I have had no free time in the past couple of months while I have been substitute teaching. No time to be creative at home, so I will share a bulletin board background that I made for the 1st grade classroom as we learned about the desert. Since this photo, we have added cacti and animals, but I don't have a picture of that. I had originally had a blue background on the top and a brown background at the bottom. Too boring. So, I started tearing paper, making a collage sunset. Fun, but time consuming.
