5 Colorful Back To School Bulletin Boards To Spark Your Imagination

Color Swatch Calendar


Need a pop of color to keep the whole family organized? I love this paint swatch calendar! Even with an online calendar, not all of my kids have mobile devices. One like this set-up near our kitchen is just what we need for all of the big events and deadlines. You better believe all of my daughter’s swim schedule will be on it!

Sticky Note Calendar


I know this might sound a bit crazy, but last year I ended up making a calendar on the fourth day of school. By then, I didn’t have time to run out and buy something fun as most of my budget had been spent. Instead, I  made something similar to this sticky note calendar. This idea served us well as a family bulletin board, though it did require a bit of time on my part to change it out every month. I love how this version blends into the home decor seamlessly.

Mud Room Command Central


Sunshine and quotes from Grandma? What a lovely way to start off the school year. I love how bright, cheery and organized this bulletin board feels. Check out that color-coded calendar! My inner perfectionist is leaping for joy with this fun set-up. More importantly, I love how these are words and images that can inspire my kid every day before they head off to school.

Gallary Wall Style


This bulletin board set-up has a little bit of everything. Check out all the features this savvy mom added including a chore chart, calendar, place for notes, and some beautiful decor! The gallery wall style is such a fun trend right now, and I love how this fun mix all comes together into an epic command center.

Simple And Savvy


Sometimes less it more, which is why I love this to-do list board. There is a huge open space for your family to write notes back and forth, or to keep the most important family projects on top. Did you see the cute spot for hanging papers? Perfect for those last minute forms you almost forgot to sign for school.

  6. Cute ideas, I actually use some of these already. Our calendar is color coded. Each person has a certain color ink. We have a large command center in the kitchen, it includes, calendar. chore charts, high fives, menu, jobs at meal time. I am so going to try the paint swatches, for the kids individual calendars in their rooms.

  7. Loving these bulletin boards! I plan to change the one that I have in the office to a brighter colored one! These ideas are really adorable. They’re the perfect reference!
