Christmas is one of the biggest holidays celebrated in the United States each year. Kids love the idea of Santa, of elves and the North Pole, and getting presents because they’ve been good. When you add Christmas decorations to your classroom door, you give students a magical environment to learn in. There’s no such thing as “too much” Christmas decoration.

Note: Thanksgiving is just as popular – check out our Thanksgiving door decorations as well!

When you add holiday decorations to your classroom door, there’s no reason you have to work in two dimensions. You can use three-dimensional decorations to add depth to door scenes. You might employ hanging curtains or spiral decorations to give students tactile contact with the decorations. There are even full-color scenes printed on door-shaped posters.

Your classroom can help to get students into the festive spirit of the season. Everyone’s excited about winter and holidays and vacation. Make their learning environment a place they’re excited to be.

Here are some of the neatest Christmas classroom door decorations:
