It's a variation on the "Welcome Bach" board and works well on larger
boards. Cover the background with neon or very dark green paper. Put the title
across the top in black letters. In the center, put a picture of a well (Print
Shop) followed by a plus sign (+), a picture of a comb and a picture of Bach
(Well + comb Bach). Cut out words from magazines, newspapers or whatever for
the riddles and paste to an outer page (I bordered white paper with black
question marks). Staple the page to the board with a second page underneath it
with the answer to the riddle printed on it. The riddles are all about Bach.
For example, "Where did Bach write his most famous concerti?" Answer:
Brandenburg. "What instruments did Bach play?" Answer: Organ and violin.
"What ended with Bach's death in 1753?" Answer: The Baroque period.
Cover any open space on the board with black questions marks. A stamp and black
ink pad work well for this. I have an huge board to cover, so I used eight
riddles in all. Two of the riddles were just for fun. "What is Bach doing
today?" Answer: Decomposing. "Why did Beethoven sell all his
chickens?" Answer: They kept running around saying, "Bach, Bach,
