Bubble Gum Back to School Theme

This was my bulletin board outside my door last year.

Close up of bubble gum machine I made..
It was made from white and red poster board and silver glitter.
(because I love glitter!!)

Their homework folders had bubble gum labels on the outside.

And thanks to a childhood friend--- who had this in her room when we were growing up. We had a real gumball machine! Her dad dug it out of storage for me and I gave it a fresh coat of paint.. and we enjoyed gumballs ALL YEAR LONG!

Every afternoon if their behavior had been good they could get one gumball before they left for the day.


  1. THE CUTEST thing(s) I have ever seen!!!! I LOVE THIS!!! You are so artsy! I'm a new follower! Can't wait to check out the rest of your blog!

  2. Love this!!!


  3. Just pinned your cute bulletin board on Pinterest!

    Love it! I may have to "steal" your idea for my back to school BB. ;)

  4. Love your ideas! I am following you!

  5. I love the bubble gum idea!! Bubble gum is my favorite. I am obsessed with glitter, too.

  6. I can't believe it! I had a bubble gum machine just like yours when I was a second grader! I think it's why I love bubble gum. I did the "How to blow a bubble" writing lesson by SOS teachers the last week of school with my second graders and we had a blast!

  7. This is the cutest! :)

    Pop on over to my blog! I spotlighted you on a Blog Mixer Linky. :)

  8. Hi Kacey! We LOVE this bulletin board and added it to our gumball bulletin board feature on our blog, Bulletin Board Ideas! We were sure to give idea/photo credit, as well as a link back to your blog, but we'd love if you'd take a look at it! We'll certainly remove the feature if there are any problems :)

    Thanks so much!
