Christmas Door Contest

Our school hosted a Christmas door decorating contest... Let me first start by saying that we are just a little extremely competitive. We hear contest and break out all the bells and whistles. This contest was no exception. Please enjoy this explosion of holiday ideas! I cannot take credit for any of them, but wanted the world to catch a glimpse of the creativity of our teachers!


Here's the gingerbread house right next to my room. The kids had their faces on gingerbread men and the principal was the big gingerbread man on the door - she even made a roof out of an old refrigerator box to hang from the ceiling. I know. Over. The. Top!

Library door, complete with singing reindeer and an original Christmas song!  "Hope your holidays are merry... Fa la la la la la la la la... With some books from the library... Fa la la la la la la la la..."

"I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas"

Charlie Brown Christmas, complete with vintage Christmas lights!


Our reading center was turned into a Reindeer stable and the reading specialist had the kids make each of the teachers as a reindeer... Priceless!

Polar Express - the students were all in their bathrobes and the teacher even put their pictures on tickets. They also do a big Polar Express day, so this will make it even cooler!

The Grinch's cave - showing him how he can care... LOVE!

A collection of snow globes.

The Island of Misfit Teachers - each of the teachers had their face plastered onto a character from Rudolph... I was Hermie.  My life is complete.

Penguin Party - the teacher made herself an eskimo and all the kids were penguins.

Over-sized Santa... Pretty cool!

Mele Kalikimaka!

Who-ville! Our reading teacher is ob-SEUSSED with Dr. Seuss. She's that bubbly thing sitting at her desk being super productive.

We have, hands down, the most amazing custodial staff. Our daytime custodian decided to decorate his "office" to join in the fun. 

The nurse's office!!

The list goes on and on...
 
 

Do you have any fun holiday door ideas? Please share! We'll all be trying to one-up ourselves next year!

Your ideas are simply awesome!! I wish that I still taught elementary school because I would totally be decorating my door and wall with the gingerbread theme! I repinned your idea and it has been repinned by over 40 people, just from me pinning it! Thank you so much for sharing and keep the great ideas coming!

Wow!!!! Just found you via Pinterest and had to let you know how impressive your school is (in case you didn't know already!) The kids are really fortunate to have such a terrific staff leading them.

I'm the librarian at Pioneer Middle school. I had a group of students take the music they like and set it to a reading theme. They then made posters to decorate my alcove to the library. My contribution was It's all about the book, 'bout the book. No Movie. Inspired by the song It's all about the Bass.
