herappleness has a number of good ideas you can use, especially when it comes to desgining your board. The rocking horse should definitely be the dominant image in the centre and then you can position other characters around the horse. Have you thought about using lines or arrows to express the relationshp between characters and talk about motivation? You can also use other symbols to explore some of the key themes in the story such as greed and materialism. Think creatively and symbolically!

I'm the crafty-wafty type, so how about you trace a rocking horse and cut out the posterboard in the shape of a rocking horse?

You can make your on rocking horse, and on the saddle you can write: Main Characters- Paul, the mother, the Uncle, etc.

On the bottom, where the horse swings, you can write the title of the story.

All around the horse, you can list other important information such as themes,  author, etc.  Just make a big graffitti of information on a poster board shaped as a rocking horse
