I loved the simplicity and the sophistication of the designs. I am often turned off by goofy art on classroom décor. It can often pigeon hole you into a particular grade level. This design is appropriate for Kindergarten students as well as high school kids!
Animal prints paired with soothing blues and greens creates a calming and exotic environment for your students.
An abundance of greenery creates the perfect backdrop for your animal prints and animal silhouettes!
Animal print lanterns and the words “Adventure,” “Discover,” and “Explore” sets the tone for the classroom theme.
I made a large giraffe silhouette as the focal point of the room!
Don’t forget your desk! There are so many great options out there to create a beautiful desk. I bought the zebra desk accessories, globe, vase, and picture frame from Hobby Lobby. The pretty green lamp is from Target. Animal cards and stationary were in the dollar section at Michaels.
Michaels has a fantastic National Geographic line of animal items and décor in the dollar section of their store. There were so many things to choose from to pull the theme together!
What a beautiful print for your Animal Adventure theme! The print is available in the Schoolgirl Style Shop!
This is one of my favorite décor items…a Welcome sign for your door! I used a cardboard frame from Lakeshore and twine to hang my sign!
I love the maps on the bulletin boards. The maps give an exotic feel to your classroom and it also pulls your color theme together of soothing blues, greens, and browns.
I used another map on this bulletin board. Using maps of every shape and size is such a clever way to cover your boards. My boards are small, so the map covers it perfectly. I would actually prefer to overlap several maps. It gives it a more eclectic look for this theme. Don’t be afraid to overlap and create a quilt like effect to your boards.
Table signs can be added to tables or hung from the ceiling. This particular table sign is in a zebra gable box that was transformed into a planter. I added a piece of Styrofoam, greenery, an earth cutout, and a sign for an amazing table decoration! If you can’t have items hanging from your ceiling, this is a great alternative! Can you imagine walking into this classroom on Open House night, Parent/Teacher Conferences, or even on the first day of school and seeing these on the tables? Amazing!
Animal Adventure nameplates, book basket labels, multipurpose labels, passports, and luggage tags from Schoolgirl Style. All of these items are EDITABLE! Customize with your own students names. Perfect writing every time!
Old suitcases gives your students the feeling that they traveled to a faraway place! You could even create your own suitcases with old shoeboxes! Wouldn’t that be super cute to hold their independent reading books?!? They can even have their own customized luggage tag tied to their suitcase! Let them decorate their own suitcases at the beginning of the school year!
Passports can be customized with your student’s names. These are perfect for field trips and when you have a substitute teacher in your classroom!
Binoculars from Dollar Tree are a cute addition to your Animal Adventure theme!
Luggage tags are EDITABLE! Green wicker baskets are from Target.
Nameplates are EDITABLE too!
Zebra gable boxes are used as a crayon/supply container by adding an empty wipe container inside! The wipe container fits perfectly in this box and keeps the zebra box from being torn or bent! Love this idea!
Animal print boxes from Michaels…
Animals from Michaels are adorable hot glued on to the top of my favorite containers! Containers are from Michaels as well. Multipurpose labels are attached with twine. I love the authentic look of twine as opposed to ribbon in this theme!
Lanterns are from Oriental Trading…
More animals and containers from Michaels. Tags by Schoolgirl Style!
I used the apple tree from Creative Teaching Press in a non-traditional way for this theme. Instead of using the trunk, I only used the branches with an abundance of leaves. Look how I stuck the branches underneath the borders and draped the top of the bulletin board!
I used the cluster of leaves that came with the apple tree from Creative Teaching Press to create a border of lush foliage! This look is amazing with this theme. I also used a grass table skirt to line my cupboards.
Word Wall labels that coordinate with the Animal Adventure theme. Labels come editable in case you would prefer a more traditional font for your Word Wall!
Shopping for this theme was extremely easy! Everywhere I went, I found accessories that would coordinate perfectly. The baskets are from Dollar Tree, the planter is from Rite Aid, and the globe is from Kmart.
