letters to put on the slogan. I purchased a vine of fall leaves from a craft store and stapled those to the bottom. Finally, I put on some silver and yellow stars.

I do love the Jack-o-lantern idea, I just wish I did not have so many that would not be able to participate, because it is a Halloween activity. I miss the good old days.
