They look great, and can also double as a learning tool during classroom activities throughout the school year.
Plants are always an excellent way to decorate and add some life to any space. With these Super Simple planters made from recycled materials, your plants will look super cute too!

We love mobiles for decorating! This homemade mobile is simple to make and looks great too. Try making a bunch of stars from popsicle sticks and hang them from the ceiling, just like in the classroom from The Alphabet Song.
Children love to role play and it’s an important part of learning. Make sure to dedicate a part of your space to role play and decorate the space for the occasion! Our Restaurant Play Set has everything you need to set up a play restaurant including decorations, play money, menus and more!
Posters are a super easy way to add some decoration to your walls, and we have you covered. We’ve created song lyrics posters to some of your favorite Super Simple songs, full of fun graphics and color. The posters make for great decorations, but also are a wonderful way to follow along to the song when it’s time to sing!
This craft is a wonderful way to include your little learners in the decorating process. These parrots are simple to put together, and are made with the cut outs of your own hands and feet! It’s a great way to personalize your decorations for the people who will be using the room most often. The parrots can be attached to the wall, or hung from the ceiling. You can also make a big tree from craft paper for the wall, and attach all the parrots to the tree to make a beautiful mural piece that everyone helped to make.
Advent Calendars are typically found during the holiday season, but we think they are wonderful anytime of year and can look great hanging from a string with clothespins. Use colorful envelopes or decorate your own any way you like, and write a number on each one. You can use any number of envelopes as you like! Place a note inside of the envelops and hang them in order from a string. You can plan your advent calendar anyway you like, opening one a day, or making one day a week the special day to open an envelope. Inside the envelope could be anything! A special message, an activity to do, a song to sing, or people’s birthdays! The envelopes can be reused many times by changing the paper inside, making a wonderful interactive decoration that can last all year!
Many of us have old CDs that no longer have any purpose… until now! Our CD fish look great and are super easy to make! You can use the CD fish to decorate a whole underwater wall, or create a diorama to place somewhere in the room. They also are great hung up, either from the ceiling, desk or shelves. Finally the old CDs can be used for something useful!
We love these kindness rocks as a way to add some color and positive messages throughout the room. These decorations are made just with paint and rocks that you can find outside! Make a number of rocks, all different colors, and place them throughout the classroom – on windowsills, shelves and corners of the room. Little ones will love to find them, and they help add some simple color to otherwise bare spaces!
We hope this list helps brighten your space for a wonderful year of learning and exploring with your little learners. We’d love to see pictures of your decorated spaces – please feel free to share them with us through email or social media!
