I can't believe it's already Spring! Time has gone by too fast! I don't know about you guys, I've had a hard time getting back into my full schedule after the CNY break. But I'm still really glad I'm back to my full schedule, and that the beginning of my day has moved forward an hour.
In celebration of Spring, St. Patrick's Day, and Easter, I created a background just for this time of year. In my last post, I showed you all My VIPKID Classroom UPGRADE. These have some pretty drastic changes in the design and structure of my classroom background. I shared with you that I was updating my Cloudy Sky background. I've changed it from just a cloudy sky to a SPRING background!
I've been working more on creating a scenery in my background instead of just random stuff. My last few backgrounds have been less than stellar (in my opinion) because it just looked like random stuff in the background. What I love about this background is that there is a clear theme and it seems to have movement with the rain (maybe I'm just making that part up...). But I LOVE the Dino sun.
I found the tree and flower patch on Google. I can't share these photos because of copyright reasons. But you'll be able to find them if you put in "tree clipart" or "flower patch clipart." The raindrops are blue colored paper cut out to look like a raindrop. Then I put on a circle adhesive hoop velcro piece. I also attached the tree, sun, and flower patch with these pieces as well.
To make it more appropriate for St. Patrick's Day, I added a St. Patrick Dino, four leaf clover, and a pot of gold (which is shown below). I simply taped them onto the tree so I can take it off and replace it with my Easter Decor.
You might be wondering, how did you string up those clouds? I had used these for party decorations a couple of years ago. When I made them, you had to hang up each piece individually. I used to do this when I set the cloudy sky theme up. Doesn't quite work if you need to set this all up in 1-2 minutes. So I added another piece of twine and tied each cloud onto it. The photo is shown below. (If you need details of how I hung up this cloud banner, check out My VIPKID Classroom UPGRADE)
For my Easter background, I just switched out the St. Patrick's Day characters on the tree for Easter characters. I also added characters onto the flower patch.
Design credit for the Dino characters goes to VIPKID Teacher Christina. I love incorporating Dino in any way that I can. I am so thankful for talented artists in the VIPKID community. My backgrounds wouldn't be what they are with out you guys!
And that's it! Cute and easy to set up. Thanks for reading, if you'd like to see more, please subscribe (Facebook, Pinterest, email...doesn't matter). See you next time!
