Are you looking for something creative to put on the bulletin board in your computer lab? This one is terrific! While the keys on this board were made with clamshell shaped take out cartons, many other materials will also give the 3D look. Think about using square Chinet dessert plates. They will also give the keyboard look. While these keys are colored to show finger placement, you could also use the Ellison die cut letters only for a lab that is used for older students to give the appearance of a real keyboard.

Think of taking this idea and matching the colors to your computers. If you have black machines, make a black background for your bulletin board. Gray machines could have a gray background. Use border to enhance the colors. For example, with a black background, use a border with black and bright colored strips or polka dots.

Create a second bulletin board with the same background and border. On this board, add additional information students would need to know in the computer lab.
