Spring Mindfulness Bulletin Board with QR Codes
I created this colorful, interactive, spring bulletin board for our March & April PBIS theme, mindfulness. I made this bulletin board interactive for students by adding QR Codes with different mindfulness activities.
Since most things need to be touch-less right now, I thought using QR Codes would be an easy way for students to access some mindfulness activities.
If you are not familiar with QR Codes, QR stands for Quick Response. QR Codes are scannable with a smart device camera (iPad, tablet, or smart phone). you can easily make your own QR codes by using a QR Code generator. You can link the QR Code to a website or online document. When the user scans the QR Code they will be directed to the link. I used QR Code Generator to create the QR Codes.
I got the idea for this bulletin board while looking for mindfulness resources. I stumbled upon a New York Times article about "Pinwheel Breathing." This sent me down a rabbit hole of brainstorming a pinwheel bulletin board.
You can access the pinwheel tutorial I used, the words "Make time for mindfulness!" and the pre-linked QR Codes by clicking here or on the image below.
Below are the materials I used to create the interactive Spring Mindfulness Bulletin Board:
Pinwheels: this AstroBrights cardstock, stone AstroBrights paper for the sticks, and brass fasteners for the center of the pinwheels. Tip for the pinwheels: I poked a hole in the middle and on each triangle before sticking the brass fastener into the cardstock. It made it much easier to get the brass fastener in the cardstock.
Background: light blue craft roll paper
Grass: AstroBrights Green Paper
Sun, clouds, and the paper behind the QR codes: AstroBrights cardstock
Letters and QR codes: white printer paper
Are you a fan of creating bulletin boards? I feel like you either love it or hate it! I personally love making bulletin boards. It is a way for me to express my creativity. Creating this bulletin board was my self-care on Friday afternoon! I love how it adds some spring to the School Counseling Office.
Let me know if you use these ideas to make your own bulletin board! I'd love to see it!
