Crayon Themed Classroom Decor Ideas

This post is a growing listing of Crayon Themed Classroom Ideas that are perfect for a kindergarten or First Grade classroom.  A crayon theme is all about embracing differences and uniqueness. Scroll down to see crayon themed printables. Most crayon classroom decor printables have lots of scribble frames that give a colorful sketchy look.

Make a Welcome back to school bulletin board like this using a rainbow markers border trim and these crayon cut-outs. (#ad)

These crayon themed name plates for desks and name tags for students are really colorful and you just have to laminate them to make them durable. For the names tags in the picture above, they were each glued onto bright cardstock which looks so amazing.

I think that scribble patterns go perfectly with a crayon theme because it looks like the scribbles could have been shaded in with crayons. It reminds me of Elmo's World on Sesame Street, the set there rocks the crayon scribbles and it is so cute. So, you can merge the use of scribble borders, labels, and letters to decorate your classroom like in the picture above. (#ad)

TpT has printable scribble frames for classroom decor like these scribble labels (#ad).

I found this crayon themed classroom decor video in an Amazon review for a crayon themed porch sign. I love what the teacher did to decorate her classroom wall with so many crayon themed bulletin boards. Some of the bulletin board posters and cutouts she used are already mentioned in this blog post.

If you want to make a huge bulletin board with large crayon boxes, the crayon box shaped pages of this notepad (#ad) can each be laminated and cut out to create large cut outs that you can write on.

How to Make Large Crayon Props for Classroom Decorations
If you want to know how to make giant crayons, you'll need mailing tubes for the cylinder part, paper mache cones for the tips, and sheets of bulletin board paper for the paper wraps (in differemt colors). You will also need spray paint in different colors. In the first picture above, a teacher created large crayons for her class. She used a black scalloped bulletin board border trim (#ad) around the 'neck' and 'tail' of each crayon. In the second picture, these mailing tubes were used to create the large crayon props. These kind of DIY crayon props make cute classroom decorations, especially for preschool.

More ideas will be added soon.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
