Familiar Objects

One great idea for decorating your space is to pick counting wall art ideas that use familiar objects. Like this example above, you can use a photo of fridge magnet numbers, something that your students most likely have in their own home! Find flash cards or counting tiles that you often use throughout your teaching in the classroom or at home and take a picture of them. Use a good camera, and then upload your photo to create a custom wall mural. If you cannot take your own photo, you can find something here at Limitless Walls that will be perfect for your classroom.

Familiar objects area smart choice as it can help your students and the children you watch feel at home with items that they recognize. This solution is smart as often times, younger children might struggle with separation and may want to see familiar objects that remind them of home.

Young Children

Another great idea for decorating your space is to use counting wall art that includes children. If you used wall art with just adults it might be the wrong message for your audience. So pick photos that show young kids learning with a teacher or a parent. Make sure that the image includes counting resources. These kind of images give your students and visitors a visual representation of the fun and importance of counting and how it can further their education.

Pick an image that has high quality, generally a jpeg or tiff file that has a 2000 x 2000 resolution size with a 300 dpi. This will guarantee that your photo will print clearly and will be sharp and not blurry.

Counting Hands

Student & Teachers

Another great idea for decorating your room is to use an image that includes both teachers and students learning counting together. This image is a great example as it shows a classroom setup and a student learning how to count with a fun and colorful abacus. Different kinds of counting wallpaper ideas should always include images of counting resources, whether it is the abacus, calculator, hands or something else. Make sure your wallpaper has items that the students will recognize and be familiar with.

Counting Collage

This counting wall mural is another way to showcase different resources for conducting math and learning to count. Like this example below, find several different photos that you like and put them up in a collage on one wall of the room. Make sure that you use an odd number of photos, and pick ones that are all edited with the same color filter or have similar colors in each photo. You want to have an overall vibe or theme to your collage and picking a consistent color theme in your photos is the best way to accomplish this.

Counting Poster

A simpler counting wallpaper idea is to find a poster of the numbers zero through nine. This is a simple idea as you can use a white background with just colored numbers. A counting wallpaper like this will blend in seamlessly with the wall behind it, making the numbers stick out in a very bold and bright fashion. If you do not want a rectangular wall mural, you can instead pick wall decals and put them up throughout the room, or put them up in a line like this below.

We hope that any of these counting wallpaper ideas will help get your creative juices going and help you find another great idea for decorating your classroom or daycare center.
