If you haven’t jumped on the Pinterest band wagon yet, please consider this a formal introduction. Pinterest is a website and a mobile app that lets users capture ideas and bookmark websites using a photo-based interface. Your collection of “pins” are categorized into “boards” much like the real-life bulletin boards where we might pin photos, recipes and quotes we like.
When you visit Pinterest, you can browse through neverending pages filled with fun bulletin board ideas, garden decor, recipes, craft activities, printable worksheets, handmade art, home decor or whatever else you’re looking for. Once you’re registered and signed in you’re free to create your own boards reflecting the things you’re interested in.
When you come across a board that has several things you like, you can “follow” the board and their newest pins will show in your feed. This way, you don’t have to hunt down new ideas, they will flow in your direction and you can keep (pin) the ones you want and leave the rest behind.
Here are the top 5 best Pinterest boards we recommend for fun classroom bulletin board ideas:
Yes, this one is ours, so of course it’s first. We’ve chosen these boards because they reflect a wide variety of age levels and creative use of 3d and interactive elements.

I highly recommend checking out some of the pins on Project Ideas for School Students or Art Room Ideas.
