If you have an extra-wide bulletin board, this reindeer is big and bold enough to fill it (and with additional space to display holiday crafts).
Ugly Christmas Sweaters
This is one of the most brilliant bulletin board ideas for December. Why not have the students custom design their own ugly Christmas sweater? Although in all honesty, I think the ones in this pic are pretty cute.
I love this one for its simplicity and versatility. If you leave out the paper tree, it is very easy to execute; all you need are wrapping paper rectangles, stick-on bows, and samples of the students’ writing.

Book List on Mittens
This versatile board could work for K-12. Highlight the books for December or your reading recommendations for winter break.
Unique as a Snowflake
I love the use of different lettering to convey the message that we should celebrate our differences! This is one of the bulletin board ideas for December that would work in classes pre-K-12.
Mittens Are Like Friends
I love the comparison of mittens and friends: “They work best together, help us stay warm and cozy on the inside, let us be one of a kind, are dependable, and protect us from feeling uncomfortable.”
Life in a Snowglobe
This craft is so adorable it makes the bulletin board mesmerizing. Paint plastic plates with flecks of white paint and mount the plates over photograph cut-outs of your students. The kids will love seeing themselves inhabit their very own snowglobes!
Cocoa Mini Book Reports
On each mug is a book report starter: “A good book to warm up to is…” with the students’ own personalized recommendation.
