It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these but I’m so excited to bring it back to you with this one today! This one is not just for parents, it’s for teachers, photographers, planners, and if you love quotes as decor, it’s for you too!!
When I got my chalkboards from Chalk Full of Design last spring, I wasn’t sure they’d be of much use for us for quite a while. I thought Owen was too young for them at the time. They sat on a shelf as decoration.
As much as I would love to frame them (so easy – just take out the glass and replace the frame backing…just think how cute they would look on the wall in a nursery or play room!) I really love them as educational tools. When I Owen started taking an interest learning his alphabet and numbers, I was so excited to bust out those boards but had to get a little creative. Rather than use them to learn how to write, we improvised. He picked up on his letters and numbers much faster than I expected.
Aren’t these boards so cool?! Now I keep them accessible for Owen so he can practice whenever he wants. The boards are made of sturdy, 1/4 hardboard. The lettering is done with permanent, oil-based paint to ensure a long-lasting, no smudge finish. And they are all hand-made to order!
There’s no mess, the chalk simply wipes off with maybe just a little dust. A damp cloth cleans them up in a jiff.
