Jungle Classroom Decorating Ideas
Have fun creating the ultimate jungle classroom. (tigers image by Olga Chernetskaya from Fotolia.com)

Create a miniature Amazon jungle oasis within your own classroom by decorating it with exotic plants and jungle-themed embellishments. Ask the kids to help you create a classroom jungle world, and use some of their own art to pull everything together. Feature notice boards with the children's favourite jungle animals, like lions, tigers and zebras.

Jungle Photos

Ask the kids to help you paint jungle-themed picture frames. Buy wooden frames and paint zebra patterns, leopard print and tiger stripes. Choose a different pattern for each frame. Allow the paint to dry and then place photos of animals and jungle destinations in each frame. Hang these up throughout the classroom.


Place miniature palm trees, ferns or other exotic plants in the classroom. Small banana palm trees can go in the corners of the class, while ferns and other plants can go near a window or on a table. Place small plants on your desk. This added greenery creates a jungle-like atmosphere throughout the class.

Over-Sized Stuffed Animals

Buy oversized stuffed animals at department stores or online. Look for giraffes, tigers, lions, snakes and other animals to dress up your classroom. Place these animals in the reading area, or scatter them throughout the class near plants or in empty corners. Look for monkeys that you can also hang from the ceiling.


Hang up jungle artwork all throughout the classroom. Use yarn to hang flying jungle animals or insects like dragonflies or butterflies from the ceiling. You can also adorn notice boards with paintings and artwork of zebras, monkeys and other jungle animals that the children make. Paint rocks with zebra, tiger or leopard print and use these as paper weights and other decorations on tables in the classroom.
