Default Safe Alternative For Bulletin Board?

I am trying to think of an alternative for a bulletin board since I do not want to use pushpins in the daycare room. A magnetic board will not work either since I am reluctant to have magnets in the room as well.

Any ideas?

What about a ribbon board?

What are you wanting to do with the board? Hang art work? parent notices? daily info (meaning you need to change it often)?

something like this?,r:0,s:0

I tape all my notices by my front door. I also have a wall of pictures of past an present daycare kids and all ages and stages, that the kids can look at (and touch). Just laminated and taped to the wall.

I use double-sided tape. Not ideal but better than push pins.

I have one at the front door with push pins for parent notices and such that is out of the reach of children. The one in the playroom for kids stuff I use double sided tape.

Guess it really depends on what you want to use it for. I used to have a regular cork bulletin board that I hot glued little clips onto that I could slide papers into to avoid the use of pushpins. I like to use dry erase boards now because of the versatility - I can write quick things on them with marker, can tape printed notices to them, can use magnets, or again, glue clips onto them.

I laminate my stuff, and use 3m stickys to stick it to the wall. Then boarder it with colorful bulletin board stuff to make it look kid friendly.
For the things I want on the wall that I change, like a weekly lesson plan and weekly menu, I use pocket folders, and stick that to the wall. Then just change out the paper each week.
