Birthday Wall Ideas for Daycare (15 Beautiful Ideas)

Birthday Wall Ideas for Daycare

It is enjoyable to celebrate a person’s birthday. It’s a particular day, after all! Birthdays are particularly exciting for kids. It is essential for students to feel valued, cared for, and appreciated by creating a birthday board within the Daycare. Additionally, acknowledging their birthdays helps them feel like part of the family.

However, keeping track of students’ birthdays can be challenging, so we’ve provided you with 15 birthday board ideas to help you create an outstanding display for each child’s birthday.

Decoration Ideas for A Daycare’s Birthday Wall

Daycare birthday walls are a simple and easy way to ensure that every child in your class feels special on their special day, and there’s another bonus: Set up a bulletin board or birthday chart at the beginning of the year, and you don’t have to change out names and dates every month. One corner of the room is taken care of as long as the birthday decor remains all year round. That’s awesome!

Idea 1: “Under the Sea” Theme Birthday Wall

I love this Under the Sea-themed classroom birthday board idea. Here’s a twist on the jellyfish bulletin board: each month is displayed on a jellyfish’s body, and each student’s birthday is shown on a tentacle.

Using the following materials, we created an “Under the Sea” birthday bulletin board:

1) Wrapping paper in aqua color

2)Featuring jellyfish, a rainbow Happy Birthday pennant banner, and sea animal cutouts, this jellyfish birthday display template

3)Dark blue and white crepe paper streamers

4)Yarn ball with a fancy look

5)colored cardboard to create the coral

6)yellow and green party decorations.

 Idea 2: A cupcake display for the birthday Wall

Among our birthday-themed teacher resources, this cupcake birthday board is one of the most popular! You will need the following items to create a cupcake birthday bulletin display:

  1. Using a bulletin board or blank wall
  2. Using colored wrapping paper as a background
  3. Chart with cupcakes for birthdays 

Printing Tips: Print one cupcake per page with this downloadable Cupcakes Birthday Display. Printing the candle pages at full size gives the appropriate proportions for the cupcakes. Make a smaller cupcake birthday wall using the same size cupcakes and candles.

Idea 3: Bulletin board for Ice Cream Birthdays

Birthday cupcakes are great, but ice cream birthday walls take celebration dessert displays to a new level! We print out every month of the year on a waffle ice cream cone, and then students get a blank scoop on which to write their names and birthdays (we love putting these in the cherries! ), as well as decorate however they want.

To create this ice cream-themed birthday wall, we used: Template for an ice cream birthday display (including a Happy Birthday picture, waffle cone ‘months,’ and ice cream scoop). That’s it! Here’s how to make this display with just a bulletin board or wall, some scissors, mounting putty, and a printable file!

Printing Tip: Using the Template, we printed all pages at full size to create this sample classroom birthday board. Make sure the cones and scoops are published at the same reduced size if you want to create a smaller display!

Idea 4: Rainbow Balloons Birthday Board Idea

Hands up if you love rainbows! You won’t believe how easy it is to make a classroom birthday wall! The printable Balloon Birthday Chart is another fun classroom display with a prominent birthday theme. Here are the materials we used to create this birthday bulletin board:

1)Using a black display board (although significant black chart papers would also work)

2)Strings of different colors

3)Template for a balloon birthday chart

4)Pennant Banner with Rainbows for Happy Birthday

Printing Tips: We print two pages of each Balloon Birthday Template and Rainbow Happy Birthday Pennant Banner to create this sample display. Print the size of the entire balloon and hang the banner across one string if you want to create a more extensive, landscape-oriented collection. Ensure the proportions of both balloons don’t seem too out of place by printing them at a smaller size.

Idea 5: Gift Bag Birthday Board

The birthday board is easy to make. You can use cute gift bags to display the birthdays for each month!

A blank birthday board is also a terrific purchase for the classroom. This dry-erase board is a perfect reminder calendar board that can quickly be filled in and used yearly.
