What is the summer bulletin board?
A Bulletin board is basically a corkboard used in schools, colleges, or universities for posting any notice, important announcements, or so on. However, when this board is used for fun purposes by attaching some summer objects, it is then called a summer bulletin board.

Requirements for summer bulletin board game
There are not many things you require for making a summer bulletin board. But you must have the below things for a successful project.
It is the first thing you need for the project. Basically, bulletin boards are made of cork material that makes it easier for you to conveniently remove the objects or paper pieces whenever you need them. The board can be 3 by 2 foot, 4 by 2 foot, 4 by 3 foot, 7 by 4 foot, etc. in dimensions.
So there is no standards size for bulletin boards. You can also use fabric or flannel cloth over the board. However, if you don’t find any corkboard, you can use a blackboard or whiteboard instead.
If you want to decorate the board with handmade objects, you need a lot of paper. The papers should come in different colors and your task is to draw the object and then cut it.
For drawing objects on paper, you need pencils.
Just drawing the objects on paper and cutting them won’t provide your kids great thrill if you don’t color the objects. You should use paint colors to bring a realistic look to the objects.
Cut the drawn objects on the paper with the scissor. If you are a kid, then do this under the guidance of an adult one.
Use the glue to attach the small paper pieces to make a proper object and lastly use it to attach them to the board. You can also use pins instead of glue for attaching the objects on the board.

Ideas about summer bulletin board game
If you have a corkboard and the other required materials, you can make different types of summer bulletin boards quite easily.
Into the beach
You can create an environment of the beach where the sun is brightly shining and you guys are relaxing near the shore. You can make a couple of palm trees, the waves, a shining sun, a colorful umbrella and a few persons for this.
Banana trees with monkeys
Again, you can use the seashore situation or other situations and attach a few banana trees on the board. Then draw different parts of the monkey’s body and then attach these parts before attaching them on the board.
Play between cloud and sun
Take white paper and draw the clouds. Use sky blue color to draw the sides of the clouds. Draw a sun and then attach it all into the sky. You can also add a few birds in there.
Using the flip flop
You guys are walking towards the sea and now show your footprints by attaching the flip-flops on the board.
Digging for water
The extreme sunlight above your head is burning you and you are digging for water to quench your thirst. You need to draw a few buckets and shovels for this. You can add a large brown paper on the down part of the board to show the soil.
You can draw the large sun with a smiley face and draw a lot of rays around the round-shaped object. What is the most interesting aspect of this smiling sun is that you can add different quotes inside pieces of rays, which have some educative values.
Wave and the boat
Riding on the boat against the wave in hot summer can also be a nice scenario. You can need to draw waves of blue, sky blue, or such colors and then draw the boats. Attach the boats on the waves to complete the scenario.
The kids really love Ice-creams during summer, and you can show a confrontation between ice cream and sun on the board as well.
You can create a summer bulletin board in your home or in the school to provide the kids with some fun. Add some educative aspects to get double profit from the board.
