they always love to paint, and what better then to make their own chalkboard!?
another awesome idea, courtesy of Real Simple:
What you need:
- Place frame on newspaper in a well-ventilated area. Paint frame and let it dry.
- Pop in a favorite photo. Using the chalk, write your special message.
this of course was featured around Valentine's day, but doesn't have to be limited to that...you can find many colors of paint, and customize to any holiday! also, you can just paint other wooden surfaces, to make your own mini chalkboards! kids can practice their letters and numbers, erase and start again!!
